Mayorkas Will Allow DHS to Grant Asylum at the Border

August 21, 2021

Breitbart News reports that President Joe Biden’s deputies at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) have drafted a rule to help woke agency officials give fast-track asylum and citizenship to “economic migrants.”

“We are building an immigration system that is designed to ensure due process, respect human dignity, and promote equity,” DHS secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement. “This proposed rule joins a number of actions the Biden-Harris Administration is taking to build a fair, orderly, and humane immigration system, including by expanding pathways to apply for [U.S. residency from their] in home countries.”

The rule would worsen “the current border disaster by all-but-ensuring that aliens who have entered illegally and claimed a fear of harm are released into the United States,” said Andrew Arthur, a former immigration judge who now works with the Center for Immigration Studies. He added that the Mayorkas plan would open an entirely new gate in the nation’s border by allowing lower-level officials to interview migrants and then grant them asylum, even without a government lawyer to quiz the asylum applicant.

“Under this plan, pro-illegal bureaucrats just freely hand out asylum [approvals] at the border,” tweeted former Trump aide Stephen Miller. “Biden’s new proposed reg would effectively turn our border into a citizenship factory for illegals,” he added.
