Biden’s new immigration policy garners strong reactions

by ian

President Joe Biden announced yesterday that he will expand protections and fast-track the citizenship process for illegal immigrants married to US citizens.

His plan could affect up to half a million people. The announcement marked the 12th anniversary of the DACA program.

But conservatives are already criticizing the executive order as nothing but a Democrat ploy to influence the upcoming elections. For instance, former President Trump accused Biden of “using” illegal immigrants for political gain.

Likewise, President Biden accused Trump of only caring about his electability, when the bipartisan border bill failed to pass.

Tensions surrounding the border crisis have been heating up as this will be an important issue for American voters in November.
