And he did sign them — all 17 of them, an unprecedented number of executive actions taken by any U.S. president before him (Biden has signed many more than that since).
Among those first orders were the seeds of Biden’s ‘Put America At Risk Again’ plan to reopen our borders to hordes of migrants from the third world. That’s right; the ink had even dried on this executive orders, and America became far less safe than it was only moments before, according to a former top Trump immigration official.
“With the stroke of a pen, President Biden made this country less safe,” former Customs and Border Protection chief Mark Morgan told Breitbart News this week. “It’s pure politics over public safety.”
“Look, I know what our team said to the transition team,” Morgan added. “I know the facts and data and analysis that was provided. I know what they told them and gave them that showed that the wall works.”
Ah, right. Trump’s border wall. Yeah, Biden canceled funding for that, too, just like Democrats canceled funding for the Secure Fence Act of 2006 after they took control of Congress in 2008.
Morgan went on to suggest that Biden’s incoming immigration team also didn’t bother consulting the Border Patrol or CBP officials either about what policies were working, citing Biden’s order ending the Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP), which is also known as the “Remain in Mexico” program.
“So this was this is something we’ve been saying was the most dangerous thing that he’s been saying all along, that he was going to get rid of on Day One, and that’s what he did,” said Morgan. “That policy [MPP] alone attributed to the absolute reduction of [migrant] families coming up from Central America.”
Between May 2019 and February 2020, the CBP recorded an astounding 92 percent decline in the number of families from Central America crossing illegally into the U.S. (Related: Biden sends open borders bill to Congress on first day in office: Can’t wait to swear in millions of new Democratic voters.)
In March, Morgan said during a press conference:
Back in May, 61 percent of those we were encountering were families, the majority of those from the Northern Triangle countries. Because, again, they (transnational criminal organizations — TCOs) knew our system was broken. If you came to the U.S. with a kid you were going to be released into the interior of the U.S.
So, the major goal that we set out to do with the President’s strategy with respect to this was to decrease the flow of families from the northern triangle countries. We have succeeded nine months in a row those numbers, families from Northern triangles have gone down and continue to go down.
“It’s just frustrating what I’m seeing right now,” Morgan told Breitbart. “To me, it’s all politics. It’s all about politics. And our country’s less safe because of it, and it’s just disgusting.”
In recent days, thousands of migrants from Honduras forcefully crossed into Guatemala, telling journalists that the reason they were headed to the U.S. was because they believe Biden would ensure they were let in.
That, Morgan said, is a direct result of the president’s “open borders strategy.”
“Don’t take my word for it,” he said. “Listen to the migrants themselves. Quote, ‘Biden told us we have 100 days to get to the US border.’”
Morgan went on to note that Trump’s immigration policies weren’t about politics.
“It was about law and order,” he said. “It’s about the safety and sovereignty of this great nation.”
