YUMA, Arizona — Former and current border officials believe President Biden is making last-minute changes to his administration's border policies solely to gain votes in the November presidential election.

On May 16, the Biden administration announced it would implement a new expedited asylum adjudication process for migrants who will have their cases heard in Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles or New York City, where decisions will be made within 180 days.

The president is also said to be weighing an executive order to shut down the border once there are 4,000 crossings per day, sources recently told The Post.

Former President Donald Trump's Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf, Yuma County Sheriff Leon Wilmot and former Yuma sector Border Patrol chief Chris Clem all told The Post they feel these fixes are just for show, and won't address problems caused by the last three and a half years of crisis at the southern border.

Biden's measures and proposals are just "a fourth-quarter Hail Mary out of desperation," Clem said.

The Biden administration is also implementing new restrictions for asylum interviews taking place at the southern border to more quickly remove migrants who can't prove they have a "credible fear" of returning to their home country.

"I think it's too little too late and counters everything [Biden's] argued that he doesn't have the authority," Clem said.

Clem and Wolf were visiting Yuma as part of a tour led by Polaris, a national security-focused group led by former Trump administration State Department spokeswoman Morgan Ortagus.

The new fixes "aren't going to have a material difference on what's going on at the border," Wolf said.

"We're almost three and a half years into a crisis and only now are they starting to take executive actions. These are actions that we have been pleading with the administration to take for two and a half to three years.

"They've repeatedly told the American people [Biden] doesn't have the authority, that he needs Congress to act on a bill, and yet they're starting to act using executive authority, so which is it?" Wolf said.

While searching the border for discarded migrant identification documents — a tactic used by migrants to shield their true identity after they cross the border and claim asylum, making it harder for officers to know where to deport them to — Wilmot shared his dissatisfaction with the Biden administration's policies.

"Now all of a sudden they want to tout border security. Where have they been?" Wilmot said.

"Why all of a sudden is there border security being pushed? Because it's election year."

The Biden administration recently held talks with Mexican officials to discuss ways to crack down on illegal immigration.

Mexican authorities have been pulling migrants without permits off trains and buses headed toward the US and deporting more as part of an agreement with the Biden administration.

Wilmot said the deal with Mexico came to fruition because Biden knew the situation at the border was "a bad look" for him.

"And I don't care what administration it is, from a public safety standpoint what they're doing is wrong," Wilmot said.

In January, Biden told reporters he'd "done all I can do" to address the border and required Congress to act.

Biden has since changed his tune as illegal immigration and enhanced border enforcement are increasingly ranking as top concerns for voters.

The reality of it is this won't do a damn thing but bring in more illegals.  He is still standing by his open border policy he put in effect on his 1st day in office.

An easily predictable sham. He will spend the next six months trying to generate headlines that’s he doing something,  and will stop enforcement the day after the election.

A bipartisan bill that did jack shit of nothing to close the border. 5,000 a day crossing for 10 days I believe before the border would be shut down- not including children and got aways. Hiring more BP bus drivers- have to get those illegals off the border as fast as they can and into the US. Allowing Brandon and Garland to hand pick new border judges- far leftist morons that believe in letting everyone in only can apply.

The bill did nothing to address the illegals already here; nor take away any of the incentives like SS, access to veteran facilities for medical care, free transport to the state of their choosing, or anything else to stem the flow of inbound.

Democrats created this mess, they can damn well fix it. The clock is ticking Brandon, make us believe you are finally putting US citizens first for a change.

How about Democrats tell Schumer to get off his ass- and stop sitting on House bill H.R. 2? A bill that actually addresses border security; and doesn't just turn the border into a Democrat indoctrination center like that bipartisan piece of schlock from the Senate.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/118th-congress/house-bill/2/summary/00#:~:text=H.R.2%20%2D%20118th%20Congress%20(2023,Congress.gov

For example, the bill
  • requires the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to resume activities to construct a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border;
  • provides statutory authorization for Operation Stonegarden, which provides grants to law enforcement agencies for certain border security operations;
  • prohibits DHS from processing the entry of non-U.S. nationals ( aliens   under federal law) arriving between ports of entry;
  • limits asylum eligibility to non-U.S. nationals who arrive in the United States at a port of entry;
  • authorizes the removal of a non-U.S. national to a country other than that individual's country of nationality or last lawful habitual residence, whereas currently this type of removal may only be to a country that has an agreement with the United States for such removal;
  • expands the types of crimes that may make an individual ineligible for asylum, such as a conviction for driving while intoxicated causing another person's serious bodily injury or death;
  • authorizes DHS to suspend the introduction of certain non-U.S. nationals at an international border if DHS determines that the suspension is necessary to achieve operational control of that border;
  • prohibits states from imposing licensing requirements on immigration detention facilities used to detain minors;
  • authorizes immigration officers to permit an unaccompanied alien child to withdraw their application for admission into the United States even if the child is unable to make an independent decision to withdraw the application;
  • imposes additional penalties for overstaying a visa; and
  • requires DHS to create an electronic employment eligibility confirmation system modeled after the E-Verify system and requires all employers to use the system.

