Mayorkas Wants to Grant Asylum Without Congress Oversight

March 25, 2022

Open-borders subversive and Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has released draft rules that will allow low-level officials to quickly and quietly award asylum and citizenship to economic migrants without oversight from judges or Congress, according to Breitbart News.

“What they’re doing is giving low-level bureaucrats authority equivalent to Congress as a whole to decide how many foreigners should move to the United States and become American citizens,” said Mark Krikorian, director of the Center for Immigration Studies. “The goal of the regulation is to dramatically increase the number of people successfully getting asylum and to speed that process up as much as possible.”

The 512-page March 24 regulation converts the preliminary “Credible Fear Interview” process for new arrivals into a fast-track, full-scale asylum hearing, where migrants can get political asylum in a face-to-face interview with a low-level agency official, Breitbart notes: “Under current rules, migrants can ask for a Credible Fear Interview. If approved, they can stay in the country for a few years while a courtroom judge decides if their evidence justifies the award of asylum. The award of asylum is a huge prize — it allows migrants the right to take jobs, rent homes, become a citizen, and bring relatives into the United State via chain migration.”

“This will only encourage more illegal immigration and fraudulent asylum claims, which is the Biden administration’s end goal,” said a statement from Dan Stein, the president of the Federation of American Immigration Reform.

“It’s set up to maximize the share of people getting asylum,” Krikorian added. “This is yet another way anti-borders forces can pry open the borders of the United States.”
