After rule changes implemented by President-imposed Joe Biden have gone into effect, Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) officers deported the fewest number of people since the agency’s inception last month
They only deported 3,000 illegal immigrants in the month of April, and the agency’s 6,000 employees are basically sitting around doing nothing. An ICE agent only averages one arrest every two months during a time when the border is being flooded by third-world migrants.
The Washington Post explains that the Biden regime has put ICE on “probation” for doing their jobs properly throughout the Trump years. They note that Biden “has placed ICE deportation officers on a leash so tight that some say their work is being functionally abolished.”
Biden’s immigration policies are being dictated by left-wing advocacy groups in the White House. They are pushing to reduce enforcement even further from the current historic low during a 20-year peak of illegals crossing the U.S. southern border. They continue to deny the border crisis even as activists demand action.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced last week that two ICE detention centers will be closed. The Biden regime is being pressured to ax the funding for ICE in the upcoming budget. Mayorkas is claiming that he wants to make ICE more efficient rather than attack the organization.
“I really am focused on it becoming a premier national security and law enforcement agency,” Mayorkas said. “I really want to elevate all of the other work [ICE] does and also ensure that its civil immigration work is well-focused in the service of the national security and public safety mission.”
However, Mayorkas’ history shows him to be an open borders cheerleader who has complete and utter contempt for the American worker.
Big League Politics has reported on how Mayorkas imported cheap labor to the U.S. to replace native workers and reward globalist Democrat donors while serving under Obama:
“Arkansas Republican Senator Tom Cotton confirmed he would vote against Joe Biden’s pick for the Department of Homeland Security in the event Biden is inaugurated, citing Alejandro Mayorkas’s track record of delivering cheap labor visas to elite Democrat donors and business interests as the Director of US Citizenship and Immigration Services. Mayorkas served as USCIS Director in the Obama administration.
Cotton explained his rationale on opposing a tentative Mayorkas nomination in a tweet thread over the weekend. Cotton cited a report from DHS’s Inspector General who indicated Mayorkas consistently approved visa applications for workers that would be employed by politically-connected and influential Democrats for American jobs…
Mayorkas had provided free visa workers to companies owned by Democrats such as former Virginia Governor Terry McAuliffe and Nevada arch-Democrat Senator Harry Reid. The 2014 DHS IG’s report on Mayorkas’s corporate welfarism indicated that the Democrat-affiliated bureaucrat had expressed annoyance at inquiries from USCIS employees on improving counter-fraud efforts, instead demanding that they focus on approving as many migrant visas as possible. The IG’s report had accused him of “an appearance of favoritism and special access” through his political use of visa programs.”
The Biden regime is letting dangerous criminals flood across the border to give the Democrat Party the permanent edge in the voting booth. This way, they won’t even have to steal elections to consolidate power in the future.
