On Sunday, Breitbart reported that the Biden administration has reversed the Trump administration’s policy that directed the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to stop fast-tracking work permits for border crossers and illegal aliens.
The article reports:
The rule change made sure that border crossers and illegal aliens would need to be in the U.S. for at least a year before applying for work permits through the U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) agency.
Now, as Reuters reports, Biden is repealing the Trump-era rule change to ensure that hundreds of thousands of border crossers and illegal aliens his DHS releases every few months into the U.S. interior can now more quickly secure work permits to take American jobs.
As part of the reversal, border crossers and illegal aliens who crossed in between ports of entry or have been convicted of certain crimes will now be eligible for work permits after residing in the U.S. for at least 150 days.
Biden’s push to more quickly get border crossers and illegal aliens into American jobs comes as 11.5 million Americans are jobless but want full-time employment and another 4.1 million Americans are stuck in part-time jobs wanting full-time work.
The change in policy by the Biden administration will only encourage more economic migration. There is nothing wrong with people seeking to come to America to pursue a better life; however, we need to encourage people to come here legally. Making it easy for illegal aliens to find work quickly does not benefit Americans–it lowers wages for working Americans and limits the number of jobs available to Americans. It doen nothing to help Americans realize their dreams.
