Republicans Send Special Demand To DHS

( The Biden administration has apparently come up with a whole plan for how to overhaul the U.S. immigration system, but it hasn’t been released to other government officials yet.

Now, some Republican senators are demanding the Biden administration release the information to the general public and Congress.

A dozen senators have drafted a letter to Alejandro Mayorkas, the secretary of Homeland Security, that demanded the Biden administration release the draft, which is 46 pages. The report is called the “DHS Plan to Restore Trust in Our Legal Immigration System.”

The New York Times reported that this plan maps out Biden’s plan for expanding America’s immigration system.

The paper reports that the blueprint “lists a number of initiatives aimed at re-opening the country to more immigrants.” It apparently would rollback policies that were instituted under President Donald Trump as well as other “ex-presidents.”

The Times reported that the blueprint “addresses the plaguing backlog and delays.”

The plan apparently contains proposals to policy that wouldn’t be able to be implemented by the president alone. They would require Congress to make sweeping changes to current immigration laws in the United States.

The Republican senators wrote in their letter that the blueprint is being “withdrawn from Congress and the American people,” and they feel it’s “particularly disturbing given the ongoing crisis at the southern border.”

The senators have expressed concern about the policies that have been reported to be in the blueprint. They believe that some of these policies could actually accelerate the inflow of illegal immigrants into the U.S. at a time when there’s a huge surge of migrants into the country already.

The senators wrote in their letter to Mayorkas:

“We are deeply concerned that these policies will act as a pull factor to attract illegal immigrants to the country — just like those already being implemented by the Biden administration.”

The GOP lawmakers also said they were not in favor of Biden’s plan to “use and abuse executive authority to reshape our immigration system.”

They wrote:

“In addition, the policies proposed in this document will open new avenues for immigrants to enter the country legally that are beyond the plain text and meaning of the law. While there are many rational suggestions for reform of this document, these are decisions that Congress and Congress should take alone, and not from the pen of the president.

“A decision with such serious public safety consequences must be open and accessible, but instead, DHS has kept this information from everyone except a media aide.”

The senators who signed the letter include Kevin Cramer from North Dakota, Jim Inhofe from Alabama, Bill Haggerty from Tennessee, Ron Johnson from Wisconsin, Susan Collins from Maine, Tommy Tuberville from Alabama, Cindy Hyde-Smith from Mississippi, Steve Dines from Montana, Rick Scott from Florida, Joni Ernst from Iowa, Mike Lee from Utah and Thom Tillis from North Carolina.

There has been no response as of yet from Mayorkas or other White House officials.
