Biden Just Gave Migrants Another Reason To Jump Our Border
As if it were not enough that the Biden Administration created this Border Crisis, Biden has just made things worse. He is now practically inviting pregnant and nursing mothers to come here with his newest edict. Biden has told ICE not to apprehend any pregnant or nursing illegals.
"President Biden’s administration is expected to begin releasing pregnant women and those who recently gave birth after they are apprehended illegally crossing the US-Mexico border.
Although fewer than 20 people currently held by the government would be released, prior Biden administration policy changes have been panned for unintentionally fueling the ongoing border crisis."
"The new policy will apply to Immigration and Customs Enforcement, but not US Customs and Border Protection — meaning that the women could be apprehended at the border before being released by ICE, the New York Times reports."
ICE put out a Press release explaining their new stance.
"ICE is committed to safeguarding the integrity of our immigration system and preserving the health and safety of pregnant, postpartum, and nursing individuals,” said Acting ICE Director Tae D. Johnson. “Given the unique needs of this population, we will not detain individuals known to be pregnant, postpartum, or nursing unless release is prohibited by law or exceptional circumstances exist. This reflects our commitment to treat all individuals with respect and dignity while still enforcing our nation’s laws.”
Border Patrol is still allowed to apprehend migrants before they come here. But Biden's message is going to encourage some pregnant women to come here. Border Patrol has already called for aid and explained that they are so overburdened that numerous illegals cross the border unhindered daily. But instead of answering their call and providing them with extra personnel or reinstating useful policies, Dems want to work on the path to citizenship. So really, all Biden did is put a bunch of pregnant migrants in danger, and encourage more migrants to come here with our practically open border.
