President Joe Biden suspended new admissions into the Trump administration’s “Migrant Protection Protocols” through executive order on his first day in office, eroding a critical protection against asylum fraud and illegal immigration enacted by his predecessor.
The Migrant Protection Protocols mandated that the overwhelming majority of migrants who present themselves at the southern border and request asylum wait for the full adjudication of their asylum cases in Mexico, as opposed to the United States. The policy, which declined illegal immigrants a quick and easy pathway into the country through making a dubious asylum claim, proved highly effective at deterring mass illegal migration.
President Biden is also bringing a halt to many deportations, enacting a 100-day freeze on ICE removal operations. Exceptions for deportees include illegal migrants who have just been caught entering the country, and migrants currently incarcerated in jails, immigration detention centers, and prisons.
Biden’s gutting of immigration enforcement will serve as a de facto invitation for incoming caravans of migrants from Central America, who believe that the pro-amnesty President will provide them with United States residency, citizenship and public services. Biden has carefully sought to send the message that only illegals present in the country before his presidency are being provided amnesty, although his nominee for Secretary of Homeland Security refused to rule out admitting migrants traveling in the latest caravan.
‘Caravan’ style-migrants had proven ready and willing to abuse the antiquated and fraud-prone asylum system during Trump’s presidency and beforehand, a development that led to the use of the Migrant Protection Protocols in the first place. Now, it’s unclear to what extent economic migrants with doubtful asylum claims will be able to use to system to secure provisional American residency while their claims are litigated in the slow immigration court system.
Special coronavirus immigration guidelines remain in place that enable Customs and Border Patrol personnel to swiftly expel illegal aliens caught entering the country, a category of aliens that Biden’s first wave of amnesty proclamations doesn’t shield from enforcement.
With key Republican Senators such as Marco Rubio suggesting they’re uninterested in working on an amnesty package in the midst of the coronavirus and the economic recession, Biden may be left with no means to erode immigration enforcement other than executive orders, much like Barack Obama.
POLL: Republican Voters are Most Concerned About Illegal Immigration, Democrats Most Concerned About… Republicans!
The GOP needs to lead on strong immigration policy.
New polling from Echelon Insights reveals that while Republicans are most concerned about illegal immigration and left-wing anarcho-tyranny, Democrats are most concerned about heritage Americans.
The polling, which was released earlier in the week, asked respondents to identify political issues most of personal concern to them. Illegal immigration topped the list for Republicans. The Left’s attempt to abolish police and establish anarcho-tyranny in major US cities came in second place, with high taxes coming in third.
Questionable allusions to omnipresent ‘socialism’ and insinuations that Biden is a Communist failed to resonate with middle-class voters in the November presidential election and Georgia’s January Senate runoff election. While the issue remains a real concern of Republicans, Biden hasn’t implemented socialism. It’s unclear how much influence the socialist Left of Bernie Sanders and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez will have over his government.
However, his thorough gutting of immigration enforcement, administrative abolition of ICE, and termination of wall construction are very real and are tantamount to no less than an embrace of open borders unprecedented in American history.
Democrats are most unified in their hatred of Donald Trump supporters, and supposed white nationalism. The poll results for Democrats reveal that the Left has adopted a full, partisan-tribal sectarian approach to American politics.
Republicans need to deliver for their voters and hone in on a pro-American approach to deterring illegal immigration, and deporting those that infiltrate the borders. President Donald Trump originally ran on border security and stopping illegal immigration as his signature campaign issue in the 2016 election, promising to build a ‘big, beautiful’ wall to safeguard the border. In great part because of President Trump’s policy successes on illegal immigration, conservatives gradually started focusing elsewhere. However, now that Biden’s spurring the largest ‘caravan’ style wave of immigration in decades by gutting his ‘America First’ immigration policies, Republicans need to provide a real opposition, and pressure him into enforcing immigration law where they’re able.
It remains to be seen if the GOP will fight for the priorities of its voter base, or focus purely on entertainment-style reality show politics.
