The Biden regime’s disastrous immigration policies have caused chaos at the border. In Biden’s first year in office, he shattered records for overseeing the most amount of illegal immigrants apprehended at the border in recorded history. The migration crisis under his administration was created by design.
When Biden took office, he issued a 100-day halt on deportations, stopped construction of Trump’s border wall, and ended the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy that forced asylum applicants to stay in Mexico while their applications were being processed.
During the pandemic, the Trump administration enacted Title 42, which allows the Border Patrol to prohibit the entry of migrants who come from countries where there is an ongoing pandemic. Biden appears ready to lift Title 42 which will worsen his manufactured immigration crisis. Yesterday, Obama’s Secretary of Homeland Security, Jeh Johnson, discussed the dire situation at the border and opposed Biden’s decision to lift Title 42.
“On Tuesday’s broadcast of the Fox News Channel’s “Fox & Friends,” former DHS Secretary Jeh Johnson argued that having 7,000 people come to the border each day is unsustainable because “It overwhelms the communities in Texas and Arizona that have to absorb this population. It overwhelms Catholic Charities. It overwhelms the Border Patrol and ICE” and that if he had his way, he would push to delay lifting Title 42 until later in the summer when the number of people attempting to enter the U.S. declines due to hotter weather.
Johnson said, “I am convinced that most Americans want us to treat migrants in this country fairly, humanely. They want us to take care of the DREAMers, who are a remarkable group of de facto Americans who grew up in this country. Most Americans, I believe, want to give people who have been in this country for ten or more years an opportunity to get on the books.
But most Americans also want a secure border. If you go to Laredo, TX, for example, Henry Cuellar’s district, 85% Mexican American, overwhelmingly Democratic, they want a secure border. I know. I’ve been there. I’ve heard this. 7,000 a day is not sustainable, in multiple respects.”
