The Biden administration has begun to panic about Title 42 ending, the program that allowed the U.S. Government to immediately deport more than 60% of illegal aliens crossing the border.
Title 42 will be lifted on May 11, the same day that the government lifts its public health emergency. The Biden administration is already implementing several policies that were created by the Trump Administration, such as the “Remain in Mexico’ policy and the rule stating that anyone who enters the U.S. illegally after crossing the border through a third country without applying for asylum would be deported immediately and will not be allowed to reenter the country for five years.
Secretary of State Anthony Blinken and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas conducted a press briefing on Wednesday to discuss the other measures the administration plans to take in order to cope with the anticipated influx of illegals attempting to cross the border. HHS estimates that between 10,000-13,000 illegals are expected to attempt to cross the border, which is triple the number of illegals who crossed the border in March.
“We work with our regional partners, we are pursuing smugglers and rushing resources to the border.” “But we can’t do everything we need until Congress provides resources and reforms,” Mayorkas stated.
The administration plans on setting up processing centers in Latin America to ease the legal entry of certain asylum seekers.
According to CBS News:
CBS News reported that illegal border crossings had already increased prior to the new policy, particularly in Texas’s Rio Grande Valley. The official stated that Border Patrol recorded 7,500 migrant apprehensions on Tuesday, which is a 40% increase over the daily average of March.
On Thursday the brick-and-mortar processing centers announced they will act as regional hubs for screening migrants to determine if they are eligible for different options for entering the U.S. legally, such as through traditional refugee resettlement programs, family visas, sponsorship initiatives for certain countries, and temporary work visas.
The centers will be located at key transit points in Latin America, such as Colombia and Guatemala. Many migrants use these areas to reach the southern border of the United States. Senior administration officials stated that the U.S. was “in talks” with other countries about expanding the number of processing centers.
The numbers are staggering, even with Trump’s policies. Biden will revive Trump’s other programs for illegal alien families.
In planning for the end of Title 42, U.S. officials are considering reinstating the controversial practice of holding some migrant family members with children in detention centers, a policy that was discontinued by the Biden administration in 2021.
In an interview with CBS News last week, Alejandro Mayorkas, the Secretary of Homeland Security said that “no decisions” had been made on whether the practice would be revived.
Mayorkas stated in a press conference on Thursday that the administration has “no plans to detain family members”.
Biden must be dying to implement these policies after he won the presidency in 2020. He ran and portrayed Donald Trump as a heartless creature. Now that he is on the other side, he looks at things a little differently. He’s facing a human tsunami of desperate people who are looking for help in our already struggling country.
