White House Says Deportations Will Be Reduced if Republicans Don't Pass Border Bill

ICE/Public Domain

Want illegal immigration to end? Most Americans do.

But now the White House says Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will reduce deportations if Republicans don't help pass the border bill - that includes more foreign aid for Ukraine and Israel than it does border security funding.

Fox News reports, "The White House on Thursday announced that U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement will soon be 'forced' to reduce operations at the southern border due to lack of funds.

Press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre told reporters that because Republicans have not passed the bipartisan border security agreement with funding for Israel and Ukraine, the administration is left with no choice but to pull back from the border."

"Forced." Really?

The story continued:

"Because congressional Republicans are choosing partisan politics over our national security and refusing to pass the bipartisan national security agreement that includes significant border reforms and funding, over the coming weeks, ICE will be forced to reduce operations because of budget shortfalls," Jean-Pierre said during a gaggle on Air Force One.
"We have asked Congress for additional funding and resources, and every time Congress has provided less than we asked for, or most recently, completely ignored our supplemental request," she said.
The announcement that ICE will reduce enforcement operations comes after U.S. Customs and Border Protection reported more than 3.2 million encounters with illegal immigrants at the border, the highest ever recorded.
Jean-Pierre said that without additional appropriations, "ICE would be forced to reduce its removal operations, its total detention capacity and more." 

This is ridiculous.

What the Biden administration is doing is holding Americans hostage.

They care more about Ukraine's border than that of the United States.

Here's how much we've spent on Ukraine compared to all other foreign aid.

From the perspective of U.S. leaders, America's borders should be worth protecting more than those of any other countries - period.

All of this spending should be standalone legislation anyway, where it's voted up or down on its own merits.

It looks like the White House is worried some of the spending would be voted down if not tied to something more important like border security.

And the Biden administration is apparently more than willing to sacrifice the security of their own country for that of another.
