Trump wants to Deport, Biden wants to Revitalize Services for Illegals

As the United States prepares for the upcoming election year, the refugee system is experiencing a notable transformation under President Joe Biden’s administration. Following the reductions made during the Trump administration, Biden’s efforts are revitalizing the refugee system, with the U.S. aiming to admit 125,000 refugees this year, the highest in over three decades.

On Sunday, President Trump reminded people he wants to start deporting illegals right away:

That is because the Biden administration has streamlined the screening and placement process to accommodate the increase of illegals, a significant shift from the record low of 11,814 refugees admitted in Trump’s final year.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently reported that under the Obama administration, 84,994 refugees were admitted, illustrating the stark contrast in refugee policies between the two administrations. Lutheran Services Carolinas has also seen a significant increase in the number of refugees they resettle, from about 40 in 2020 to an anticipated 440 this year.

This expansion of resettlement efforts is further highlighted by adding about 150 new resettlement sites nationwide.

However, the issue of immigration remains contentious, casting uncertainty over the future of the refugee system. Despite this, many communities and employers are welcoming the influx of illegals, recognizing their lower wages. As Democrats in the U.S. strive to become a center of the world’s refugees for economic migrants, the coming months will be crucial in determining the trajectory of the refugee system.

Not the Bee (NTB) has recently cited a report from The Free Press, which claims that NGOs have made billions of dollars on the border crisis since Biden took office. The report criticizes the lack of oversight and accountability in these organizations and the potential for abuse and exploitation of illegal. It also highlights the Office of Refugee Resettlement’s role in these issues.

The sustainability of these efforts and the future of the refugee system in the U.S. is uncertain, particularly with the looming 2020 rematch between Biden and Trump. The Biden administration’s ambitious goal to admit 125,000 refugees this year clearly indicates their commitment to rebuilding the refugee system. Yet, the controversy surrounding immigration and the significant financial gains by NGOs during the border crisis could potentially influence the public’s perception and the government’s policies on refugee resettlement.
