The Biden administration has announced that it will further limit the ability of the nation's immigration law enforcement officers to carry out their public safety mission by gutting the use of expedited removal, a critical enforcement tool that creates efficiency in immigration enforcement.

... Biden’s nominee to the U.S. Supreme Court, Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson, blocked the Trump administration’s use of expedited removal in 2019 before being reversed by the D.C. Circuit. Should she be confirmed to the high court, there is every reason to believe Judge Jackson will side against the use of expedited removal and similar enforcement practices at every opportunity.

The Biden administration is making it clear, once again, that its goal is creating porous borders and undermining the job of law enforcement. The administration has done everything in its power to ensure that criminal aliens will go free in our communities and innocent Americans will suffer....

Under the Biden administration, the American people have already witnessed the designation of most locations in American communities as "protected places" (i.e., sanctuaries) for criminal aliens, the extreme narrowing of arrest and removal guidelines for ICE officers (and the administration's decision to hide the results of their policy by not issuing ICE's annual report, which has been issued by every other administration for at least a decade), a massive increase in illegal immigration across the nation's borders, the flying of illegal aliens to towns throughout the nation, a dramatic decrease in deportations, the near abandonment of cooperation with local law enforcement resulting in the release of dangerous criminal aliens, and the encouragement of welfare use by the foreign-born, just to name a few acts.
