Joe Biden’s plan to open the borders just received a giant assist.
Another Trump policy just got scrapped.
And that happened when Mexico made one giant change that will send the border crisis spiraling out of control.
Mexico announced that it was ending an agreement it made with the Trump administration to accept illegal alien families expelled after being caught trying to sneak into America.
This emergency policy was put in place during the coronavirus pandemic.
And now this is helping to lead to the return of catch and release policy where the Biden administration turns illegal aliens loose into the interior of the United States.
The Washington Post reports:
The Mexican government has stopped taking back Central American families “expelled” at the U.S. border under a Trump-era emergency health order related to the coronavirus, a shift that has prompted U.S. Customs and Border Protection to release more parents and children into the U.S. interior, according to five U.S. officials…
…Mexico’s new policy has been applied unevenly. In Nogales, for example, families continued to be returned to Mexico — deposited on the streets rather than taken to family shelters. In a number of border cities, families continue to be returned to Mexico.
The U.S. government is already witnessing a border surge as illegal aliens race to flow into the country with the knowledge Joe Biden suspended virtually all deportations for 100 days.
Customs and Border Patrol reports being overwhelmed.
“CBP has seen a steady increase in border encounters since April 2020, which, aggravated by COVID-19 restrictions and social distancing guidelines, has caused some facilities to reach maximum, safe holding capacity. Whenever feasible we are seeking alternatives to detention in cases where the law allows,” the Border Patrol told The Washington Post.
The Trump administration took every step possible to control the border and not allow illegal aliens who may be infected with coronavirus to pour into the country.
Instead, Joe Biden’s number one priority is the ability of illegal aliens to enter the country.
