(AbsoluteNews.com) – When former President Donald Trump was in office, he had a number of policies in place to control the flow of immigrants across the border. He didn’t just let people claiming to be “refugees” pour over the border seeking asylum. The former president also started building a wall to limit the number of immigrants coming into the country to fill jobs Americans should have and implemented policies to ensure people who want to become citizens are not living off of welfare.
When President Joe Biden took over, he rescinded many of the policies that kept the country safe over the last four years. As a result, a crisis exploded on the border. Tens of thousands of migrants started flooding the Southern border, many of them unaccompanied minors and many with the virus. One Republican senator is now introducing a bill to try to get the border back under control.
Remain in Mexico
According to a May 13 exclusive report by Fox News, Senator Marsha Blackburn (R-TN) plans to introduce a bill that’ll reinstate Trump Migrant Protection Protocols. The congresswoman’s bill, called the Make the Migrant Protection Protocols Mandatory Act, would require immigrants who do not have proper documentation to remain in Mexico until a US immigration judge hears their case. It will also end the “catch and release” program, where undocumented immigrants are released into our communities after being caught by Border Patrol. The legislation also tightens restrictions on asylum seekers.
Senator Blackburn said that the president’s failed policies “have created a crisis at the southern border.” She claimed more than “half a million illegal aliens have poured” into the US since Biden became president and decided to get rid of Trump’s immigration policies.
It’s unlikely House Democrats will allow Blackburn’s bill to go to the floor for a vote. As long as the Left is in charge of Congress, there’s little Republicans can actually do to rein in the Biden administration. But that’s another example of why Conservatives think the 2022 midterms are so important. It’s their opportunity to undo some of the absurd policy changes made by Biden.
