100+ House Democrats: Biden's border policies not crazy enough!

A Sept. 10 letter signed by 103 House Democrats urges President Biden to make changes that would provide even more incentives for illegal aliens to manipulate U.S. immigration policy – such as one allowing "asylum seekers" to "obtain work authorization from the moment they file their asylum claim."

The letter-signers, including U.S. Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, D-N.Y., and other left-wing congressional members known as "the Squad," complains that the "positive legislative reforms in immigration" they favor "are unlikely this [Congress] due to extreme MAGA Republican opposition."

The swipe at "MAGA Republicans" takes a page from Biden's playbook demonizing the vast majority of Republicans who support former President Trump.

The House Democrats' letter to Biden and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas (like a previous, similar letter from several Democrat senators to the Departments of Homeland Security and Justice) takes up the cause of "asylum seekers" – while completely ignoring the unparalleled crisis that has been caused by illegal aliens abusing the asylum-seeking process by making false claims about their alleged persecution and then not showing up for their subsequent immigration hearing.

In an August 2020 press release in support of increasing the penalty on illegal alien asylum cheaters, U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, laid out the problem: "The unsustainable increase in illegal entries at our southern border are due in part to the misconception by illegal immigrants that they will be able to submit a fraudulent asylum application to get a court date, dodge their scheduled court date, and then continue to reside in the United States free of consequences."
