Officials on President Joe Biden’s National Security Council (NSC) are reportedly warning that by ending former President Donald Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” program, Biden is about to unleash an unprecedented flood of illegal immigration.
In June, the Supreme Court ruled in a 5-4 decision that the Biden administration can end the Remain in Mexico program but also sent the issue back to lower courts.
Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas then vowed to end the program when the agency is legally allowed to do so.
NSC officials spoke anonymously to the Wall Street Journal to warn that officially ending the Remain in Mexico program will have a catastrophic impact on America.
The officials warn that it will lead to an even larger flood of illegal immigration to the U.S. while simultaneously crippling negotiations with Mexico.
According to the Journal, “The NSC officials have cited a number of reasons for their wariness, including that they are concerned that the publicity around ending the program could attract more people to cross the border illegally, the people said. Specifically, the program remains one of the only deterrent tools the administration can use to handle asylum-seeking migrants from Cuba and Venezuela, countries that aren’t taking back any deported citizens from the U.S.”
“They are also worried that ending the program entirely would upend continuing immigration negotiations with the Mexican government, which would prefer to see the program remain in place, they said.”
The Journal additionally reported that, “NSC officials have also argued that ending the program could immediately prompt more litigation by Texas and other Republican-led states that could force the government to quickly start the program back up again, the people said. An initial lawsuit by Texas and Missouri prompted the administration to restart the program last fall as the case was pending with the Supreme Court.”
The more radicalized DHS, meanwhile, is fully backing the termination of the Remain in Mexico program. DHS officials claim that the border program is “too expensive” to operate, despite the fact that the amount of illegal immigrants the Biden administration has allowed to enter the country would cost American taxpayers billions of dollars.
The Remain in Mexico program has also drastically helped eliminate asylum fraud where border crossers and illegal aliens, who knowingly did not qualify for asylum, were released into the U.S. interior regardless.
Only 1.6 percent of migrants enrolled in the program have been found to have legitimate asylum claims.
Nevertheless, the Biden administration is hell-bent on allowing illegal immigrants to flood into the country and destroy America’s sovereignty – meaning they are intentionally attacking the most effective border programs the U.S. has.
