The Biden administration has been a trainwreck on so many levels.
That’s why Joe Biden’s approval numbers are so bad.
And Biden did something unthinkable to make one crisis worse.
Joe Biden’s handling of the southern border has perhaps been his biggest failing.
As soon as Biden got into office, he reversed all of Donald Trump’s effective border policies that were in place.
The result has been record-high levels of illegal immigration into the country.
One initiative that Biden scrapped upon entering the White House was the Department of Homeland Security 287(g) program, which allows immigration enforcement agencies to coordinate with local law enforcement to apprehend illegal alien child rapists, attempted murderers, robbers, and other known criminals.
In August 2023, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) reported that the Biden administration ended 287(g) in January 2021, i.e. as soon as Biden was inaugurated.
The Immigration Reform Law Institute (IRLI) sued Biden’s DHS to get answers as to why 287(g) was nixed but has been given no reason.
IRLI also filed a FOIA request with ICE in September 2023 to get documents related to the suspension of 287(g), but the group was stonewalled.
ICE was supposed to respond to the FOIA request within 20 days, but the agency has yet to do so.
IRLI Director of Investigations Matt O’Brien said, “It is ironic that the Biden administration insists it is ‘the most transparent in history’ when, in reality, it has repeatedly attempted to change immigration laws without congressional authorization and then tried to hide the evidence of its misdeeds from the American public.”
It’s quite telling that the Democrats are so determined to keep the southern border as porous as possible.
IRLI Executive Director Dale Wilcox said in a statement, “Increased cooperation between ICE and local law enforcement is critical and makes our communities safer, so of course, this administration wants to limit that effort…There is no benefit to this country or its legal residents by keeping criminal aliens in the country, yet it appears to be a priority of the White House. The American people own those emails, yet we are not allowed to see them because it might embarrass this administration and expose their extremist agenda.”
Establishment Republicans are fine with illegal immigration because of the cheap labor, and Democrats want to import new voters.
That’s why Permanent Washington refuses to stop the growing migrant crisis.
