Two Democrats, Representative Pramila Jayapal of Washington and Senator Cory Booker of New Jersey have found a way to combine two extremely progressive policies to create even worse outcomes.
The Democratic leaders are sponsoring the Dignity for Detained Immigrants Act, which would allow for “vulnerable” migrants to “not be detained,” Fox News reported. Vulnerable groups, according to the bill, include migrants who identify as “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or intersex,” don’t speak English, or have experienced “severe trauma.”
“This is a measure that will go a long way to restore humanity and dignity to the immigration system.” Jayapal said.
The Washington Free Beacon notes that under the Democrat proposed bill, the Department of Homeland Security could only detain a migrant identified as “vulnerable” if the agency could prove that it is “unreasonable or not practicable to place the alien in a community-based supervision program.”
The bill contains a host of other provisions that makes it more difficult to detain migrants of any status, imposing, for instance, a “presumption that the alien should be released” during custody hearings.
The border crisis has intensified since President Joe Biden took office. Border Patrol agents reported 162,317 migrant encounters in March, which was an increase of 32,000 migrants from February. The Washington Times reported that eleven of the migrants were listed on the terror watch list.
Title 42, the policy allowing agents to turn illegal immigrants away due to the pandemic, will expire on May 11. Biden’s enforcement of it has come into question, with new reporting showing the administration accepted 99 percent of migrants’ requests made through an immigration app for exemptions from the policy, adds the Washington Free Beacon.
