President Joe Biden promised during his election campaign that he would suspend deportations of illegal aliens. However, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) recently deported hundreds of illegals.
According to the ICE report, at least 15 people were transported to Jamaica, and 269 to Guatemala and Honduras, between Jan. 28 and Jan. 29, reported NBC News on Feb. 2.
ICE had scheduled more deportations for Feb. 1, and at least 30 more illegal aliens were received in Guatemala that day.
These failures to live up to his promises create uncertainty around whether Biden will mimic former President Barack Obama’s immigration policies, who went on to deport a record-breaking 2.7 million illegal aliens.
Thomas Homan, former associate executive director of ICE during Obama’s presidency for almost four years, disclosed that among other things, during the Obama administration, cages of metal bars were built to lock up children who were separated from their parents when they entered the country illegally, mainly through the Mexican border.
Biden had declared a 100-day moratorium on deportations that were executed during Donald Trump’s presidency, but that was not fulfilled.
Other of Biden’s promises include a policy of open borders to all immigrants who want it, in addition to amnesty for illegal aliens in the United States.
If successful, Biden would bring about an increase of 77 million people to the country’s population, according to National Pulse on Sept. 7.
According to a Yale University study, there are not 11 million illegal aliens in the United States, but more than 22 million.
The White House reported that 3.5 more people enter the country for every naturalized immigrant because of family ties. That would result in an increase of 77 million people in the U.S. population if Biden goes ahead and grants amnesty for illegals.
Biden is expected to issue other provisions on immigration policies, which have long been cherished by the Democrats who have the ambition of substantially expanding the number of people who could vote for them.
