Biden Creates Task Force for Separated Families, Deads Trump “Zero Tolerance” Border Crackdown!
Now that we have a REAL man who deserves to be President, Joe Biden is working fast and swiftly to FIX everything Trump destroyed. Read on since President Biden Trump Border Crackdown…
President Biden on Tuesday signed three executive orders to set up a task force to locate migrant families separated under the Trump administration.
Joe Biden is working on reshaping U.S. border and asylum policy and review restrictions made to the legal immigration system over the past four years.
Here is the report:
One order established an inter-agency government task force led by the secretary of homeland security that will be charged with identifying all migrant children who were separated from their parents during the Trump administration’s “zero-tolerance” border crackdown and earlier pilot programs.
Another responsibility for the task force will be to facilitate the reunification of families who remain separated. Advocates who have been working to track down separated families for over two years have yet to locate the parents of more than 600 children. Many of those parents were deported to Mexico and Central America without their children.
During a briefing with reporters on Monday, an administration official said the task force will examine, on a case-by-case basis, whether separated families could be eligible for parole, visas or other immigration benefits to enable their reunification.
Another directive addressed the processing of asylum-seekers along the border with Mexico, committed the Biden administration to helping curb the poverty and violence that fuel U.S.-bound migration from Central America and ordered officials to consider revoking multiple Trump-era asylum limits.
The order mandated a review of the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, which required 70,000 asylum-seekers to wait outside U.S. territory while their cases were adjudicated. As part of the review, one administration official said, the government will look into how the U.S. should continue to process the cases of those asylum-seekers still waiting in Mexico, while prioritizing those deemed to be the most vulnerable. – CBS News
The official said, using an acronym for the Trump administration’s official term for the policy.
As we look at ways to implement the president’s policy for a different and more humane review of people requesting asylum, that MPP population will certainly be taken into account because of the length of time they’ve waited and the conditions they’re waiting in.
Basically, the order also called for the revival of an Obama-era initiative that allowed some at-risk Central American minors to come to the U.S. legally if they had family in the country with legal status. Former President Trump ended the program in 2017.
