The Biden administration’s way of handling things is by creating new task forces to get things done. Task forces that do nothing and usually end up being a waste of money.
At the border, thousands upon thousands of Venezuelans are fleeing their country. Understandably so because of their socialist dictator. Now the White House is considering to give expedited access to Venezuelan migrants. Due to the Russian invasion, this kind of status has also been given to Ukrainians.
Mexico, meanwhile, said that to cope with increased flows, it would “temporarily” allow some Venezuelan nationals to enter Mexico through the U.S. border, without specifying a number.
More than 150,000 Venezuelans were picked up at the U.S.-Mexico border between October 2021 and August 2022, according to U.S. government data. That compares to nearly 48,000 Venezuelans apprehended at the U.S.-Mexico border in the 2021 fiscal year.
Mexican officials argue that economic sanctions against the government of Venezuelan leader Nicolas Maduro are fueling illegal immigration, and should be eased.
The United States was already expelling hundreds of Venezuelans to Mexico before the plan was announced, a Mexican official said. U.S. statistics show 453 Venezuelan expulsions for August, the most recent data publicly available.
To qualify for the new entry program, a person or organization based in the United States must support the applicant’s request, and they would enter U.S. territory by air.
Those seeking to apply must not go to the U.S.-Mexico border, Mexico’s government said. Venezuelans who enter Mexico or Panama illegally from Oct. 12 will not be eligible for the program, U.S. officials said.
At Mexico’s request, the United States will provide an additional 65,000 temporary visas to migrants for non-agricultural jobs, the Mexican government said. Of those visas, 20,000 will be allocated to Central Americans and Haitians.
The DHS stated that the US would not implement the process if Mexico doesn’t accept illegals from Venezuela being sent back to Mexico. At first, this seems like the Biden Administration will reopen how Trump has handled the crisis at the border.
However, it should be noted that the demands from the US come from a position of weakness. Biden is not respected or feared. Secondly, this is another way of the government mishandling asylum seekers.
Immigration activists have mixed feelings, stating that the Biden Administration has taken steps backward “to the cruel immigration policies of Donald Trump.” All because of the mean GOP governors bringing light to the border crisis by delivering the illegals onto the north’s doorstep.
Fox News reported:
The administration also announced that all Venezuelans entering the U.S. illegally would now be returned to Mexico under the Title 42 public health order — which was implemented during the Trump administration due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The order allows for the rapid expulsion of migrants and is one that the Biden administration has been seeking to end, but has been stopped by a legal challenge…
“By bending to the callous whims of Republican governors in Texas, Arizona and Florida as this country gears up for midterm elections, the Biden Administration has taken multiple steps backwards in time to the cruel immigration policies of Donald Trump,” he said in a statement.
“America must uphold an asylum system that is fair, humane, and orderly for all people regardless of nationality, race, ethnicity or having U.S. ties. It is time for Title 42 to be ended once and for all. It is time for the Biden Administration to make good on its promises and return America to being a beacon of hope,” he said.
Activists have long claimed that Title 42 is cruel and sends people back to Mexico, where they can be placed in danger. Many demand that migrants be allowed to claim asylum, even if they enter the U.S. illegally and do not make claims at ports of entry.
Maybe these so-called activists should start asking as to why these illegals are fleeing their countries. Why are they leaving in droves? Their virtue-signaling/non-binary selves can’t admit that it is because most Latin American countries are god-awful places. Dictators run them with terrible policies. The very same policies that they want to be put in place here.
