Biden administration’s newest immigration move has completely shaken things up

The border crisis has been all over the news ever since Joe Biden created the problem. But now, new developments could change everything.

And the Biden administration’s newest immigration move has completely shaken things up.

In a significant move on Tuesday, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced it had deported a group of Chinese illegal immigrants over the weekend, marking the first large deportation charter flight to China since 2018.

This step, as part of Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas’ ongoing engagement with the People’s Republic of China (PRC), underscores the administration’s renewed focus on immigration enforcement amid a growing border crisis.

The DHS, while not specifying the number of deportees, emphasized that this action reflects their commitment to enforcing immigration laws.

“We will continue to enforce our immigration laws and remove individuals without a legal basis to remain in the United States,” Mayorkas stated in a press release.

He also cautioned against believing the false promises of human smugglers, reiterating the dangers and legal consequences of illegal migration.

This deportation initiative is framed within a broader context of cooperation between the United States and China to curb irregular migration and human smuggling through enhanced law enforcement efforts.

Despite the exact number of deported Chinese migrants not being disclosed, this action pales compared to the over 31,000 Chinese nationals apprehended at the U.S. southern border in the first 11 months of 2023 alone.

This figure surpasses the cumulative total of the previous decade, highlighting the escalating challenge faced by border enforcement agencies under the Biden administration.

In a bid to manage the surge at the borders, President Biden recently signed an executive order to temporarily suspend the entry of certain migrants if daily encounters exceed 2,500.

This move, however, has faced criticism from Republicans who view it as too little, too late. House Speaker Mike Johnson (R-LA) dismissed the executive order as mere “window dressing,” suggesting that genuine concern for border security would have prompted earlier and more robust actions.

Beyond the influx of Chinese migrants, the southern border has seen a rise in other security threats.

Notably, last month, eight individuals with alleged ties to ISIS were arrested after illegally crossing into the U.S.

This incident, involving discussions about bombings, underscores the heightened security risks associated with the porous border.

The Biden administration’s handling of the border crisis has been further scrutinized following several high-profile crimes allegedly committed by illegal immigrants.

Former President Donald Trump has been vocal about the deteriorating situation, stating, “This is horrible what’s taken place. What’s taken place in our country, we’re literally an uncivilized country now.”

This latest deportation flight to China is part of the administration’s broader efforts to demonstrate a tough stance on immigration as it faces mounting political pressure.

However, the true impact of these measures on the overall border crisis remains to be seen, with many critics arguing that more comprehensive and proactive policies are needed to address the root causes and ensure the security and integrity of U.S. borders.

We must elect officials into public office who will genuinely prioritize the lives and liberties of American citizens and not simply react after it is too late.
