Biden to Announce Asylum Restrictions and Border Closures That Will Never Be Implemented
People have been screaming at Joe Biden to "do something about the border" for two years. Biden now wants us to think he's heeding that cry for action and will take drastic measures to curtail the chaos at the Southern border.
The only problem is that the federal courts will never let him implement any of these changes because his open-border allies are going to sue the pants off of the president.
In theory, the executive order expected to be published today would drastically limit border crossings and shut down the border to asylum seekers once 2,500 asylum requests per day were made. We're at that point now but no one expects Biden to close the border to asylum seekers for more than a day or two, if at all.
The border would reopen once the number of asylum seekers went down to 1,500.
Naturally, there will be exceptions to the new executive order. Children will be allowed to claim asylum, as will those suffering a medical emergency and victims of human trafficking.
“While congressional Republicans chose to stand in the way of additional border enforcement, President Biden will not stop fighting to deliver the resources that border and immigration personnel need to secure our border,” Angelo Fernández Hernández, a White House spokesman, said in a statement on Monday. He added that the administration was looking into “a series of policy options, and we remain committed to taking action to address our broken immigration system.”
Pay no attention to the first three years of the Biden presidency. We didn't really mean all that open borders stuff. --->READ MORE HERE
Republicans slam Biden border crackdown order as ‘political stunt,’ as Dem Texas mayor says it’s months too late:
President Biden is set Tuesday to unveil an executive order that will allow him to shut down the US-Mexico border when migrant crossings reach a certain number per day, but critics argued Monday that it is too little, too late.
The order would bar illegal border-crossers from claiming asylum when migrant encounters between ports of entry reach a daily mean of 2,500 over the course of a week, according to the Associated Press.
The border would reopen when the number of such encounters decline to 1,500 per day.
Biden, 81, has reportedly been mulling executive action on the border since February, despite denying the insistence of congressional Republicans that he always had that power.
The president is expected to sign the order at a White House ceremony Tuesday with some border city mayors by his side.
Eagle Pass, Texas, Mayor Rolando Salinas, whose town has been overwhelmed by the migrant crisis, told The Post he was not invited to the White House event despite his strong support of “any measure that prevents and limits the amounts of people coming into our city illegally.”
“I just wish this was done back in December, when our city was being hit with 2,000-3,000 people per day,” he said of the executive order. “We won’t forget those days.”
Law enforcement authorities encountered more than 370,000 people attempting to cross the US-Mexico border in December 2023, the highest monthly total on record — and a figure that doesn’t include so-called “gotaways” who managed to escape detection and apprehension.
Border Patrol sources told The Post Monday that they were being kept in the dark about Biden’s planned order and have yet to be briefed on its specifics. --->READ MORE HERE
