With Republican’s hard set against handing the Democratic President ANYTHING to increase actions against Immigration and using it as political hammer ?
President Biden HAS to do SOMETHING….
The Biden administration is considering taking executive action to deter illegal migration across the southern border, according to two U.S. officials.
As passing legislation on border security in Congress appears unlikely, the plans under consideration signal that the White House wants to take action before numbers at the border, which have dropped in the past month, rise again as expected.
The plans have been under consideration for months, the officials said. In December, as Congress prepared to leave town for the holidays with no border solution, illegal crossings of the southwest border hit records at more than 10,000 per day.
The unilateral measures under consideration might upset some progressives in Congress, the officials said, but they noted that Democratic mayors who have asked for more help from the federal government to handle the influx of migrants in their cities would be pleased. The measures are still being drafted and are not expected to take place any time soon.
“It’s a plan B,” an official said. Both officials said doing nothing is not an option….
Biden faces growing political backlash, some of it from members of his own party, over his handling of the border as he campaigns for re-election. He plans to cite the Republican turnabout on the bipartisan border legislation as proof that for political reasons the GOP does not really want to solve the problem. But he is still vulnerable on the issue, trailing his likely 2024 opponent, former President Donald Trump, by more than 30 points on securing the border and controlling immigration, according to a new NBC News poll released this week.
The Biden administration has already taken multiple unilateral actions to try to stem the flow of migrants….
