Suddenly, Biden Considers Using Immigration Powers That Trump Used

It’s almost like the Brandon regime had all these powers to restrict illegal immigration, but, intentionally chose to do the opposite

White House weighing executive actions on the border — with immigration powers used by Trump

The White House is considering using provisions of federal immigration law repeatedly tapped by former President Donald Trump to unilaterally enact a sweeping crackdown at the southern border, according to three people familiar with the deliberations.

The administration, stymied by Republican lawmakers who rejected a negotiated border bill earlier this month, has been exploring options that President Joe Biden could deploy on his own without congressional approval, multiple officials and others familiar with the talks said. But the plans are nowhere near finalized and it’s unclear how the administration would draft any such executive actions in a way that would survive the inevitable legal challenges. The officials and those familiar with the talks spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity to comment on private ongoing White House discussions.

Trump did not need Congress to do anything: he already had the statutory authority to restrict illegal immigration and those demanding asylum. He used them, despite Democrats always suing. For those who were caught, he should have shipped them to sanctuary cities like several did, such as Greg Abbott

The exploration of such avenues by Biden’s team underscores the pressure the president faces this election year on immigration and the border, which have been among his biggest political liabilities since he took office. For now, the White House has been hammering congressional Republicans for refusing to act on border legislation that the GOP demanded, but the administration is also aware of the political perils that high numbers of migrants could pose for the president and is scrambling to figure out how Biden could ease the problem on his own.

White House spokesperson Angelo Fernández Hernández stressed that “no executive action, no matter how aggressive, can deliver the significant policy reforms and additional resources Congress can provide and that Republicans rejected.”

Blah blah blah. Republicans in the House should pass a hardcore bill that significantly restricts asylum claims, and forces them to apply outside the U.S. A bill that immediately deports all caught illegally in the U.S. Allocates lots of money for the wall and border agents. Allows states to surge their own forces and block the border. And so much more.

The question with Biden, though, is, “will he do something or is he just making noise?” A further question is “if he actually does something, will he go back to an unsecured border and what he’s done for the past 3 years if he wins in November?”

    More talk. No action.

    Oh well, Biden is trailing to a criminal. The most evil man on the planet. A baby eater. A Fascist and a Nazi. Trump who is an orange man and probably from another planet is beating Biden badly in the polling.

    Time to ramp up the Democrat machine. Because no matter how badly Biden is as a president, he is 1 million times better than Trump who will stop the insanity like a bull stops drunk teenagers from climbing the fence with a red blanket.

    So let’s have someone arrested who lied about the Biden family crime family…..hahahahaha….fooled you fools who vote Democratic. Let’s tell the people that the GOP nixed legalization of the BIDEN atrocity committed on our southern border by LEGALIZING the massive influx of Illegal immigrants.

    Yeah fooled you the stupid voter.

    Then let’s tell them we are actively going to do SOMETHING about the border cause of them damn Republicans that would NOT LEGALIZE MY CRIMES…..

    Oh, and that was a GOP special counsel who decided not to go after Biden in court because the poor man won’t be able to let his wife speak for him on the stand. Why did he exonerate the Crime Lord. Well he didnt want to end up dead or in prison or without a job. So he told the truth. Biden is incompetent to be president because he is a criminal and Demented and in fact we have his wife running the country along with a bunch of woke noobs who haven’t a clue what poking the Russian BEAR might inflict on this world.

    There is a reason most people in power have climbed the ladder from noob to seasoned vet to aging oracle when it comes to foreign affairs and such. Biden bypassed all that and let the woke kiddies run the candy store for him while he dozed in the basement.

    Smooth move EXLAX er I mean DNC.

    In other words, we don’t need the ‘compromise’ legislation, but can retain our existing immigration laws; all we need to do is enforce them.

    Congress should end all asylum programs. There are only 2 countries bordering the usa and neither one of them is experiencing war, famine or natural disasters. Send them all home.
