Biden’s Immigration Plan: Reversal of Trump’s Accomplishments

Joe joins with Bernie and proposes the most radical immigration plan in U.S. history.

This past Wednesday, Joe Biden released his “Unity Plan.” The joint collaboration effort with Bernie Sanders is a 110-page document that, for all intents and purposes, adopts Sanders’s socialism as Biden’s policy platform.

Of special import in this platform is Biden’s plan for addressing illegal immigration — or rather his plan to essentially make illegal immigration … legal. Right out of the gate, the plan pledges a 100-day moratorium on all deportations. Because, Biden claims, the “systemic racism” has infected “our immigration system, including the policies at our borders and ports of entry, detention centers and within immigration law enforcement agencies, policies and operations.”

During this initial moratorium, Biden would send out a cadre of overseers to observe Border Patrol and Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers to ensure that none of the “racial underpinnings” of Trump’s policies are followed.

Furthermore, The Washington Times reports, “The unity platform … would wipe clean every major immigration policy of the last three and a half years, replacing them with more legal immigration and eliminating the controls that have tamped down on illegal immigration.”

Biden would expand “sanctuary” locations and put greater limits on ICE’s ability to detain and deport illegals. In short, his plan amounts to the adoption of a radical open-borders policy that includes a “roadmap to citizenship” for 11 million illegal immigrants. While Biden’s plan would not abolish ICE, he would so fundamentally transform the agency that it might as well be considered abolished.

The plan also calls for employers to enforce immigration rules, while at the same time handicapping them from actually being able to enforce those rules. “Enforcement should sanction employers, not workers,” it reads. “End workplace raids and ensure that I-9 audits do not undermine workers’ ability to organize and assert their rights.”

Sanders praised the collaborative plan as “a good policy blueprint that will move this country in a much-needed progressive direction and substantially improve the lives of working families throughout our country. While Joe Biden and I, and our supporters, have strong disagreements about some of the most important issues facing our country, we also understand that we must come together in order to defeat Donald Trump, the most dangerous president in modern American history.”

Finally, as Immigration Reform observes, “Biden’s unity plan is notably radical in the immigration sphere for a major presidential candidate. No serious presidential campaign has ever suggested the kind of sweeping reforms presented in this plan. If these ideas became law, they would represent the most sweeping change to the immigration system in our country since the 1965 Immigration and Nationality Act.”
