“This is practically like ‘don’t ask, don’t tell.’ We won’t inquire about your travels during your inadmissible time and you won’t disclose any information to us. It’s absolute madness,” said Emilio Gonzalez, who led USCIS under George W. Bush.
It turns out that the DHS has reversed its position on previous border crossings. The agency now claims it is “irrelevant” whether illegal immigrants returned to the United States after being deported. Unless the illegals had been outside of the country for ten years, these applications would have been automatically rejected by USCIS under prior rules. The new meaning assigned to the requirement has reversed this former policy.
The Department of Homeland Security acknowledges that the border situation is at its worst point in decades or perhaps ever, as border agents revolt against Biden’s repulsive policies.
“On Wednesday, DHS Sec. Alejandro Mayorkas met with the Border Patrol officers from the Yuma sector, and it was a disastrous encounter in which border security personnel expressed their extreme dissatisfaction with Biden’s policies.”
A meeting in which Mayorkas acknowledged the anxieties of border patrol agents was recorded and obtained by Townhall.
The border patrol agents were unimpressed by Mayorkas’ empty promises. One border patrol officer turned his back on Mayorkas in disgust.
“I’ll just state, you can turn your back on me, but I will not turn my back on you,” Mayorkas responded when the agent treated him rudely.
