During her Thursday press briefing, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre insisted administration officials are “doing everything we can to deal with” the still-increasing surge of migrants at the southwest border.
That’s not true, and Jean-Pierre knows it: President Biden’s not doing the one thing the law requires — detaining illegal entrants.
The reason they’re coming is they know Biden’s going to release them, allowing most to live and work here forever.
The law’s extremely straightforward, requiring the Department of Homeland Security to hold all inadmissible “applicants for admission” (including and especially illicit border crossers) until they’re either granted asylum or removed.
Biden’s ignored that congressional mandate since day one.
