Controversy Surrounds Mayorkas’ New Immigration Policy

Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has sparked controversy by declaring that illegal migrants who have been deported can re-enter the United States using the “CBP One” cellphone app. This app allows migrants to request entry through official ports, effectively bypassing traditional immigration controls.

Mayorkas’ announcement has drawn criticism from immigration experts like Mark Krikorian, who argues that the administration seeks to facilitate illegal entry through a legal loophole. The “CBP One” app provides migrants with parole status, allowing them to work legally and repay their smuggling debts.

Mayorkas indicated that the current daily capacity of 1,400 to 1,500 migrant appointments could increase with more funding for port upgrades. This policy could result in nearly 550,000 migrants entering the U.S. annually, significantly impacting the country’s immigration landscape.

Krikorian contends that this creates a parallel system of illegal immigration, doubling the number of illegal aliens compared to legal immigrants. He criticizes the administration for undermining congressional limits on immigration and prioritizing the interests of coastal investors over ordinary Americans.

Mayorkas’s approach aligns with the interests of West Coast investors, who benefit from the influx of workers, renters and consumers. He argues that increased migration is necessary for economic growth and equity. His policy aims to expand the U.S. economy by increasing the number of consumers and workers.

Critics, however, argue that this policy harms American workers by depressing wages and increasing competition for jobs. The increased migration also strains the country’s infrastructure and social services. They accuse the administration of prioritizing the interests of elites over those of ordinary Americans.

Mayorkas’ stance reflects a broader Democratic Party strategy that uses migration to shift wealth and power. This approach has significant implications for American society, including increased economic inequality and political polarization.
