Biden Released 6,400 ‘Remain in Mexico’ Immigrants Into U.S.

In his first few days in office, President Biden removed the Remain in Mexico policy

The Biden administration has reportedly released more than 6,400 illegal immigrants into the United States that were enrolled in the “Remain in Mexico” policy, which was removed by President Biden.

“Internal data reviewed by Breitbart News reveals that as of April 10, the Biden administration had released more than 6,400 “Remain in Mexico” migrants into the U.S. interior,” Breitbart News reported.

“As of February, of the more than 71,000 asylum cases under Remain in Mexico, less than one percent of foreign nationals were found to have a legitimate asylum claim,” Breitbart News added.

In his first few days in office, President Biden removed the Remain in Mexico policy, which required asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while they waited for their U.S. court hearings. The policy was just one of many border security policies quickly removed by the Biden administration, including an emergency declaration that allowed for more funding to be allocated towards border security.

As he removed border security policies, President Biden seemingly decided that the United States could not possibly have a border security problem if it did not have a border, with his administration reportedly releasing illegal immigrants into the interior of the United States without a court date.

During his Democrat presidential nominee acceptance speech, President Biden promised migrants that the United States would be their “safe haven.” In practice, it seems his promise was only to adult illegal immigrants, while the vulnerable child migrants have been kept illegally in inhumane conditions, described by the New York Times as “akin to jails.”

According to the BBC, “thousands of children who are being kept in government-run detention facilities that critics say are inhumane. Almost 3,000 children have been kept for over 72 hours, the legal limit after which they are meant to be transferred to the custody of health officials in the Office of Refugee Resettlement (ORR).”

  1. Reality Check

    April 14, 2021 at 1:27 pm

    We have the largest deficit ever and it will continue to climb once the democrats pass the 2 trillion infrastructure bill, which only 30% is going to infrastructure – no surprise there. We must shut our borders, these people being released into our society without being tested for COVID, they have no means of support, they cannot afford housing or food. Close our borders and support our citizens, we need jobs, we need to be put FIRST because it is the citizens that end up paying for the deficit with added taxes. Go back to Trumps’ closed border policy, it worked. March 2021 171,000 people crossed our borders, this is outrageous. Let the democrats house & feed them.

Biden Administration Leaves Border Patrol in Impossible Situation, Then Chastises Them

Published

Alejandro Mayorkas

Photos and video were released of the almost 15,000 migrants, primarily from Haiti, congregating under a bridge in a Texas border town over the weekend. Overcrowding and pleas from local politicians and border patrol agents prompted the Department of Homeland Security to expel over 6,000 Haitians on flights back to Haiti.

President Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris have been pathetically absent from the increasing crisis their administration created at the southern border. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas was forced to take action and issued a statement that was long overdue.

“If you come to the United States illegally, you will be returned. Your journey will not succeed, and you will be endangering your life and your family’s life” said Mayorkas. The expulsion of the 6,000 migrants, with more on the way, is legal action the U.S. can take, thanks to a pandemic-related authority implemented by former President Donald Trump in March of 2020.

President Biden upheld Trump’s policy but exempted unaccompanied children. As of Saturday, a peak number of 14,872 migrants were at the bridge trying to get into the United States. Mayorkas said 600 Homeland Security employees, including Coast Guard, have been brought to the border town to aid in the border chaos.

Photos and video emerged of officials on horseback trying to keep migrants from crossing the river which prompted White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki to finally make a comment regarding the border. She took the chance to chastise the very people her boss forced into the situation.

“I don’t think anyone seeing that footage would think it acceptable or appropriate” Psaki said of the “horrific” footage and called for an investigation. A solution to the border crisis itself, however, was not discussed.

In an afternoon news conference, both Mayorkas and U.S. Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz said they did not see anything obviously wrong from the photos and videos. Mayorkas even explains agents use long reins, not whips, to control their horses. Ortiz mentioned it can be confusing to distinguish migrants from smugglers as people frantically cross the river back and forth.

Later on Monday, the Department of Homeland Security did issue a statement calling the footage “extremely troubling” and promised an investigation to “define the appropriate disciplinary actions to be taken.”

Border Agents Accused Of Whipping Migrants Taken Off Law Enforcement Duties

U.S. Border Patrol

On Wednesday, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced that U.S. Border Patrol agents that had been falsely accused of using “whips” on Haitian illegal immigrants are no longer conducting law enforcement duties while the incident is investigated.

“Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, who initially backed the agents before changing his stance amid outrage from the White House and left-wing Democrats, told a House Committee that the agents had been taken off the frontlines amid an investigation that he expected to take days, rather than weeks,” Fox News reported.

“We have ensured that the individuals during the pendency of the investigation are not conducting law enforcement duties to interact with migrants, but rather are conducting only administrative duties,” Mayorkas told the Committee.

“The facts will drive the actions that we take,” he said. “We ourselves will pull no punches and we need to conduct this investigation thoroughly, but very quickly. It will be completed in days, if not weeks.”

The announcement comes as U.S. Border Patrol is already being overwhelmed by the record-high levels of illegal immigration, which has passed 200,000 border encounters for the second consecutive month – the first time that number has been reached in 21 years.

In response to the illegal immigration surge, which began in March, a group of 26 governors sent a letter to President Biden urging him to take action to stop the flood of illegal immigrants across the southern border.

“The months-long surge in illegal crossings has instigated an international humanitarian crisis, spurred a spike in international criminal activity, and opened the floodgates to human traffickers and drug smugglers endangering public health and safety in our states,” the letter said, in part. “A crisis that began at our southern border now extends beyond to every state and requires immediate action before the situation worsens.”

However, reducing the number of U.S. Border Patrol agents able to perform law enforcement duties appears to be taking a step in the opposite direction.
