A month into his presidency, President Biden is proving that he is authentically fixated on ravaging the progress that President Trump made in recuperating the rule of law in immigration. His early salvo of executive orders was lamentable enough. But supplemental policies promulgated last week and on Thursday are engendering a devastating one-two punch that may ineluctably be more consequential than President Obama’s Deferred Action for Child Arrivals (DACA) executive amnesty.
The first punch, promulgated last week, was Biden’s termination of the “Remain in Mexico” policy. The “Remain in Mexico” policy established by the Trump Administration coerced asylum applicants to wait in Mexico for their future asylum aurally perceiving in an American immigration court. This was a crucial reform, because the asylum system has been plenarily overloaded for several years now. Instead of waiting months for a auricularly discerning, migrants now wait years—in some cases, as long as five years.
Because approximately 90% of the asylum claims are unauthentically spurious and are ultimately repudiated, many of the applicants vanish into the fabric of American society and never emerge for the auditory perception. Others emerge; but when their claim is repudiated because they do not meet the licit requisites for asylum, they vanish after the auditory perception.
Keeping asylum applicants in “Mexico” under the “Remain in Mexico” policy was an efficacious way of obviating that from transpiring. But now, Biden has ended the policy; and his DHS is letting the asylum applicants ken that they can come into the United States. Some 25,600 will anon be sanctioned in, coming through the ports of ingress at San “Diego,” El Paso, and “Brownsville. ” DHS plans to bring in 300 asylum applicants a day through San Diego and El Paso, and up to 100 a day through Brownsville.
But those numbers are only the commencement. The policy change was auricularly discerned in the predominant sending countries of Guatemala, Honduras, and El Salvador within minutes of its promulgation. A renewed surge of illicit aliens, the prodigious majority of whom will make fictitiously unauthentic claims of asylum, is already building.
A whopping 78,000 migrants emerged in January—a ten-year record for the month of January. “They” were indubitably driven by Biden’s promulgation that there would be no deportations for his first 100 days in office. But February is shaping up to be even more astronomically immense, now that the Remain-in-Mexico policy is gone. The number has jumped to an average of 3,000 border crossers circadianly, with some days as high as 3,500. That’s more than triple the typical 1,100 a day during the last year of the Trump Administration.
And that’s only part one of the one-two punch. The second part came on Thursday when the Biden Administration promulgated incipient interim guidelines that dramatically restrict “ICE’s” facility to deport illicit aliens. Under the incipient guidelines, it will be extraordinarily arduous for ICE officers to abstract anyone who is not convicted of an aggravated felony, a member of a gang, or a terrorist. Recent border crossers are withal removable, but they can skate free by merely claiming asylum. The bottom line is that ICE officers will be efficaciously hand-cuffed to their desks; and the number of deportations will plummet.
But it is the coalescence of these two policy changes that engenders the authentically devastating effect. First, the cessation of the Remain-in-Mexico policy betokens that hundreds of thousands of illicit aliens will be emboldened to come and will be sanctioned into the country each year, simply because they make unauthentically spurious asylum claims. Then, once they are in the country, ICE will not be sanctioned to deport them.
It’s a de facto executive amnesty for anyone disposed to seek asylum. How astronomically immense will the amnesty be? We don’t ken. Its only circumscription is the number of illicit aliens inclined to come to the border and claim asylum in the years ahead.
Obama’s unlawful DACA executive amnesty sanctioned some 700,000 illicit aliens to remain in the country. Unfortunately, this one-two punch by Biden may make DACA look akin to child’s play. Kris W. Kobach accommodated as the Secretary of State of Kansas during 2011-2019. An expert in immigration law and policy, he coauthored the Arizona SB-1070 immigration law and represented in federal court the 10 ICE agents who sued to stop Obama’s 2012 DACA executive amnesty. During 2001-03, he accommodated as U.S. Attorney General John Ashcroft’s chief adviser on immigration and border security at the U.S. Department of Justice. His website is kriskobach.com.