Many on the hard-right wanted to hijack this process by demanding we take up H.R. 2, but I made clear the only bill I would bring to the floor was one that could win bipartisan support. Not a single Democrat in the House or Senate voted for H.R. 2.

How the hell would Schumer know? He never brought H.R 2 to the floor for a vote. Of course bringing it to the floor would put Senate Democrats on the record for not wanting to actually secure the border and fix the illegal immigration problem.

Why do something that works? When you can add billions in new spending granting Brandon powers he already has at his disposal. But at least the BP will get more bus drivers and paper pushers; and Democrats will get a host of new far left immigration judges to let illegals into the country either by amnesty or granting them outright citizenship.

Stopping states from actually enforcing US laws just proves Brandon isn't serious about stopping illegal immigration.

With all of Trumps' rhetoric, of how a severe grave effect the current policy is having, say allowing deadly pentanol and all, and would be terrorists into our country, Why, Why is this not taken up and implemented to help in the meantime, because if it is as grave as Trump and the GOP state constantly, WHY NOT DO SOMETHIMG POSITIVE NOW ?

Because Trump and the GOP don't really care about you and me, they are just hyping possible scenarios watching the fears grow, all to garner more support for they to be elected. COWARDS are who and what they be !

Senator Lankford was all over the news today looking for a second chance to pass this bipartisan legislation

and get Biden to sign it.  Screw the politics FIX SOMETHING!

Odds are that the Republicans themselves will derail this effort as well.

Screw Lankford. Yet another Establishment POS Republican more concerned about getting a bill (any bill) passed, than actually fixing the problem.

The bill doesn't grant Brandon one damn power that he already doesn't have.

He and the Democrats created this damn mess; they can damn well fix it w/o any additional spending; more BP bus drivers and paper pushers; and more far left immigration judges appointed by Brandon and Garland.

Senate Republicans threw House Republicans under the bus by not forcing him to take up H.R. 2 in return for the package for Taiwan, Ukraine, and Israel. Instead Republicans got jack shit of nothing in return for granting Democrats billions for things they were already desperate to fund.

Which powers? Every EO would be turned over by Trump or the next POTUS with an (R) next to his name.

He and the Democrats created this damn mess; they can damn well fix it w/o any additional spending; more BP bus drivers and paper pushers; and more far left immigration judges appointed by Brandon and Garland.

Congress created this mess during WWII, Congress exacerbated this mess under Ragan and Congress should be the ones to permanently fix it. 

Senate Republicans threw House Republicans under the bus by not forcing him to take up H.R. 2 in return for the package for Taiwan, Ukraine, and Israel. Instead Republicans got jack shit of nothing in return for granting Democrats billions for things they were already desperate to fund.

Maybe, but the House Republicans have been dysfunctional since the Tea Party started and they haven't had a decent leader since Boehner & Ryan.

Truth!

Biden could break our current US laws and International treaties, as El Trumpo did, or Congress could change our US laws and treaties. Biden is merely obeying our US laws which were passed by our US Congress and signed by our former US Presidents!

Arch conservative MAGA republican US Senator James Lankford of Oklahoma says so, too Lankford agrees with you and me...

Go Figure!

The irony, as you argue against Biden exercising the powers he already has because Trump MIGHT make undo border security measures (Lol) at some point in the future and that the problem would be solved by a bill whose provisions could also be ignored by Biden or any other future President because of their discretionary nature.

Yep, that is the biggest problem with that bill. The Dems put way too any restrictions on it and added riders to it that have zero to do with US border security. The Democrats are afraid of a stand alone border security bill the Republicans want that would realistically restrict and curtail the entry of illegals into this country.

Voted down again 50 to 43 as the GOP makes sure it's politics first because the border isn't really that important to them as anything more than a political football.

“It is interesting: Republicans, four months ago, would not give funding for Ukraine, for Israel and for our southern border because we demanded changes in policy,”  Lankford said  on CNN. “And now, it’s interesting, a few months later, when we’re finally getting to the end, they’re like, ‘Oh, just kidding, I actually don’t want a change in law because it’s a presidential election year.’”
