President Joe Biden has reduced deportations of illegal migrants from 25 cities by about 90%, helping business groups with a flood of desperate, low-wage workers.
Biden’s business giveaway was revealed by the Center for Immigration Studies, which also showed Biden’s lawmakers cut the deportation of criminal migrants who threaten Americans and the country’s growing illegal migrant population by two-thirds.
Only 18,713 illegal immigrants were officially “withdrawn” – deported – from 25 interior cities, such as Atlanta, Baltimore and Miami, from January to July 2021, according to data from Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The 2021 return count only includes 6,000 migrants convicted of serious crimes, such as MS-13 migrants.
In 2019, under Trump, 186,019 migrants were deported from the 25 cities, including 17,553 migrants convicted of serious crimes. Amid Trump’s enforcement, employers have been forced to raise wages, especially for low-income Americans.
In 2020, despite the coronavirus crash, Trump’s MPs expelled 93,247 migrants from cities, including 13,120 migrants convicted of serious crimes.
In 2021, the deportation rate in 25 cities has fallen to around 3,000 per month since the Senate confirmed Alejandro Mayorkas, appointed by Biden to head the Department of Homeland Security.
In calendar year 2021, Mayorkas is on track to deport just 40,000 migrants from 25 cities. The annual deportations from Mayorkas represent one in 275 illegal migrants living in the United States.
In 2019, before the coronavirus crash, Trump’s lawmakers deported 267,000 illegal migrants nationwide, many of whom committed violent crimes in the United States.
The probable expulsion by Mayorkas of 40,000 migrants during the year 2021 from the 25 cities is within a month of arrival of “fugitives” – illegal migrants who are detected but who successfully escape the border patrol . So far, around 400,000 migrants looking for work have made their way across the border under Mayorkas’ lax rules.
Biden ICE data does not include migrants who have been turned back from the border – and sometimes deported to their home country – under Title 42 anti-epidemic rules.
Mayorkas is a Cuban immigrant and a migration fanatic. During a Senate hearing in November, for example, Senator Tom Cotton (R-AR) asked him, “What should be a higher priority for the United States government?” Secure our border or grant amnesty to illegal aliens who are already here? “
“Justice is our priority,” replied Mayorkas, adding “This includes securing our border and helping those who [migrants] who are entitled to it under our laws.
No Democrats voted against Mayorkas’ confirmation in February. His confirmation was also backed by several GOP Senators, including Lisa Murkowski (R-AK), Mitt Romney (R-UT), Dan Sullivan (R-AK), Shelley Moore Capito (R-WV), Susan Collins (R -ME), and outgoing Senator Rob Portman (R-OH).
Mayorkas policies mirror the post-1990 US government policy of extracting migrants from other countries to work, hire, and spend in the United States. This economic policy attracts migrants from other countries via several channels – legal migration, visa workers and illegal migration – thus stable wages for employees, but driving up real estate values and the stock market for investors.
Mayorkas DHS has refused to disclose some data that was previously made public, according to CIS:
The ICE has so far refused to provide information on whether the deported alien has been arrested at the border or inside. Therefore, these statistics should be interpreted with caution as it is not clear to what extent they can reflect the level of enforcement at the border as well as within. Nonetheless, it is possible to see from these files how significantly Biden’s new policies have reduced ICE enforcement activity.
Mayorkas and his allies say they are using taxpayer money to focus on “the worst of the worst.”
“The officers of the ICE do not actually apply more effectively, but simply apply less” because of the bureaucratic barriers imposed, the CIS wrote:
According to ICE sources, due to the cumbersome process, and also due to sanctuary policies in some major jurisdictions, most ICE arrests are now handled by fugitive operations teams rather than by ICE agents working in prisons, as was the norm before Biden’s policies. have been implemented. Routine arrests, once approved, now require a team of multiple officers who work for days to prepare a plan and execute each arrest, which now must take place in the community in an area not designated as a “sensitive” location.
An ICE staff member told me that the process is extremely inefficient: “Instead of having one person working in a prison who can arrest four or five criminal aliens per team, we now have to send five or six guys. to make one or maybe two arrests in a shift.
In addition to requiring what is essentially unnecessary tedious work to seek an extra layer of approval for each arrest, the agency’s management also reduced domestic enforcement by reducing the number of serving officers. This has been accomplished in a number of ways, including sending officers to work at the border and even paying officers not to work. For example, ICE staff recently got extra days off for “administrative leave” for Veterans Day and the Friday after Thanksgiving, which are generally not federal holidays.
Pending the arrival of new leaders within the agency, states should use their powers to facilitate deportations, Vaughan wrote:
With less immigration enforcement, American communities will continue to grapple with the costs associated with illegal immigration, including the displacement of American workers, lower wages, more spending on social services and education and additional crime problems. While Congress could theoretically step in to impose stricter enforcement mandates and spending requirements, in the meantime state and local governments should act to discourage illegal settlements, penalize illegal employment, maintain conditions of employment. Strict eligibility for all public benefits and driver’s licenses, and ensure that state and local law enforcement agencies fully cooperate with ICE to identify foreign criminals.
Overall, legal and illegal migration moves wealth from employees to employers, families to investors, young to old, children to parents, homebuyers to investors, technology to work strength.
Immigration also shifts wealth from central red states to coastal blue states. Within each state, the policy of extraction also helps shift wealth and status from rural districts of the GOP to Democratic cities.
Immigration radicalizes the democratic and compromise-friendly civic culture of Americans and allows elites to ignore desperate Americans in the bottom of society.
