Former DHS Chief Chad Wolf is slamming Biden for his new policy of releasing illegal immigrants without a court date.
According to Town Hall:
Former Acting Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf sounded off on the crisis at the border, the likes of which he said we “haven’t seen in decades.”
The numbers are surging, he told Fox Business’s Maria Bartiromo. In November 2020, under the Trump administration, they had about 800 illegal immigrants in custody. Now, Wolf regretted, 10,000 people are in Customs and Border Patrol custody. In February, they had over 100,000 illegal apprehensions. That number “will be much north of 100,000” at the end of March, he predicted.
Wolf was adamant that Biden’s policies are exacerbating the problem, reversing his predecessor’s Remain in Mexico policy, and having Border Patrol release families without court dates.
“I have never heard of that…It tells you we not only have open borders, we now have a lawless border…There’s nothing there that disincentivizes them,” Wolf said.
Wolf said he suspects that the Biden administration was caught without a plan in place to deal with the border crisis he almost welcomed.
