America is experiencing historic levels of illegal immigration.
But Democrats are encouraging the problem.
Joe Biden made a huge change that is making the border crisis even worse.
The Biden administration doesn’t even give an estimate on illegal immigration numbers.
Last month when Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was asked he couldn’t even give a “ballpark” estimate on how many of the 1.3 million illegal immigrants apprehended at the border this year are being held and how many had been released.
Yet he insisted that the border was not open.
However Mayorkas himself proved his own hypocrisy when on Thursday he issued new guidance to Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents.
He is now restricting deportations on the basis of one’s immigration status.
Mayorkas told ICE agents in a memo that whether an immigrant is in the United States legally or not “should not alone be the basis” for deportation, according to The Washington Post. “The overriding question is whether the noncitizen poses a current threat to public safety,” the memo said.
“[W]hether a noncitizen poses a current threat to public safety is not to be determined according to bright lines or categories,” the memo said. “It instead requires an assessment of the individual and the totality of the facts and circumstances.”
The new order is expected to take effect around November 29.
In other words Biden won’t stop people from entering the country illegally and once they enter the country he won’t deport them.
The Department of Homeland Security secretary said that ICE agents won’t arrest people for breaking America’s laws by illegally entering the country as, like what was allowed under the Trump administration. And that only illegal immigrants who are a threat to the U.S. and those who have recently entered the country illegally will be deported, he said.
“Are we going to spend the time apprehending and removing the farmworker who is breaking his or her back to pick fruit that we all put on our tables?” Mayorkas told the Post. “Because if we pursue that individual, we will not be spending those same resources on somebody who does, in fact, threaten our safety. And that is what this is about.”
There are specific visas that are designed to help farmers hire temporary agricultural workers. If the problem was just that more farm workers’ were needed President Joe Biden could easily just increase the number of visas for legal farm workers.
But only a small minority of illegal immigrants work as farm labor.
It’s just a poor excuse. The Democrats are letting people in, not because of the labor that they’re doing, but because they see them as future voters.
