The US border has deteriorated from an enhancing scenario underneath Donald Trump to an absolute out-of-control catastrophe underneath Joe Biden. We’ve seen record-breaking numbers of apprehensions (which suggests whole crossings are record-breaking as effectively) underneath the present president, because the White Home has discouraged enforcement and targeted on made-up controversies as a substitute of defending the nation.
But, even because the administration stays so maliciously inept, issues are set to alter. Biden is now set to bend the knee to Trump, reinstating the extremely profitable “Stay in Mexico” coverage which noticed the border stabilized underneath the final president.
SCOOP: Biden will restart Trump’s “Stay in Mexico” coverage that may ship asylum seekers again to Mexico forward of their immigration court docket hearings. https://t.co/G5i3SLU4oN

President Biden will begin turning asylum seekers again to Mexico as quickly as subsequent week underneath a reinstated Trump-era “Stay in Mexico” program — however will supply them the choice to obtain the COVID-19 vaccine, Axios has realized.
There are some catches, although. For one, this wouldn’t be occurring with out a court docket order that the administration vehemently fought. But, I believe that is one “loss” the White Home welcomes. They will faux they don’t truly need to reinstate the coverage whereas reaping the advantages of it. Anticipate numerous taking part in either side, with Biden claiming, on the one hand, that his fingers are tied whereas on the identical time taking credit score for the border scenario when it improves.
However there’s additionally the difficulty of Mexico. Trump had garnered the unique “Stay in Mexico” deal by fomenting good relations. These have largely been destroyed by Biden’s actions and Kamala Harris’ ridiculous blame-shifting. Opposite to what some could consider, Mexico’s management doesn’t like their nation being an unlawful immigrant super-highway from Central America. They see Biden’s insurance policies as incentivizing migrants to make the journey…as a result of Biden’s insurance policies incentivize migrants to make the journey.
So the query turns into whether or not the Mexicans even need to assist us out at this level. I’ve my doubts, and in the event that they don’t, that may signify the right excuse for Biden to throw his fingers up and inform the court docket “welp, I attempted.”
Biden might additionally face main pushback inside his personal celebration as many Democrats see the coverage as a humanitarian concern. The thought appears to be that it’s harmful for asylum seekers to remain in Mexico till it may be adjudicated that their claims have benefit. However is it safer to stuff them in cages after which launch them into high-crime areas of the USA with nothing however the garments on their again and presumably a meal ticket? Once more, I discover the protestations of the left fully unconvincing.
The actual fact is that the asylum system is damaged, and never in the best way liberals proclaim. It’s damaged as a result of it offers an incentive for financial migrants to fraudulently declare they’re underneath menace whereas gaining entry into the USA inside. That then perpetuates the cycle as increasingly more individuals see it as a loophole to use.
The present administration is simply high-quality with that established order, although. They don’t care that it enriches the drug cartels and results in murders, intercourse trafficking, and different horrific acts. Every thing is politics for Biden and his cohorts. The actual lives being affected be damned.
