Biden Admin Secretly Tells Border Patrol To Release Migrants Into U.S. Despite Biden’s Executive Order

President Joe Biden’s administration has instructed U.S. Border Patrol agents to release illegal aliens into the U.S. from all but six of the more than 100 countries in the Eastern Hemisphere rather than deport them.

The Washington Examiner obtained the memo that Border Patrol agents were given by Biden officials which comes immediately after Biden signed a weak executive order on immigration last week that he claimed would shut down the border if it became overwhelmed — even though he had previously said that he couldn’t do it. Numerous officials, elected leaders, and security experts have warned that Biden’s executive order solves nothing and is little more than window dressing.

The instructions that Border Patrol agents were given “contradicts what senior Biden administration officials told reporters in a call on Tuesday would be the case for migrants from Eastern Hemisphere countries who traveled through multiple countries without seeking asylum in order to reach the U.S., referred to as extra-hemispheric migrants,” said Examiner border correspondent Anna Giaritelli.

The report quoted the Biden official as saying: “Extra-hemispheric migrants have always been a challenge. They will be subject to these rules, provisions. We’ve also been working with governments all over the world to enhance our ability to repatriate individuals to countries that have historically been challenging. We have, for example, operated repatriation flights to India, to China, to Uzbekistan, to Mauritania, to Senegal over the last few months, and those are all countries that historically would have been much more challenging for us to return individuals to and we anticipate we will continue to enhance our ability to return migrants to the Eastern Hemisphere.”

“So, we do think that the rules measures will allow us to impose an immediate and fast consequence to migrants no matter what country they’re coming from,” the official claimed.

The instructions the administration gave Border Patrol agents said that only individuals from Georgia, Moldova, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan, and Uzbekistan will be referred for fast removal from the U.S. and not allowed to seek asylum.

Everyone else who enters from a country in the Eastern Hemisphere will be released into the U.S. and allowed to seek asylum.

The Eastern Hemisphere includes all of the Middle East, Asia, most of Africa, and most of Europe.

Fox News correspondent Bill Melugin said that the instructions amount to “mass catch & release continues for illegal immigrants” as approximately 10 million have entered the U.S. under Biden.
