Several crises have cropped up thanks to Joe Biden’s faulty leadership.
Few, however, have been worse than the issue on the southern border.
And Biden’s new policy is about to explode the border crisis.
Donald Trump was working to get the border crisis under control, but Joe Biden has done the opposite.
As soon as he took office, he reversed policies that helped stem the tide of illegal immigration and bogus asylum claims.
Now, the Biden administration is lifting Title 42—a regulation that allowed border agents to turn away migrants on public health grounds due to COVID—which will make the illegal immigration problem worse.
Fox News reported that “President Trump started using Title 42 at the beginning of the pandemic to turn back migrants before they could claim asylum, and Mr. Biden has continued the practice. Border Patrol agents are giving priority to removing foreigners under Title 42…Those who can’t be quickly expelled may be sent back to Mexico under the newly restarted Remain in Mexico to wait outside the country for their court hearings.”
Biden initially killed the “Remain in Mexico” agreement that Trump brokered with President Andrés Manuel López Obrador, but he begrudgingly reinstated it after an unwieldy surge of migrants at the border.
The Biden administration will likely attempt to deep-six “Remain in Mexico” again if they can do so without spurring another scandalous border crisis.
Biden and all of his challengers during the Democratic Primary intimated they were in favor of universal healthcare for illegal aliens.
That type of rhetoric causes migrants to make the dangerous trek north, which in many cases leads to death and despair.
A recent border surge became a calamity for the Biden administration.
Thousands of Haitian migrants descended on Del Rio, Texas, overwhelmingly local authorities who were ill-equipped to handle the giant influx of people.
Mounted border patrol agents were falsely accused of whipping Haitian migrants with their reins.
Congresswoman Maxine Waters even had the audacity to say that the images were worse than slavery.
Even though the story was untrue, the horseback unit was disbanded.
What is true is that “catch and release” is effectively back in place.
Fox News added that “Border Patrol agents released about 402,000 migrants last year into the U.S., roughly one-fifth of the total arrested for crossing into the U.S. illegally, and allowed them to stay in the U.S. until their immigration cases are decided…Most of the rest, a little over 1 million, were sent back to Mexico or their home countries under Title 42.”
Over 90% of asylum cases are bogus; most people coming into the country are economic migrants.
That is why many never bother to show up to their asylum hearing and simply stay in the United States illegally.
With Title 42 gone, expect “catch and release” to get even worse.
