Biden’s New Immigration Orders Look A Lot Like Trump’s

  • Last week, the Biden administration announced aggressive new border enforcement initiatives and draconian restrictions on asylum, some of which specifically target nationals from Haiti, Venezuela, Nicaragua and Cuba.
  • Biden said that his new plan will “limit disorderly and unsafe migration,” but the truth is far more harrowing. In fact, the Biden plan repackages some of the most troubling immigration and asylum policies from the Trump era and offers them up as novel solutions.
  • These policies didn’t work then, and they won’t work now. Instead, they offer an insidious, inhumane and illegal response to a complex problem.
