Senators Accuse Biden of Carrying Out ‘Mass Amnesty’ for Illegal Aliens

Biden Closes Deportation Cases


Sens. John Thune (R-SD) and J.D. Vance (R-OH) are accusing President Joe Biden of carrying out a “de facto policy of mass amnesty” by having the federal government close hundreds of thousands of deportation cases.

Federal data published this week reveals an alarming trend on Biden’s watch, where migrants who have been released into the United States interior are increasingly having their deportation cases closed despite not having secured asylum.

In a letter to Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas and Attorney General Merrick Garland, Thune and Vance are demanding details on the migrants whose deportation cases are being closed, including whether they have criminal records. Thume and Vance wrote:

As the Biden administration attempts to sell American voters on the idea that it has finally gotten tough on illegal immigration despite nearly three and half years of inaction and nearly 10 million illegal border crossings, it is simultaneously diverting attention away from recent reports that over 350,000 individuals have had their pending asylum cases terminated without either approval or denial since 2022.

This is in addition to the unknown number of cases that were effectively shelved via administrative closure. We believe that this amounts to a de facto policy of mass amnesty that not only flouts federal immigration law but may serve as yet another “pull factor” that continues to energize illegal immigration across our borders and fuel the humanitarian and national security crisis that continues to unfold under your watch. [Emphasis added]

As secretary of homeland security and attorney general, you are responsible for enforcing the nation’s immigration laws and preserving the integrity of lawful immigration pathways, while playing an integral role in protecting America’s national security. By removing over 350,000 individuals from what should be a thorough asylum process that is seen to completion for each distinct case, you are sending a troubling signal to would-be migrants that the asylum program is so dysfunctional that the mere filing of an asylum claim, legitimate or not, may enable remaining in the country. [Emphasis added]


Sen. Josh Hawley (R-MO) wrote a similar letter this week, accusing Biden of offering a “de facto amnesty” to hundreds of thousands of migrants through the immigration courts.
