The head of an immigration enforcement think tank says illegal aliens have already shown that they expect a much freer path into the U.S. when Joe Biden takes over.
Immigration enforcement advocates are concerned that the incoming administration will open the flood gates to thousands of illegal aliens who are hoping for a welcome mat that Donald Trump denied them.
Mark Krikorian, executive director of the Center for Immigration Studies (CIS), says prospective illegal immigrants have already shown this in the incident on the border bridge in El Paso last week.
"Several hundred people who had asylum applications pending but were forced to wait in Mexico according to Trump policy stormed the bridge and demanded to be let into the United States and were chanting, 'Biden, Biden, Biden,'" Krikorian reports. "They knew perfectly well that the Democrats are going to go easy on the them."
But as a new caravan makes its way north from Central America, Krikorian says they may hold back on allowing an illegal alien tsunami too quickly.
"Mexico, for instance, has already probably been threatened by the Biden people to keep its own troops on its southern border with Guatemala, which has been very effective in slowing non-Mexican flow of illegals up through Mexico up to the U.S.," the CIS executive adds. "So I expect the Biden people have told Mexico that they want to continue Trump threats to get Mexico to keep its troops down there, but Mexico isn't going to do that indefinitely."
Krikorian concludes that the Biden people simply do not have credibility to maintain President Trump's tough trade sanctions if Mexico does not comply.
