In a Tuesday conference call with reporters, top Biden advisers warned that asylum restrictions and other immigration policies on the United States’ southern border will not be going away anytime soon.
Rolling back the policies, advisers say, will “take time.”
This is despite the fact that Joe Biden swore on numerous occasions to immediately reverse Trump’s immigration decisions if he won the election.
Biden tweeted in January.
“Donald Trump has slammed the door shut in the face of families fleeing persecution and violence.
On day one, I will eliminate President Trump’s decision to limit asylum and end the MPP [Migrant Protection Protocols] program,”
Promise Made…Promise Not Kept
Biden’s flip-flop is already earning the Democrat a wave of criticism on social media.
Journalist Glenn Greenwald tweeted:
“It appears that the inclusion of a policy in a campaign platform, or a promise by a candidate trying to win votes, doesn’t actually mean that’s what will be done once the person is in power,”

But Joe What About Obama’s illegal immigrant cages?
Critics also pointed out, the Obama/Biden administration, also had strict immigration policies.
The most infamous being the building of “cages” for separating families coming into the country illegally.
Of course, despite overwhelming evidence, the Democrats tried to accuse, some of which still do, Trump of building Obama’s cages.
In October, Democratic nominee Joe Biden was forced to acknowledge that his ‘Best Buddy Barack’ was solely responsible for the cages to detain children illegally crossing the border.
Biden said it was a “mistake” the Obama administration was never able to implement the immigration reform that was promised for years.
But while admitting their administration’s egregious mistake.
Joe Biden quickly threw his ‘Best Buddy Barack’ under the bus by claiming things will be different when he is in office because “I’ll be president of the United States, not vice president of the United States.”
I suspect this is just the first of many lies Joe Biden will be telling over the next 4-years.
