According to an analysis by the Migration Policy Institute, President Joe Biden signed an astonishing 94 executive actions on immigration in his first 100 days.
Biden and his administration moved quickly to open up the borders to more illegal aliens and non-citizens by dismantling immigration enforcement measures put into place by former President Trump.
After Biden ended Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy and other measures to reduce the flow of noncitizens crossing the border, unattended migrants rushed the border.
Under Biden, the Department of Homeland Security ordered Immigrations and Customs Enforcement (ICE) to stop targeting illegal aliens for removal unless they pose gang involvement or significant criminal charges. ICE cases are also subject to review, slowing, or reversing enforcement actions.
As a result of Biden’s new “sanctuary country orders, criminal illegal aliens are getting released from prison.
As a result, Migration Policy Institute (MPI) reports, ICE arrests have decreased by more than 60 percent under Biden from the last full months of detention during the Trump administration in February 2020, before the pandemic.
Biden has extended temporary Protected Status for 320,000 Venezuelans and 1,600 Burmese. Biden has ended Trump’s public charge rule requiring immigrants to be financially independent and Trump’s travel and visa restrictions.
Biden scrapped a more difficult citizenship civics test enacted by Trump for immigrants.
The speed of Biden’s executive actions has dramatically exceeded the first 100 days of the Trump administration, and the former president enacted less than 30 executive actions on immigration.
