Biden admin will let migrant families separated under Trump reunite inside U.S.
 
WASHINGTON — The Biden administration's task force for reuniting migrant families separated by the Trump administration will allow separated families "the option of being reunified either in the United States or their county of origin," Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said on Monday.
 
 
Mayorkas called the separation of thousands of migrant families under the Trump administration "the most powerful and heartbreaking example of the cruelty that proceeded this administration," in a White House briefing.
 
Lawyers representing the families in a federal lawsuit had called on the Biden administration to make such a move to allow parents who were separated from their children and then deported without them to come back to the United States to reunify.
 
They argued that without special protections for those parents to come back to the United States, they are forced to choose between bringing their children back to dangerous conditions in their home counties or remaining separated.
 
Mayorkas also announced Michelle Brané as executive director of the task force, as NBC News previously reported. He said the task force will be working with non-governmental organizations as well as the countries of El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.
 
Other benefits and protections the task force will give the separated families include transportation, healthcare and mental health services as well as legal, career and educational services, with no costs being passed down to families.
 
A DHS spokesperson said that the task force will also consider siblings of children separated for reunification.

Personally, Jennifer, I'm for posting signs at the Mexican border warning people 'Trespassers will be shot'.

That's because you're a murderous white supremacist thug. 

There would probably be a few deaths, but people would soon get the idea.  When they started to hear what happened to a couple of guys who tried to get through the border illegally, people would stop paying thousands of dollars to coyotes to (maybe) bring them up through Mexico and across the border.

In the end we'd have possibly half-a-dozen  people shot versus thousands who die of thirst, starvation, asphyxiation, mishap, and murder.

It's all very simple and straightforward.  But because you are a sentimentalist, I don't expect you to understand that.

What gives Canadian thugs like you the right to murder anybody in my country?

... Nowhere is sentimentalism more rampant than in immigration policy. Even before Donald Trump ran for president, among progressives a growing moral consensus held that borders were at best inefficient and at worst, gravely immoral. How is it fair that  some people may live in rich, safe nations,  while others are trapped in poor, dangerous ones simply by accident of birth? Modern progressivism lacks the intellectual scaffolding to even answer that question. Four years of a Trump presidency hardened  the new consensus into dogma. Bill Clinton may have bragged about curbing illegal immigration and Barack Obama may have  voted to build a border fence. But in 2021,  the de facto Democratic position is that America’s borders are an abomination.

This leaves President Biden more hobbled than Obama ever was in fixing the situation at the border. Thanks to Biden’s policies, soon there will be countless new arrivals, claiming to fear violence in their home countries, and bringing along young children, whether related, accompanied or neither. If his party believes that mere poverty creates a valid asylum claim, that real borders are morally illegitimate, that minors must be admitted immediately, that families must never be separated and that ICE must be defanged or abolished, what can Biden do besides let everybody in?

President Biden will have to find the courage to resist his own party’s new ideology, or the border crisis of his first months could turn into the defining problem of his entire presidency.
