FIX IT, JOE! Biden Admin Weighing Tougher Asylum Laws, Quicker Deportations at Border; Report

posted by Hannity Staff - 2.21.24

According to an NBC News report, President Biden and his administration are weighing implementing stricter asylum laws at the southern border and a quicker deportation policy for migrants who don’t meet the new asylum qualifications.

According to sources, Biden would be able to implement the new policies without Congress, despite the POTUS claiming for months he needs lawmakers on the Hill to help him fix the border crisis.

From NBC News:

The actions, which are still weeks away from finalization, are an effort to lower the number of migrants crossing the southern border illegally as immigration remains a top issue for voters heading into the 2024 presidential election.

Under the new policies, asylum officers would be instructed to raise the standards they use in their “credible fear interviews,” the first screening given to asylum-seekers who are trying to avoid deportation for crossing the border illegally. And Immigration and Customs Enforcement would be told to prioritize recently arrived migrants for deportation, in a “last in, first out” policy, the officials said.

A congressional aide with knowledge of the deliberations said the Biden administration has yet to make a decision, but raising the bar on asylum and deporting more newly arrived migrants are considered “low hanging fruit” and actions that can be taken quickly.
The three U.S. officials said it is unclear whether the policies would be achieved through executive order or a new federal regulation, which could take months to implement.

Making it harder to claim asylum and fast-tracking migrants for deportation are not new ideas, but they are being considered more seriously as the Biden administration looks for ways to tamp down chaos at the border after Republicans blocked border security provisions in the National Security Supplemental bill earlier this month.

Biden is facing intense pressure from both sides of the aisle to address the border crisis. Sanctuary cities like New York City, Chicago, and San Francisco are at a breaking point.
