By Breitbart. Progressive pro-migration groups have pushed President Joe Biden to announce that he wants to dramatically raise the inflow of refugees up to 62,500 by October 1.
Biden’s decision reverses the April 16 announcement of a 15,000 goal for 2021 that was recommended by his advisers, who are concerned that Biden’s poll numbers will be further damaged amid the migration crisis. The 15,000 goal was bitterly denounced by Democrat-affiliated pro-migration groups, including the FWD.us group of investors created by Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg.
“I now determine, consistent with my Administration’s prior consultation with the Congress, that raising the number of admissions permissible for FY 2021 to 62,500 is justified by grave humanitarian concerns and is otherwise in the national interest,” Biden announced late Monday.
The high goal “sends the important message that the United States remains a safe harbor for some of the most vulnerable people in the world,” Biden’s statement said.
The decision will also help the government and pro-refugee groups boost the refugee inflow to 125,000 migrants next year. That number would be eight times President Donald Trump’s 2021 goal of 15,000 refugees. (Read more from “Biden Bends to Pressure, Drastically Increases Refugee Inflow in 2021” HERE)
DHS Secretary Admits the Truth About Biden’s Border Crisis
By Townhall. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas finally admitted during an interview with CBS This Morning Monday that illegal border crossings have been “extraordinarily high.”
“In late March you are correct, the numbers were extraordinarily high and we had over 5,700 young children, unaccompanied children, in the custody of the Border Patrol,” Mayorkas said, adding that numbers for April 2021 will likely be high. “The numbers remain high. Whether they are as high as March remains undetermined.”
