So far, the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy has been a success.
The number of Central American migrants applying for asylum has dropped considerably because of how asylum seekers must now wait in Mexico for their cases to be heard instead of being released into the U.S.
While the wave of asylum seekers from Guatemala, Honduras, and Nicaragua have fallen, Mexican nationals have replaced them. Many of these Mexican asylum seekers are claiming that cartel violence is getting worse and they are fleeing in fear for their lives.
Regardless of their reasoning, Mexicans now comprise half of asylum seekers at the southern border according to a report from PJ Media. Given that Mexicans are not subject to the “Remain in Mexico” policy, the Trump administration has had to tackle this matter in a unique way.
American authorities are now using a policy known as “metering”, which admits relatively small numbers of Mexican asylum seekers on a daily basis. Ken Cuccinelli, the acting deputy secretary of the Department of Homeland Security, declared that Mexican nationals requesting asylum in America could be moved to Guatemala instead of being allowed to wait in the United States for their asylum claim to be processed.
Whatever policy the Trump administration pursues, it’s very likely it will be challenged in court.
The White House is currently bogged down in court battles over policies limiting the flow of asylum seekers, which include requiring the migrants to first apply for refugee status in Mexico, or whatever country they decide to enter after they leave their country of origin, before requesting asylum in America.
The Ninth Circuit is currently considering arguments dealing with the constitutionality of the orders, after the Supreme Court ruled back in September that the remain in Mexico policy can stay in place as legal challenges progress
Last year more than 300,000 Central Americans arrived in Mexico illegally, with 80 percent of them heading to the U.S. border, according to Mexico’s interior minister, Olga Sánchez Cordero.
Former acting DHS secretary Kevin McAleenan stated last August that border crossings went down over the summer, with apprehensions falling 43 percent since May. Last May, arrests between ports of entry at the southern border rose for the fourth consecutive month to 132,887.
Although these are solid ways to stem the flow of the current mass migration waves afflicting the U.S., there will need to be more solid reform such as the construction of a wall and the abolition of certain migration magnets such as birthright citizenship and chain migration.
The immigration crisis America is facing is filled with tremendous political implications. Not addressing these matters head on will put the American nation-state on the brink of collapse and potentially usher in an era of globalist government — a far cry from what the Founding Fathers had in mind for this country.
As the U.S. Elections Approaches, Thousands of Immigrants are Gaining U.S. Citizenship
America’s foreign voter base continues to grow ahead of the 2020 presidential election.
John Binder of Breitbart News noted that this is “adding a bloc of first-time foreign-born voters to the electorate.”
The last few months has seen delays in naturalization ceremonies thanks to the Wuhan virus pandemic. As of June, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency restarted ceremonies, with 2,000 immigrants being naturalized according to a report published by Camila DeChalus on June 10.
Other immigrants, who were expected to receive citizenship in 2020, are now pressing legal action against the federal government.
Prior to the crisis, USICS was naturalizing immigrants to the tune of 60,000 monthly.
Binder broke down the overall legal migration numbers:
Legal immigration levels — where 1.2 million immigrants secure Green Cards and nearly a million obtain naturalized citizenship annually — has driven up the nation’s foreign-born voting population to record levels.
The Breitbart writer highlighted another demographic trend that is taking place across America:
In February, Pew Research Center revealed that for the first time since 1970, one-in-ten U.S. voters will have been born outside the country in the 2020 election. High legal immigration levels have also ensured that Hispanic voters will replace black Americans as the largest voting minority for the first time in U.S. history.
According to research from The Atlantic, the New York Times, and Axios, Democrats tend to benefit from an increased foreign-born population.
Binder gave an overview about what these foreign voter numbers look like:
The Atlantic‘s Ronald Brownstein reveals nearly 90 percent of House congressional districts with a foreign-born population above the national average are won by Democrats. This means every congressional district with a foreign-born population exceeding 14 percent has a 90 percent chance of electing Democrats and only a ten percent chance of electing a Republican.
Exit polling data indicated that Trump won 49 percent of native-born Americans’ votes, whereas Clinton won 45 percent of the vote. As far as foreign voters were concerned, Clinton trounced Trump by raking in 64 percent of the immigrant vote, while Trump got only 31 percent.
At the moment, the Binder points out that the “U.S. is on track to import about 15 million new foreign-born voters in the next two decades due to existing legal immigration levels.”
Those 15 million new foreign-born voters include about eight million who will arrive through chain migration, where newly naturalized citizens can bring an unlimited number of foreign relatives to the country.
The U.S. is undergoing a massive demographic transformation thanks to public policy.
In previous eras, migration waves would at least be contained by legislative pauses that allowed for assimilation.
But now, elites are content by keeping the illegal and legal migration gravy train going without any pause in sight.
Given immigrant voting trends, many freedoms such as the right to bear arms and free speech could be in jeopardy thanks to Democrats gaining a new voting bloc that will help them stay in power for a long time.
