The Biden administration keeps pretending that it didn’t want the mass migration crisis that it did everything possible to make happen, including fighting in the courts to enable the end of Title 42.
And the endgame, an even more massive surge of illegal aliens is everything that the administration desperately wanted. The illegals are coming because Biden has made illegal migration into a more sensible immigration approach than going through the system.
As Joe Edlow at Heritage notes, “”New reports indicate that U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services has been ordered to shift its staffing to meet the higher demands at the border… This move is not intended to control the border; it is aimed at more quickly processing illegal aliens into the United States. As the administration has continually ignored statutory mandates to detain aliens claiming credible fear, this move is nothing more than a veiled attempt to keep the pipeline unclogged for the free-flowing open border.”
“Since the earliest days of the Biden administration, policies and regulations have been designed to ease procedural “burdens” in context to credible fear and asylum. This personnel shift will support those efforts and ensure that those claiming fear, regardless of the veracity of the claim, will witness a streamlined process. They will be welcomed, interviewed rapidly, and given work authorization—the No. 1 goal of most of those coming here illegally…
Those who have complied with the law and are awaiting adjudications of lawful applications are now shelved, as immigration authorities direct the government’s resources toward those who disregard our laws and those who make baseless protection claims along the southwestern border.
And the pending application caseload will only worsen. Almost 9 million applications await adjudication, including more than 700,000 asylum applications. To add insult to injury, the Biden administration refuses to charge a fee for asylum applications.
That means those lawful applicants seeking a green card or a change in their non-immigrant status are not only forced to wait longer to have their cases decided, but also have to subsidize the asylum applications that are frequently fraudulent and should not be in the pipeline to begin with.”
So why come to America legally?
There’s no actual reason to do so. Invading the country illegally produces much faster and cheaper results than following the law and working within the system. Why go through extended interviews and pay fees when you can just show up in a huge mass and then be released and pick up a work permit and refugee funds?
There’s a massive surge because the Biden regime is Cloward-Pivening the immigration system, attracting a mass migratory surge by making it a more preferable process than any legal one, while acting like this is not exactly the outcome that it had desired all along.
What’s happening at the border isn’t “chaos”, as many claim, it’s the implementation of a plan.
