Former Customs and Border Protection Commissioner Mark Morgan said on Saturday that the Biden government has resumed its “catch and release” policy, which shows that they are “promoting illegal immigration.”
“In 2019, one of the driving factors behind the unprecedented crisis is that we have these major vulnerabilities. One of them is that if you reach the border, you will never be released to the United States. Hear it again,” Morgan told “Cavuto Live”.
Morgan said that it turned out that there was a catch and release loophole, and claimed that this is not a “left and right” issue.
“Under the Trump administration, it was largely cut off due to the immigration protection agreement, the “stay in Mexico”
The Department of Homeland Security of the Federal Republic warns of an impending border health crisis, it is duty-bound
Morgan continued: “Now the plan is revoked, but those who have joined the plan-now those who are actively allowed in the United States to do everything they are doing are passing through the port of entry are now allowed to enter.”
Morgan said that not only allowed illegal immigrants to enter the country, but the Biden administration cancelled ICE’s power to legally arrest them when crossing the border illegally.
Republicans on the House Oversight Committee are issuing an alert to the Biden administration about an imminent health crisis on the southern border-warning that President Biden’s “reckless” policies and rhetoric are feeding it.
“The Biden administration’s policy of restricting immigration enforcement and weakening border security, together with its proposal for an amnesty for large numbers of illegal immigrants, sends a signal to the world that our immigration law has hardly been violated, if any,” the 18 members of the supervisory committee Written in a letter to the Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Majorcas.
Since taking office, Biden has stopped building the wall on the southern border, terminated the Migration Protection Agreement (MPP) that kept migrants in Mexico, and tried to impose a 100-day moratorium on deportation-even though it has been blocked as a lawsuit Response. He also signed an order to revoke the order of the then President Trump, thus ending the so-called “catch and release” policy.
The lawmakers pointed out that a November court injunction prevented the deportation of Question 42-for public health reasons, illegal immigrants who were driven to the border could be quickly applied to unaccompanied children, and the Biden administration subsequently formulated the UAC Exceptions.
Republicans also pointed out that Biden and Congressional Democrats announced the bill this week, which will provide naturalization for millions of illegal immigrants and remove asylum restrictions.

“Look, there has been a lot of discussion about alternative detention, but what’s happening now is not even being used, and we know that is still a failure. No matter they wear ankle bracelets, they will fall off without showing up, Morgan said.
Morgan went on to say: “There is actually no surveillance… Now, due to new enforcement restrictions, ICE will be banned. If [illegal immigrants] Do not attend the hearing, [ICE is] They will be prohibited from hunting down and detaining them, and trying to delete them. I mean, we have seen a new era and our country is promoting illegal immigration in this country. “
