In the latest shocking reversal of a Trump policy, Biden is allowing 25,000 “migrants” who were captured crossing the border as illegal aliens and returned to Mexico to now enter the United States.
“Homeland Security will allow tens of thousands of migrants blocked by the Trump administration from jumping the border to enter the U.S. starting next week, erasing the brunt of a policy that had helped solve the last border surge,” according to The Washington Times. [emphasis added]
“The migrants are part of the Migration Protection Protocols, more commonly referred to as the “remain in Mexico” policy, which allowed border authorities who encountered illegal entrants to process and return them to Mexico to await their immigration court dates.
“MPP had the effect of denying would-be illegal immigrants a foothold in the U.S., which sapped the incentive for people to make the attempt during the 2019 surge.
“But the Biden administration has called the program a stain on America’s immigrant legacy, and immigrant-rights groups say people have been victimized while waiting in Mexico.
“Some 25,000 people with active cases who are believed to be currently in Mexico will be admitted and granted that foothold in the U.S. while they await their cases. The program will begin admissions on Feb. 19.” [emphasis added]
