Border Experts: The Biden Plan Will Bring Another 2 Million People into the Country Every Year

(The Center Square) – Former border security leaders who served under multiple presidents and whose careers span decades in law enforcement say President Joe Biden’s announcement on “border security” Tuesday will not secure the border but will instead increase illegal immigration facilitate, which will bring in two more. million people enter the country illegally each year.

“The border will never be ‘closed’ under this executive action, but rather will serve to legalize an unwarranted level of open borders that will further perpetuate the chaos and lawlessness we have experienced throughout the Biden administration,” he said. the former US border guard. Chef Mark Morgan told The Center Square. “At a minimum, the proposed action will allow more than one million illegal aliens to be released into the county each year, along with another million inadmissible aliens allowed to fly into U.S. domestic airports,” referring to the CBP One- app that allows migrants to request access remotely.

Biden said that through his executive action, “Migrants will not be allowed to receive asylum unless they apply for it through an established lawful process, making an appointment through a port of entry,” he said, referring to the CBP One app.

Multiple attorneys general have filed a lawsuit to prevent the app from being used, arguing that it circumvents laws established by Congress and creates an “illegal visa program.”

The president’s executive action in no way secures the border, Morgan said. “It doesn’t end with catch and release; it does not end the unlawful use of parole; it does not increase domestic enforcement; it does not eliminate the significant loopholes exploited by the cartels, and it does not provide additional resources for U.S. Customs and Border Protection to secure, defend, and protect our nation’s borders.

Morgan has raised alarms about known or suspected terrorists (KSTs) coming through the southwestern and northern borders, something Biden’s executive action does not address.

Biden’s action only applies to the southwest border, not the northern border, which is seeing record numbers of illegal entries and the highest number of KSTs apprehended in the country, The Center Square reported.

Asylum restrictions will take effect when “a large number of encounters at the southern border exceed our ability to draw timely consequences,” according to Biden’s plan.

The number of KSTs apprehended at the northern border continues to exceed those apprehended at the southwest border, and record numbers of illegal border crossers entering the northern border continue to be reported, The Center Square reported.

“Cartels are expanding their operations and flying people to Canada, which does not require a visa, providing an opportunity for terrorist-listed individuals to exploit. It’s much easier to come across Canada,” Morgan told The Center Square. “39 months of data show that people on the terrorist watch list come here every day and they don’t stop.”

Tom Homan, acting director of Immigration and Customs Enforcement in the Trump administration, asked why the president took action after years of saying the border is secure.

“Why is he taking action?” he told The Center Square. “He and the DHS Secretary (Alejandro Mayorkas) have been claiming for three years that the border is secure.”

Mayorkas repeatedly testified before Congress that his agency had operational control and that the border was secure, a claim for which he was impeached in February.

Homan said that if Biden really wants to be reelected as president and respond to the outrage Americans are expressing about Biden’s border policies, he would close the border and “end this action.”

But the president and his administration “want open borders,” he said, repeating what he has said before: President Biden is the only president in U.S. history who has “intentionally unlocked the border.” …and has created the greatest national security crisis since September 11.”

The record numbers of KSTs crossing the border, the cartel and gang crime sweeping American cities, “this is all by design,” Homan said. “This government is not fooling anyone. Everyone on the Hill knows it, but the Democrats are playing along with the lie. This is a shameful political move just before the elections.”

Former U.S. Border Patrol Chief Rodney Scott also took issue with the claim that Biden’s plan would reportedly limit illegal entries to 2,500 per day, calling it “political theater.”

“Immigration policies that allow current lawlessness to continue will not deter foreigners from entering our country illegally,” Scott said. “If we cannot control who and what enters our national home, any sense of security is a facade.”

The Biden plan’s restrictions have exceptions, just like the daily limits in the Senate bill. The Senate bill, which Biden said was the strongest bill in the country, did not get a hearing in the Senate and went nowhere. Exceptions to the immigration limits included families and unaccompanied minors who are not Canadian or Mexican citizens, meaning people from all over the world would be allowed in, which is the current policy, The Center Square reported.

“Anyone who is remotely intellectually honest knows that five months before the election, this is not a serious and meaningful action the president is taking to secure our borders,” Morgan said. “It’s a political stunt.”
