Tuesday, the Biden Administration released a 21-point plan for processing asylum seekers more quickly.
It would allow some to bypass immigration courts, which have a 1.2 million-case backlog, and let their cases be decided by asylum officers. (FYI: the courts would be backlogged even worse if Biden would let immigration authorities schedule court dates or if those who did have them were actually showing up for them.)
They claim the plan would also promptly deport those who don’t qualify (question: would there be any of those under Biden?) There’s a lot of nice talk, like, “We will always be a nation of borders, and we will enforce our immigration laws in a way that is fair and just,” but is that just camouflage to hide the devil in the details?
Color me skeptical, considering that the White House statement declared that “asylum and other legal migration pathways should remain available to those seeking protection.”
Do you know who’s currently seeking protection from deadly threats by a genuinely oppressive government? Cubans.
