Breaking Thursday, the Biden administration announced a new policy of turning away migrants who cross the border illegally; specifically, Cubans, Haitians and Nicaraguans.

To begin “immediately” the administration is attempting to stop Venezuelans entering the U.S. illegally. The administration will now “accept 30,000 people per month from the four nations for two years and offer the ability to legally work, as long as they come legally, have eligible sponsors and pass vetting and background checks.”

Migrants from Venezuela, Cuba, Haiti and Nicaragua are the nations for “whom migrant border crossings have risen most sharply, with no easy way to quickly return migrants to their home countries” reports the Associated Press.

The Biden administration has failed to secure the border and manage record-breaking numbers of immigrants crossing the border illegally.

The Associated Press notes of the new policy:

The new policy could result in 360,000 people from these four nations lawfully entering the U.S. in a year. But currently, far more people from those countries are attempting to cross into the U.S. on foot. Migrants from those four countries were stopped 82,286 times in November alone.

The Biden administration has struggled to manage increasing numbers of migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border and has been reluctant to take hard-line measures that would resemble those of the Trump administration. That’s resulted in a barrage of criticism from Republicans who say the Democratic president is ineffective on border security.

Congressman Biggs to Unveil Impeachment Articles Against DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas

On Wednesday afternoon, Congressman Andy Biggs (R-AZ) will unveil his 118th Congress impeachment articles against Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. Biggs, along with dozens of Republican congressional members, will hold a press conference at The House Triangle in the United States Capitol.

At least 15 members of Congress will provide remarks advocating for the impeachment of Secretary Mayorkas. Congressman Biggs was the first member of Congress to introduce articles of impeachment against Mayorkas, as early as August 2021.

The escalating border crisis during the Biden administration has led Biggs and other members to conclude Mayorkas’ “dereliction of duty in protecting our nation’s borders constituted high crimes and misdemeanors.”

In late December, The Washington Examiner reported on Biggs’ cited three examples of how he said Mayorkas broke the law.

“First, Secretary Mayorkas has failed to maintain operational control of the border as required under the law,” he said, quoting the Secure Fence Act of 2006’s definition of operational control as “the prevention of all unlawful entries into the United States, including entries by terrorists, other unlawful aliens, instruments of terrorism, narcotics, and other contraband.”

He added: “Second, he may have lied to Congress when he testified that he was maintaining operational control of the border.

The third illegal action, Biggs said, was how Mayorkas had not detained illegal immigrants and instead released more than 1 million people into the U.S.

“The law is clear illegal aliens shall be detained,” Biggs said.
