President Donald Trump has started deporting unaccompanied minors found trying to illegally cross the U.S. border in order to stop the spread of coronavirus, and liberals are enraged as a result.
The administration is enforcing a March 20 order issued by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), which states that no unauthorized individual could cross the border during the coronavirus pandemic.
The US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) has confirmed that the CDC policy is being applied to migrant children at the border, according to BuzzFeed News.
“All aliens CBP encounters may be subject to the CDC’s Order Suspending Introduction Of Persons From A Country Where A Communicable Disease Exists (March 20, 2020), including minors,” a CBP official told BuzzFeed News in a statement.
“When minors are encountered without adult family members, CBP works closely with their home countries to transfer them to the custody of government officials and reunite them with their families quickly and safely, if possible,” they added.
Left-wing activists who support the migrant trafficking industry are up in arms that the Trump administration is actually enforcing the law and putting Americans first during an unprecedented pandemic.
“Children arriving at the border, many of whom have endured unimaginable harm at home and on their journey, are the most vulnerable group encountered by border officials. Unaccompanied children are particularly vulnerable to trafficking,” said Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, a policy analyst at the American Immigration Council. “The answer to coronavirus cannot be to put children in harm’s way.”
Eleanor Acer, who works as the refugee protection director for Human Rights First, said that the Trump administration is “using” the coronavirus pandemic as an excuse “to advance their long-standing goal of overturning US laws protecting vulnerable children and people seeking asylum.”
During the crisis, the number of referrals for unaccompanied minors who arrive illegally into the U.S. has dropped precipitously. Referrals from Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have dropped 78 percent over the past month, with only four unaccompanied minor aliens being funneled toward the US refugee agency on Sunday.
“This is a drastic drop in referrals, especially compared to 2019, when well over a hundred unaccompanied children were referred to ORR each day,” said Sarah Pierce, an analyst with the Migration Policy Institute.
“While it likely reflects decreased arrivals at the southern border, it also suggests that many are being refused entry, in direct contravention of federal law,” she added.
The administration’s opponents claim that the President is not following the Trafficking Victims Protection Reauthorization Act (TVPRA), a law that was signed by former President George W. Bush in 2008 that allows illegals to flood the border.
“Reports that DHS is not following the TVPRA are deeply troubling,” wrote Sens. Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Dick Durbin (D-IL), along with Reps. Jerrold Nadler (D-NY) and Zoe Lofgren (D-CA), in a letter issued to acting DHS Secretary Chad Wolf.
“We have an obligation to ensure the health and safety of these children. Children do not have to be put in harm’s way to protect us from the coronavirus pandemic. DHS has the ability and capacity to protect both these children and the public. We request that DHS stop this practice immediately,” they added.
Even during a coronavirus crisis, the far-left Democrats are still refusing to shut down the border even if it means the pandemic will worsen as a direct result.
Border Migrants Demand Biden Grant Amnesty – Wearing Biden Campaign Shirts!
This is America Last.
Asylum seekers demonstrated at the San Ysidro border crossing south of California on Wednesday, urging Joe Biden to provide them with immigration amnesty. The migrants were wearing Joe Biden campaign shirts, in a nod to Biden’s pledges to grant amnesty and citizenship to illegal immigrants.
The Biden administration has already suspended President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” asylum policy, in which economic migrants trying to game the US immigration system were required to wait adjudication of their cases in Mexico. This prevented rampant immigration fraud, with migrants frequently going missing after lodging their initial claim in the court system.
Biden has already admitted thousands of migrants waiting to enter the US under the Remain in Mexico policy, but the pace he’s moving at is insufficient for the tens of thousands of people waiting at the border. One of the migrants in Biden’s campaign shirts admitted she had come to the border for economic purposes. “What I want is to enter (the United States) and to be given the opportunity for my son to study, to move on.” Low quality of education systems in an applicant’s country is not accepted as a valid claim to asylum in the United States.
Biden has a strong constituency of support with illegal immigrants, who form a strong majority of the economic migrants who cross the southern border and are ultimately deported. However, under Biden’s “America Last” approach of open borders, it’s likely that the migrants will ultimately be granted residency, welfare, and possibly more if they’re granted asylee status.
Biden administration officials have denied the existence of a ‘crisis’ at the border, even with Customs and Border Patrol officials projecting that over 100,000 illegal alien minors will reach the border in May alone, hoping to take advantage of Biden’s open borders and globalist policies.
Under America Last, the interests of citizens are no longer the ultimate priority.
