Biden’s new Bizarro border move just waves in more illegal migrants

In the Superman comics there was something called Bizarro World, where everything was the opposite of what was expected — the planet was cube-shaped instead of a sphere, Superman’s counterpart was a villain, and so on.

The Biden administration has created a Bizarro World immigration policy. The law as written places the burden of proof on a foreigner to show why he should be let in — but that burden is now on immigration officers to show why someone should be kept out.

A rule called “expedited removal,” which is supposed to speed the deportation of border-jumpers, has been transformed into a way to let them in. The system intended to keep track of illegal immigrants to make sure they show up for their deportation hearings is being turned into a taxpayer-funded welfare program to provide migrants with — I am not making this up — “mental health services” and “cultural orientation programs.”

The latest example of this is a new proposed regulation on asylum. . . .
