(AbsoluteNews.com) – Workplace raids have long been one of the most effective ways to round up illegal immigrants. The enforcement operations also help free up jobs for American workers. But President Joe Biden’s administration has decided to put an end to effective immigration policies.
On Tuesday, October 12, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued a memo informing Acting ICE Director Tae Johnson that workplace raids would stop. Instead, the secretary said the agency is going to focus its attention on “unscrupulous employers who exploit the vulnerability of undocumented workers.” He claims the employers pay low wages, provide unsafe work conditions, and facilitate child exploitation and human trafficking.
At the Secretary’s direction, DHS will:
✅Develop & update policies to support enforcement of labor standards
✅Prioritize workplace enforcement against unscrupulous employers
✅End mass worksite enforcement operations

Immigration advocacy groups are happy about the administration’s decision. Conservatives feel entirely different. Rep. Ronny Jackson (R-TX) accused the president of “handcuffing our brave ICE officers” with the new policy. Rep. Mo Brooks (R-AL) said Biden is encouraging illegal immigration.
The Socialist Democrats continue to show that every action they take on immigration is to enable and encourage more illegal immigration. Simply put, they seek to import votes without the slightest concern for the damage done to America and American citizens.

Instead of solving the problem of companies hiring illegal immigrants by arresting the aliens who aren’t supposed to be here and punishing the employers, Biden has chosen to take the most ineffective approach — allow the illegals to remain and punish the employers.
