The Biden administration is preparing to notify Congress and Americans this week that it will dramatically increase refugee admissions to the United States. The limit would increase by more than eight times the current level. According to the act, this measure would have to go through Congress for discussion, however Biden would issue it in an executive order.
Biden is about to approve an increase in the refugee cap that would multiply the current cap of 15,000 people more than eight times, bringing it to about 125,000 people. The president’s move is in line with his globalist policy of erasing borders and fueling his power by generating a large voter base among the most vulnerable sectors including illegal aliens, refugees, and minorities.
Changes to refugee numbers
Some Biden administration officials spoke on condition of anonymity ahead of the formal announcement, and as reported by The Associated Press, said Biden will make his plan public during a visit to the State Department on Thursday, Feb. 4.
President Biden’s measure will take effect on Oct. 1, when the fiscal year begins. In the meantime, the current refugee cap would be respected.
Criticism began to arrive quickly, on the one hand because the Biden administration’s open border policies are generating more and more resistance, and on the other hand because, according to the law, this type of decision should first pass through Congress to be discussed and justified.
While the existence of millions of refugees in the world is a reality and encompasses a difficult problem to solve, it is also true that millions of immigrants take advantage of this category to enter developed countries more easily, so it is important that there is real control to ensure that those who enter under the category of refugees are really those who come escaping war or political and/or religious persecution.
The Trump administration implemented a complex system of vetting and background checks, precisely to have true information about who are the individuals entering the United States, and established a logical system of analysis to determine priorities of choice.
Former President Trump’s actions
The more restrictive policies regarding immigration carried out under the Trump administration, coupled with his relentless economic policies, brought record levels of employment and output to the United States.
Biden is breaking with all the actions that over the past four years led to the nation’s economic growth, among them immigration policies.
The flexible border policy already announced in Biden’s campaign, is one of the critical points that is being imposed quickly and without room for discussion in Congress.
Ending more Trump policies
Biden has pledged to end the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), which keep migrants in Mexico while they go through their hearings that will determine whether or not they will enter the U.S. Known as the “Stay in Mexico” policy, this policy has been key to ending the “catch and release” by which millions of illegal immigrants have been released into the U.S. when border jails were overwhelmed and there was no other option but to release the prisoners.
On the other hand, Biden implemented a 100-day moratorium on deporting illegal aliens, resulting in overcrowded detention facilities and unnecessary taxpayer-funded spending. Several states have already begun legal action against the federal government over this issue. And in Texas Federal Judge Drew Tipton on Tuesday, Jan. 26, issued the order to block the moratorium after Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton sued President Joe Biden’s administration late last week alleging the moratorium is unconstitutional and violates an agreement between the Department of Homeland Security and Texas.
Now add to this the decision to significantly increase the country’s refugee base.
Biden administration has more open border policies
President Biden intends to implement all of these open border policies just when the economic crisis resulting from the quarantines imposed as a result of the CCP Virus is hitting the United States hard.
More than 18 million unemployed Americans will now have to compete on an equal footing in the labor market with thousands of new refugees and immigrants, which will inevitably lead to falling wages and more unemployment.
