President Joe Biden, eager to solidify his position as the anti-Trump, is considering a plan to bring back over 1,000 illegal immigrants who were deported under the previous administration. In so doing, the president’s team is mulling a move that would do for illegal aliens what it promised to do for African American voters who were instrumental in putting Biden in office.
Illegal Aliens Lawyer Up
According to Breitbart News, the president is developing a plan that would provide amnesty and reparations to illegal immigrants deported by former President Donald Trump. The report claims:
“The Biden administration is currently negotiating a settlement by which attorneys with the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) are representing deported illegal alien parents and their children who remain in the United States.”
The immigrants who would benefit from this plan crossed the southern border in violation of U.S. immigration laws with their children. After being apprehended by the authorities, they were prosecuted and deported while their children were placed with Health and Human Services (HHS). This policy was known as “Zero Tolerance.”
“The federal government has been separating adults from children at the border since before 2001,” according to Breitbart. The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) is hoping to persuade the administration to grant amnesty to the parents who were separated from their children.
A Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spokesperson told NBC News that the president is:
“actively working to develop a system for processing and reunifying over a thousand families and to set up a system to provide mental health support and stability to thousands more families who are here in the United States and still trying to heal from the trauma caused by their separation.”
This plan is part of an overall effort to grant amnesty to over 11 million illegal immigrants residing in the country and provide them with a path to citizenship. Biden’s plan would allow illegal immigrants who were deported under Trump to fly back and obtain amnesty.
Reparations For Lawbreakers But Not Black Americans?
During the campaign, Biden made overtures to black Americans, promising he would support a study into the issue of reparations. On his campaign page, it states:
“As Biden has said in this campaign, a Biden Administration will support a study of reparations. Biden will begin on day one of his Administration to address the systemic racism that persists across our institutions today. That’s why he developed education, climate change, and health care policies, among others, that will root out this systemic racism and ensure that all Americans have a fair shot at living the American dream.”
While Biden supports a conversation on addressing government-caused inequality between black and white Americans, he has not exactly championed the issue after taking office. Indeed, he has been a vociferous proponent of helping migrants, most of which are Latinos and even Asian victims of hate crimes. However, when it comes to the black community, he has been curiously quiet.
Whether one agrees with reparations, it is clear Biden is not planning to address issues faced by the black community in any meaningful way. It is in keeping with the Democratic tradition: Make promises to black Americans and then ignore them once they have cast their votes. Unfortunately, with no real political competition, left-leaning politicians will continue to get away with this brazen duplicity.
