Charlotte, NC — On Monday, the Biden administration announced that it is taking measures to allow any families separated under the Trump administration to be reunited in the US and to remain in the US after reunited. The move was announced by Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.
According to The Hill, 2800 families were separated in 2018 and approximately 500 children were not reunited with families while Trump was in office. While many will not have an issue with the attempts to reunite the families, the concern is the move to allow them to remain in the US.
The move by the Biden administration almost has the sounds of immigration reparations. Since these families were separated, we’re going to give you free access to all that the United States has to offer as payment for your suffering. That’s the wrong move here entirely.
The reason for the separation was due to a violation of federal law. The separation was not the ideal solution to the problem for sure, but the “zero-tolerance” policy of the Trump administration did wonders to help reduce illegal immigration at the border.
The desire of anyone should not be to see that children and families are separated, but there must be measures in place to protect our borders and our immigration laws. Biden has promised to address immigration and is in the process of making a move for amnesty for millions.
