Border Security

Inside Kushner’s Budget Bill, Part 1: Amnesty for Illegals With ‘Unaccompanied Minors’

ICE will surely be handcuffed.



In the early hours of the morning, Congress delivered an absolute dud of a spending bill in order to keep the largely-useless federal government open at the expense of people who fund it.

As noted by Jessica Vaughan of the Center for Immigration Studies, the bill will hamper the ability for the Department of Homeland Security, and thus Immigration and Customs Enforcement, to remove illegal aliens from the United States.

“None of the funds provided by this Act… may be used by the Secretary of Homeland Security to place in detention, remove, refer for a decision whether to initiate removal proceedings, or initiate removal proceedings against a sponsor, potential sponsor, or member of a household of a sponsor of an unaccompanied alien child…” said section 224(a) of the bill.

Basically, if an illegal adult accompanies an illegal minor, this bill would prevent the removal of the adult. Human smugglers (and Democrats in Congress) should love this section of the bill. It grants amnesty to anyone even tangentially related to an illegal minor.

Many of the border security objectives touted by President Donald J. Trump will not be addressed as this bill is written. This is but one small section of an abomination of a spending bill, which is expected to be sent to Trump’s desk Thursday evening.

As usual, Congress shows that it has no interest in adhering to the wishes of the American people.
