Joe Biden is pledging only to deport illegal aliens who are convicted of felony crimes in the United States as President, creating a de facto deportation moratorium for the majority of illegal aliens who manage to avoid involvement with the US justice system.
He made the pledge on a Thursday interview with Univision, and the proposal is easily the most radical far-left immigration policy Biden has ever stood for. (9:30)
Biden made the pledge in conjunction with a promise to suspend all deportations from the United States within his first hundred days in office. He described the deportation moratorium for anyone except felons in distinct terms, suggesting that he would not deport anyone other than those convicted of felonies throughout his entire presidency.
“There are going to be no deportations in the first 100 days of my [administration] … freeze deportations for the first 100 days and the only people who will be deported are people who committed a felony while here,” said the former Vice President. The policy would even seem to exempt recent illegal alien border crossers and visa overstayers from immigration enforcement, truly creating a de facto environment of open borders.
President Obama promoted the idea of only deporting felony criminals during his time in office, suggesting that immigration enforcement should ignore people who merely break American immigration law.
In the interview, Biden also pledges to provide a form of amnesty for the massive population of anywhere between 11 and 22 million illegal immigrants currently present in the United States, permanently destroying the integrity of American immigration law and providing and eventual path to citizenship for a massive population of people who have broken it.
Joe Biden’s immigration policy would fundamentally destroy the enforcement of existing American immigration law, and open up our borders as a free zone for whoever wishes to come from throughout the world.
Joe Biden’s DHS Nominee: I Will Stop Construction of Border Wall
Also says he’s not sure what to do with the amount of wall already built.
Joe Biden’s pick to be secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), Alejandro Mayorkas, has said that he would attempt to stop construction of the US-Mexico border wall if the Senate confirms him to his post.
“President-elect Biden has committed to stop construction of the border wall. It would be my responsibility to execute on that commitment, and I have not looked at the question of what we do with respect to the wall that already has been built,” Mayorkas said before the Senate Homeland Security Committee at his confirmation hearing Tuesday.
Senator Josh Hawley, who announced his intention to object to a quick confirmation of Mayorkas, pointed out that Congress approved $1.4 billion in additional wall funds in December, meaning that Mayorkas simply cannot refuse to keep building the wall.
Mayorkas said in response: “What I would need to do is to understand what the law provides with respect to the obligation of funds to construct the border wall and see what the opportunities are to discontinue any such obligations if in fact the law permits.”
Hawley stated that his objection to Mayorkas’ quick confirmation lies in his failure to adequately explain “how he will enforce federal law and secure the southern border given President-elect Biden’s promise to roll back major enforcement and security measures.”
Big League Politics has written about Mayorkas before. When Biden first nominated him, we recalled his oversight of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) at a time of record-breaking immigration levels and his eagerness to rubber-stamp green card and visa worker applications. We also reported on Senator Tom Cotton’s statement back in November that he would vote against Mayorkas’ confirmation.
As it stands, however, Mayorkas will be confirmed even if every Republican voted “no” and every Democrat voted “yes,” for Vice President-elect Kamala Harris holds the tiebreaking vote.
Brace yourselves for the Biden administration’s all-out assault against President Trump’s immigration policies.
