The Biden administration has taken a huge step back in terms of immigration policy, saying they’re building a 20-mile wall to try and stop the latest wave of migrants crossing the border.
On Wednesday night, they announced they were waiving 26 laws to start building the new wall that President Donald Trump had started. The Biden White House had been slamming Trump’s tough immigration policies, and even canceled the wall construction when he took office.
On his first day in office, Biden even declared that building a wall wasn’t ‘a serious policy solution.’
But the recent acceleration in migrant crossings and pressure to deal with the crisis has now forced the federal government to change direction.
The U-turn comes as Democrat-run cities such as New York and Chicago demand Biden do more to stop border crossers ending up in their communities and straining resources.
