President Joe Biden has yanked 65 pending executive orders left over from the Trump administration. Many of these orders dealt with key national security matters as well as immigration.
You just know Biden really got a thrill up his leg doing this. He doesn’t care at all about our national security or about the danger posed to our nation through illegal immigration.
Several of the withdrawals strike down orders that would protect American jobs by tightening immigration restrictions and eliminate proposed oversight regulations on how China-backed Confucius Institutes operate on campus. The Biden administration selectively cut the orders, as some pending Trump administration actions remain under review.
Biden withdrew one Department of Homeland Security regulation that would bar foreign nationals with deportation orders from working. Under current law, outgoing aliens released from custody can still seek legal employment. The proposed—and now withdrawn—Trump executive order would increase protections for American workers by striking down such an expansive employment policy.
Rep. Ronny Jackson (R., Texas) blasted Biden’s rollback on Trump-era regulations as “disheartening” and “disingenuous.”
“President Biden’s approach to immigration is both disheartening and predictable given the hypocrisy of the left. In less than one month, the Biden administration has steamrolled commonsense immigration policies simply because they were tied to President Trump,” Jackson went on to say. “Clearly, Democrats are not serious about working across the aisle. Disingenuous attempts to legislate in a bipartisan manner are bad for effective policymaking and, in turn, for the American people.”
Robert Law, the director of regulatory affairs and policy at the Center for Immigration Studies said that these reversals will do serious damage to our security and the economy.
“What is very apparent is that there is nothing moderate about the direction of immigration policy that the Biden administration, through his various political appointees, is pursuing,” the director stated. “If there’s any immigration regulation or policy that the Trump administration approved that should be carried on, you would think it would be something like this.”
Another one of the proposed immigration orders struck down by the Biden administration would have gotten rid of the ability of certain visa holders to seek out employment.
It’s already pretty clear by doing this — adding in the whole mess with the Keystone XL pipeline — that Biden really doesn’t give a rip what happens to the hard working people of this country.
Sad this is the man leading our nation for the next four years.
