CORPUS CHRISTI, Texas — President Joe Biden wasted no time in taking motion in the direction of ‘immigration points’. The division of Homeland Safety mentioned they’ve ‘suspended’ the ‘Migrant Safety Protocols,’ or higher often known as the ‘Stay in Mexico’ program.
Political Science professor, Travis Braidwood mentioned the rationale this program was put in place at first was as a result of the federal government was afraid that asylum seekers wanting American citizenship would get to america and disappear leading to a missed courtroom assembly.
Dr. Braidwood mentioned this was one thing that nearly by no means occurred.
‘When you take a look at precise numbers on this, this was not the case. In reality, the overwhelming majority of individuals searching for asylum or searching for immigration into the nation by way of these border-crossings do present as much as their assembly,’ mentioned Dr. Braidwood.
Dr. Braidwood mentioned now, asylum seekers shouldn’t have to attend in Mexico for his or her courtroom date. They will wait right here in america.
“When you have been in america earlier than the date of November 1st, we’re not going to deport you until you’ve dedicated some type of crime, otherwise you’re a violent felon, as an alternative you may stay right here to search for, to search for your date,” he added.
Dr. Braidwood added, for a number of years, it has been getting increasingly more troublesome for asylum seekers to get citizenships right here within the U.S.
Due to this, he mentioned we will count on President Biden making extra of a push to perform this.
“You’ll be able to count on, we’re gonna see within the coming days and weeks a flurry of latest orders and insurance policies from the Biden administration making an attempt to extent actions in the direction of an asylum granting insurance policies,” mentioned Dr. Braidwood.
Dr. Braidwood mentioned President Biden must work carefully with congress to make massive modifications occur whereas he is in workplace and even when congress approves drastic modified sooner or later, the method to implement may take some time.
