Immigration’s ‘don’t ask, don’t tell’: Biden’s new DHS Policy makes illegal activity ‘irrelevant’

The Homeland Security Department’s citizenship agency has admitted a new policy makes illegal immigration behavior for those trying to enter and reenter the United states “irrelevant.” The Washington Times reports “making it back into the U.S. after being ousted is ‘irrelevant’ to an illegal immigrant’s eligibility to apply for a new legal status, the Homeland Security Department’s citizenship agency says in a new policy.”

Until now, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) would have denied the application “under a law that required onetime illegal immigrants to wait outside the country for up to 10 years before they would be eligible to apply to come back legally.”

“This is like the ‘don’t ask, don’t tell” said Emilio Gonzalez, who ran USCIS during the George W. Bush administration. “We won’t ask you where you’ve been during your inadmissible period, and you don’t tell us.’ It’s sheer craziness.”

“Sheer craziness” indeed. World Net Daily explains:

Previously, the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services would have denied any application for legal status under the so-called three-year/10-year rule. That meant that anyone without legal status for at least six months but less than a year had to depart and wait three years before applying to come back legally. Anyone in the country illegally for more than a year had to wait 10 years.

The new DHS policy literally spells out the complete dismissal of laws and regulations: “Noncitizen’s location during the statutory 3-year or 10-year period and the noncitizen’s manner of return to the United States during the statutory 3-year or 10-year period are irrelevant for purposes of determining inadmissibility.”

Biden admin working on ‘modernizing’ illegal immigration paperwork with Gov’t issued ID’s

A letter from 16 Republicans addressed to the acting Immigration and Customs Enforcement Agency (ICE) Director, expresses concern over a plan they are developing to give illegal immigrants government issued ID’s.

ICE says they are “modernizing” paperwork by giving cards, aka government issued ID’s, to illegal immigrants, which will have a photograph, biographic identifiers and “cutting-edge security features to the mutual benefit of the government and noncitizens” according to ICE.

“Currently, noncitizens receive paper documents from the federal government about their immigration status. Paper documents pose a security risk, are easily lost, and degrade rapidly in real-world use, creating inefficiencies for the government and noncitizens. Moving to a secure card will save the agency millions, free up resources, and ensure information is quickly accessible to DHS officials while reducing the agency’s FOIA backlog,” a spokesperson told the Epoch Times.

The letter from Republican leadership explains, “We are concerned that this pilot program is yet another Biden Administration move encouraging illegal immigration by rewarding illegal immigrants for breaking our laws.” Republicans are concerned that the ID’s could give illegal migrants ‘improper’ access to healthcare, housing and transportation.

The letter also alleges Biden’s plan is “apparently intended to permit illegal aliens to check in with ICE virtually instead of physically reporting to an ICE office,” noting that most illegal aliens fail to to check in as required as part of the Alternatives to Detention program (ATD).

“The ATD program’s failure to ensure illegal immigrants report to ICE is not a reason to issue them identification cards hoping the statistics improve, but instead an indication that more of these illegal border crossers should be detained during the pendency of removal proceedings,” the letter states.
