New details are emerging about what will happen at the southern border once COVID restrictions are lifted on illegal immigration.   The Feds are expecting 18,000 border-jumpers a day.  That’s more than a half a million a month.

Three states have sued to get the COVID restrictions reinstated.  In addition, Texas Governor Greg Abbott said he will  bus illegal aliens to the steps of the U.S. Capitol in Washington, and Florida Governor Ron DeSantis said he will send them to Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware, as both reacted to the expected surge in illegal immigration.

So, some are fighting the Feds, but the fix is in.  All that talk about addressing root causes of illegal immigration was just talk.  The Biden administration is rolling out the welcome mat for the new wave of lawless border-jumpers.

A leaked DHS memo shows the administration will use “broadscale release mechanisms” to open the floodgates.  In plain English, this means illegal aliens will be released on their own recognizance or with a notice to appear which, everybody knows, is often ignored.  This memo follows a long list of policy changes the Biden administration has made to open the border since it’s been in office, changes I’ve documented in previous commentaries.

But the administration isn’t done yet; the Feds want to open the door even wider to illegal aliens.  The administration is in discussions to roll out a smartphone app to do pre-screening BEFORE illegal aliens jump the border.  Plans are also being laid to spend big on illegal aliens once they arrive:  $69 million for medical support at 63 locations; $32 million for medical claims; $29 million for a new Office of the Chief Medical Officer; $140 million for a new processing center; $97 million for flights and ground transportation; $24 million for humanitarian relief necessitated by opening the border; $25 million for emergency family shelter beds; $527 million for alternatives to detention; $12 million for victim assistance necessitated by causing the immigrant crime problem in the first place; $375 million to administer looser asylum standards; and $389 million to process the application backlog caused by its own policies.  By the way, there are more than 8 million pending applications – 8 MILLION.  And healthcare for detained illegal aliens cost U.S. taxpayers $316 million last year.

The Biden administration is releasing single adult aliens into the interior by the hundreds every day.  They’re given a cellphone so they can be tracked, but there’s nothing the Feds can do if the aliens toss the phones.  The administration is also allowing illegal alien criminals to be released into the general population after they finish their sentences, instead of taking them into custody for deportation as federal law requires.  The Biden administration had wanted to limit deportation to serious criminals, but a court partially blocked that for now.  Finally, as previously reported, the administration is moving to take immigration courts out of the asylum process and have low-level bureaucrats quickly rubber-stamp asylum claims on the spot when illegal aliens arrive, without any serious examination.

A lot of these new changes ignore federal laws passed by Congress.  So where is Congress in all this?  Why aren’t the House and Senate holding oversight hearings to protect their power and insist Joe Biden faithfully execute the laws, as he is constitutionally required to do?  Oh, I forgot.  They’re controlled by Democrats, too.

A reckoning is coming.
