Several reports in the past week have exposed just how bad the border crisis is under Joe Biden — and it is worse than most people may have thought.
Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced this week that the Biden administration is opening new doors for migrants to come to America.
“For years, the asylum system has been badly in need of reengineering,” said the statement by Mayorkas.
In addition to improving the process by which unaccompanied children are placed with family or sponsors, we will be issuing a new regulation shortly and taking other measures to implement the long-needed systemic reforms. We will shorten from years to months the time it takes to adjudicate an asylum claim while ensuring procedural safeguards and enhancing access to counsel.
Mayorkas is a lawyer and also a strong supporter of the unpopular claim the United States is a “Nation of Immigrants,” not of Americans. So he can argue his immigration expansion plans complies with the nation’s complex and loopholed immigration law, major parts of which have been written by agency regulators and pro-migration judges. Mayorkas wrote:
We are keeping our borders secure, enforcing our laws, and staying true to our values and principles …
I came to this country as an infant, brought by parents who understood the hope and promise of America. Today, young children are arriving at our border with that same hope. We can do this.
Mayorkas is trying to help many more migrants win claims for asylum by allowing them to seek asylum from routine poverty, political corruption, and street crime commonplace in many countries outside the United States.
He’s also exploiting the 2008 Trafficking Victims Protection Act — a bill passed in the Obama-era by Congress that helps minors who were smuggled into the United States for crimes, such as prostitution.
But the Biden administration is using this law to help illegal immigrants into the country with their children who were left behind in Mexico.
So, under this atrocious rule, the parents come to the border, they get in, get to stay, and then their kids will be able to come to America, too.
And guess what? YOU — the taxpayer — will be footing the bill for this.
Mayorkas is also allying with pro-migration international groups and private groups to help them deliver more wage-cutting, rent-raising migrants into Americans’ blue-collar labor market.
Mayorkas wants to provide lawyers so unskilled and poor economic migrants get elite help as they try to migrate into Americans’ jobs, housing, and schools.
A new report from CNN on Monday revealed that children detained in an overcrowded government-run tent facility at the US-Mexico border say they haven’t been able to shower for days or contact their parents.
Some children get to shower about once a week and sometimes soap runs out, with only shampoo available, she said. One child told Welch she hadn’t showered in six days.
Things are so bad that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is asking DHS staff to “volunteer” to help deal with what he conceded was an “overwhelming” number of migrants at the border.
Imagine how bad things could be in two months or even a year from now.
