The Trump administration is weighing a policy proposal that would protect state and local jurisdictions from being forced to accept potentially dangerous third-world refugees.
The administration is considering whether or not to allow state and local jurisdictions to deny refugees that have been approved for resettlement into the United States through the scandal-ridden globalist program.
A draft for the initial program states that “the federal government will resettle refugees only where both the relevant state and local governments have consented to participate.” Trump is expected to announce these changes via executive order in the upcoming days.
If a state or local government denies refugees under Trump’s plan, they would be resettled to a place with a government that supports refugee resettlement. The only exception would be spouses or kids of refugees who have already been resettled in a particular area.
Peter Boogaard, a federal immigration bureaucrat who worked under former President Barack Obama, believes the proposed policy would “have a dramatic impact on the ability of future administrations to return refugee admissions to the normal historic levels.”
Trump has already drastically decreased the amount of refugees who are being let into the country. The number is capped at 30,000 for fiscal year 2019, down from 85,000 in fiscal year 2016. The administration wants to drive that number down further, and groups that are on the federal dole to resettle refugees are crying foul that their gravy train is drying up.
“Governors could elect not to take part in the refugee resettlement program. That would have a horrible impact on the program. That would literally be an abdication of federal authority,” said Mark Hetfield, president of the Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society (HIAS), who also said Trump is pushing a “malevolent and wasteful plan to concentrate refugees in blue states.”
“The world is in the midst of the greatest humanitarian displacement crisis in almost a century. I strongly oppose any further reductions of the refugee resettlement program,” said Bishop Joe Vásquez, who serves as chair of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on Migration.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, Hebrew Immigrant Aid Society, and other religious and secular organizations have received millions in federal funds annually to traffic refugees into the U.S., which has given radicals like Reps. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) and Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) a nascent constituency in migrant enclaves like Minneapolis and Detroit. A recent investigation has shown that the international refugee resettlement industry is fueled by bribes rather than legitimate humanitarian concerns.
Border Patrol Officials Reporting Biden Surge in Illegal Immigration Following Election
They think they’ll be granted amnesty.
Senior Border Patrol officials are warning of a surge in illegal migration at the southern border in recent weeks, coming directly in response to perceived results of the still-pending presidential election.
Acting Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan is ascribing a 21% increase in apprehension levels at the border over the last month to both economic circumstances in Central America and “perceived and or anticipated shifts in policies” following the November 3rd election. Morgan was speaking to the Washington Times.
CBP personnel intercepted 69,000 illegal migrants at the southern border in October, up from 58,000 in September.
Illegal immigration levels declined in early 2020 due to the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, but they’ve increased in recent months as border crossers flee the effects of the virus’s recession in Central America and Mexico. CBP has been authorized by the Trump administration to use expedited “expulsion” policies to return illegal immigrants to the nation they came from on the basis of coronavirus public health concerns.
Joe Biden has pledged to open the borders of the United States, stating that he intends only to deport felons convicted of violent crimes while in the country illegally. This repudiation of immigration enforcement, if actually adopted, would likely lure tens of millions- if not hundreds of millions- of unauthorized migrants to the United States in various forms in coming years.
Biden has also pledged to grant American citizenship to more than 11 million illegal aliens present in the United States. This proposal would require the cooperation of Congress, but he can reinstate the DACA amnesty program through executive action.
Asylum seekers camped out in the Mexican border city of Matamoros reportedly celebrated Biden’s perceived victory, eager for a chance to obtain access to the United States’ welfare, public education, healthcare and infrastructure.
Illegal immigration and cheap labor advocates have claimed that porous borders are an inevitability, but the contrast between President Trump’s immigration enforcement and the ramifications from the mere international perception of a Joe Biden administration seems to suggest otherwise.
