Biden admin scraps Trump-era policy, hoping illegal immigrant parents will claim illegal minor children

With less than two months in the White House and an out-of-control border crisis, President Joe Biden and his administration rolled back yet another immigration-related policy put in place by former President Donald Trump.

According to the Washington Examiner, as of this week, the Biden administration rolled back an information-sharing agreement between the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) that proponents of the move claim will make it less scary for illegal immigrant adults to come forward and claim their illegal immigrant minor children. 

It has been widely reported over the past several weeks that amid the ongoing crisis at the southern U.S. border, one of the most concerning issues is the number of migrant minors that are being detained on a daily basis.

Critics of the information-sharing agreement set up under the Trump administration claim that the agreement scared off illegal immigrant parents from claiming their detained children, fearing if they showed up to collect them that they would instantly be deported.

The agencies made that clear in a statement, saying Trump’s policy “had a chilling effect on potential sponsors (usually a parent or close relative) from stepping up to sponsor an unaccompanied child placed in the care of HHS.” Some even went as far as suggesting that the Trump administration used children as “bait” to lure desperate parents in so that they could be arrested.

With the Biden administration now desperate to find housing and sponsors for the children, they’ve made the decision to not share critical information with DHS and, in turn, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement, with the hopes that more parents will soon come forward.

The move comes in the wake of current holding facilities — which were designed for adult migrants — overflowing with unaccompanied minors. Resources are stretched thin as facility capacities are maxed out and children are being held long over the intended amount of time.

It was only on Friday that the Biden administration finally admitted that the situation was more than a “challenge,” as they described it as an “emergency” in a conference call with various department heads.

Only time will tell if Biden’s scrapping of the information-sharing agreement between the two agencies will actually make a difference, but with the number of illegal children pouring over the border by the hour, it’s not looking good.

    let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head.
