One thing you can say about Joe Biden is that he never tells small lies.
No, if he is going to tell a lie, it’s a big one. One of those big lies concerns President Trump’s efforts in ending the catch and release program. That was a program whereby illegal aliens would get caught and arrested.
They would get a court date and be released into the United States where they would disappear.
“The Catch and Release … if in fact, you had a family that came across, they’re arrested, they were in fact given a date to show up for their hearing, they were released. And guess what, they showed up for the hearing.”
The fact is that 87% of those in the catch and release program never show up for their asylum hearing. Of course they have a good reason for not showing up. They know they are not eligible for asylum and they are already in the United States. But if they show uop for the hearing and lose, they are deported to their home countries.
The question becomes, did Biden intentionally lie or is he just too stupid to known better. This one is too close to call. Biden was never the sharpest crayon in the box but with his decreased mental incapacity it just gets worse. The Democrats love the catch and release program because it brought in so many illegal aliens.
A pilot program was conducted by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Justice (DOJ) to test how many recent border crossers would show up to their asylum hearings after being released into the interior of the U.S.
The results found that about 87 percent of border crossers, or almost 9-in-10, recently released by DHS into the U.S. did not show up to their asylum hearings. With border crossers not showing up to their scheduled hearings, DHS officials said the agency is then forced to grapple with attempting to locate and deport each border crosser, an almost impossible task that strains federal resources.
The Trump administration has nearly ended the Catch and Release program by implementing the Remain in Mexico policy and by invoking a federal order that allows U.S. Border Patrol to instantly deport border crossers back to their native countries.
If Joie Biden wins in November, you can expect a flood of illegals and the stoppage of all deportations. He has already promised to halt all deportations at least in the short run and longer if at all possible. This is just one of the natural disasters that would comer from the Kamala Harris presidency.
