The Biden-Harris Administration has caused America’s immigration problems to grow into a full-scale humanitarian crisis.
Instead of continuing President Trump’s common-sense immigration solutions, the Biden Administration has been quietly undermining them since they first came into power.
Immigration hawks were furious when Biden announced he was ending the construction of Trump’s border wall – but now they’ll be red with rage when they learn about his latest immigration policy change.
“Overstay” illegal migrants make up at least forty percent of America’s illegal population, says Jessica Vaughan, Director of Policy Studies for the Center for Immigration Studies.
And according to a report released by the Department of Homeland Security, nearly six-hundred eighty five thousand migrants overstayed their legally required departure date in the twelve months leading up to September 30th, 2020.
Despite this shocking admission of failure by the Biden-Harris Administration, they’re now making it easier for migrants to overstay their visas.
That’s why Vaughan started sounding the alarm she learned of this drastic change of immigraiton policy saying, “Now, we have Biden loosening standards for issuing the non-immigrant visas and broadcasting that immigration enforcement in the interior area has been nearly snuffed out by policy. So we should be very concerned that for the foreseeable future, there are going to be even more people trying to get these visas to get into the country because they know that if they get here, they’ll be able to stay in all likelihood. I expect the problem to get much worse.”
Some may speculate that this overstay visa problem is due largely because of the coronavirus pandemic, but they’d be wrong.
President Trump’s conservative administration took steps to reducing the number of overstay migrants years before the coronavirus started plaguing the earth.
While the origins of this growing problem may be difficult to pinpoint, Vaughan believes, “Much of the attention of policymakers is on the border itself, the land border, and not enough on the side doors through which people come with a visa but then end up staying here illegally. These overstayers are a very significant chunk of the illegal population. We don’t know exactly how many there are, but we know it’s at least 40 percent [of the illegal population, and] they tend to be more white-collar workers because they had to qualify for a [visitor or work] visa in the first place.”
While these numbers may be staggering, what’s even more scary is the fact that we won’t have the numbers of visa overstayers for Biden’s first eight months in office until AT LEAST September 2022.
Given the robust numbers of overstay migrants during the Trump era, Right News Wire doubts that things will improve under Joe Biden and Kamala Harris’ “leadership,” especially given their incredibly dumb decision to make it easier for migrants to overstay their visas.
