Biden Administration Announces Plan to Speed up Ejection of Certain Migrants


Immigration is a key issue as the United States approaches the 2024 Presidential Elections, and both candidates understand this. The American people are concerned about this issue, and both candidates have suggested different strategies to address their concerns. Recently, the Biden administration announced a new plan to speed up the court process for those caught illegally crossing the US border. How will this plan work, and how will it affect your immigration plans in Florida?

Migrants Could Be Deported Faster Under New Plan

In May of 2024, the Biden administration vowed to cut down the court process for migrants caught crossing the border illegally. Currently, these individuals face years of uncertainty after being accused of crossing illegally. According to some estimates, deciding the fate of one of these individuals currently takes “years” due to a completely overburdened court system.

The new goal is to cut down this waiting period to just six months. In order to achieve this goal, the administration will need to hire more judges. Five major cities have been chosen to execute this plan, and these cities are among the most popular destinations for those who cross illegally. It is worth noting that after these individuals are caught, they are generally released into the general population while they wait for their court dates.

This is something that has proven highly controversial with American voters, and the Biden administration seemingly sees the writing on the wall. Although officials seem reluctant to say it outright, the implied goal of this program is to increase the total number of deportations each year. This swift action would also disincentivize other migrants from coming across the border, as the “catch-and-release” policy is now common knowledge. The logic is that if people can only stay in the country for six months instead of many years, they might be more reluctant to come to the United States.

According to the Voice of America, 3 million migrants are currently waiting for their hearings in immigration courts.

Why Is Biden Doing This?

The current political arena is confusing to say the least. Biden, who ran on a more lenient immigration policy, is now executing draconian measures normally associated with Trump. In contrast, Trump is actively encouraging Republicans to reject plans for hundreds of new immigration judges. Observers say that if Biden succeeds in taking a tough immigration stance, this would give Trump less “ammunition” to criticize the current administration in the upcoming elections.
