President Trump’s immigration policy reduced the flow of illegal aliens into the U.S. This was a significant accomplishment. One of the most important aspects of Trump’s strategy was the “Remain in Mexico” Policy, referred to by DHS as Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP). “The MPP is a U.S. Government action whereby certain foreign individuals entering or seeking admission to the U.S. from Mexico — illegally or without proper documentation — may be returned to Mexico and wait outside of the U.S. for the duration of their immigration proceedings.”

The federal government is responsible for securing the country’s borders. President Biden has shirked this responsibility. Biden issued an executive order ending Trump’s successful immigration policy. A few months later, DHS director Mayorkas ended MPP, opening U.S. borders. Illegal aliens encountered on the southwest border totaled 458,088 in 2020; 1,734,686 in 2021; and 2,766,582 in 2022. Nobody knows how many aliens have entered the U.S. unencountered. In 2017, the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) estimated that the cost of illegal immigration to American taxpayers was $116 billion.
