|While Republicans spent weeks cosplaying as military commandos for their photo ops on the border, President Biden and the administration have been hard at work proposing solutions and fixing the immigration system that Trump broke and Republicans ignored for years.
After Trump implemented the cruel and inhumane policy of ripping children away from their families, President Biden is hard at work reuniting families and repairing the damage Trump caused.
Washington Post: “Four migrant parents who were separated from their children at the U.S. border by the Trump administration and sent home alone will be allowed to return to the United States this week, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced Monday.”
Orlando Sentinel: “After three years of being separated from her Davenport family, Alejandra Juarez is coming home. Juarez is the wife of a U.S. Marine veteran whose traumatic deportation scene at Orlando International Airport in 2018 made headlines worldwide. On Monday, the U.S. Department of Homeland Security granted her a temporary reprieve known as humanitarian parole.”
Since President Biden has taken action to restore humanity and order to our broken immigration system, the number of unaccompanied children at the border has fallen dramatically over the past few weeks.
CBS News: “Number of unaccompanied migrant children held by Border Patrol falls 88% in 5 weeks”
Has anyone heard from Republicans on immigration lately? For a while it seemed like politicizing children’s lives was their electoral strategy for 2022 and beyond, but it seems to have quickly faded from their minds now that President Biden has delivered solutions.
Washington Post’s Jennifer Rubin: “But for the most part, immigration seems to have disappeared from media coverage. What happened? CNN on Friday thankfully caught us up to speed: ‘The number of unaccompanied migrant children held in jail-like conditions by US Customs and Border Protection dropped nearly 84% in the span of a month, according to a White House official, underscoring the significant progress made by the administration after reaching record high custody figures’ Moreover, there has been ‘a nearly 80% reduction in time spent in Border Patrol detention.’”
