A federal official has issued a warning about the consequences of a Joe Biden administration – consequences that deeply concern a border enforcement group.
In an interview conducted one week before Election Day, the acting head of U.S. Customs and Border Protection, Mark Morgan, warned that the southern border may experience an "invasion" under a Biden administration.
"If what has been accomplished [under the Trump administration] is undone, we're not just going to see another immigration crisis; we're going to see an invasion – and I fully believe that," he stated.
Morgan listed incentives that he argues would contribute to migrant surges at the southern border: providing health care to illegal aliens, halting border wall construction, and removing Trump administration asylum abuse policies. Such initiatives, he added, are likely to be implemented under the Biden administration.
Ira Mehlman is a spokesman for the Federation for American Immigration Reform.
"Vice President Biden has said that he would reverse many of the policies that the Trump administration has put in place to control the border," the FAIR spokesman tells OneNewsNow – citing as one example: stopping construction of the border wall.
"[A President Biden also] would end the agreements that have been made with Central American governments with Mexico to prevent the mass flow of people coming to the border fraudulently seeking asylum here in the United States," he tells OneNewsNow.
"[And] he would not do anything to curtail sanctuary policies that provide protection for people who come into the United States illegally – he would not detain asylum seekers."
According to the acting CBP head, the crisis that would result from lax enforcement of border protections – combined with the Biden-proposed incentives – would "pale" in comparison with earlier crises along the border.
