I suggested throughout Joe Biden’s pathetic presidential campaign that he might as well install northbound ‘people movers’ across the Rio Grande and hire mariachi bands to welcome illegal aliens to America.
Now that Biden is president and the Biden Border Crisis continues unabated, Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is working his ass off protecting illegals already here — as well as the untold tens of thousands that continue to arrive. NPR reports that Customs Enforcement agents have been instructed by Mayorkas to stop conducting mass raids of workplaces where illegal immigrants are working.
JUST IN: DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas issued a memo directing ICE to end mass workplace raids.

It gets “better.” As Mayorkas sees it, the problem isn’t illegal aliens, it’s “exploitive employers” who hire them. Thing is, if there were no illegal aliens to hire, so-called exploitative employers couldn’t hire them.
Mayorkas released Tuesday’s memorandum stating:
The previous administration [of course; it’s Trump’s fault]These resource-intensive operations led to the arrest of many workers. [While the raids attracted attention and made headlines], they were used as a tool by exploitative employers to suppress and retaliate against workers’ assertion of labor laws.
As NPR noted, the DHS announcement is part of the Biden administration’s shift in strategy that puts the emphasis on businesses and employers that violate labor laws — versus illegal aliens, themselves. The order, which stops mass raids and supports NPR’s idea that the prosecutorial discretion can be used to protect workers from being charged if they are witnesses or victims of abuse at work, NPR stated.
Mayorkas spoke in a release regarding the new strategy.
“The Department of Homeland Security has a critical role to ensure our Nation’s workplaces comply with our laws. Employers who employ unauthorized workers or engage in illegal activity, as well as those that impose unsanitary working conditions, will be dealt with severely by us.
“Employers engaged in illegal acts compel the focus of our enforcement resources. By adopting policies that focus on the most unscrupulous employers, we will protect workers as well as legitimate American businesses.”
The selectivity is incredulous — hypocritical and oxymoronic as hell, isn’t it? “Illegal acts.” “Unscrupulous.” Attacking “legitimate businesses” while protecting “illegitimate” illegal aliens.
The DHS news release also reiterated “an end to mass worksite enforcement operations.”
Like Secretary of State Antony Blinken’s smug Mayorkas (as with Attorney General Merrick Galrland and Secretary at the Treasury Janet Yellen), the elitist, know-it all Secretary of Transportation Pete Buttigieg is like Biden. He always thinks he is the smartest person in the room. Hypocritical as hell, of course — every one of the above Is — while blatantly transparent, as well.
Keep in mind, this is the same month as a year ago.
Biden will fine companies $500 for each illegal immigrant company that hires them + pay citizens 20% of total fine for information that leads to prosecution + minimum 5 years imprisonment for bosses who violate existing law by hiring illegal immigrants
Joe! Keep them away from the country. You can stop the influx.
Biden will put $500 a day Fine on Companies for each Illegal Immigrant Company Hires + Pay Citizens 20% of Total Fine for Information that Leads to Prosecution + Minimum 5 Years in Jail for Bosses that Break Existing Law by Hiring Illegal Immigrant Workers https://t.co/JDCs5B1BaC
