Biden’s Asylum Policy Faces Legal Challenge Critics Cite Trump Parallels

The Biden administration is facing its first lawsuit after implementing an executive order regarding asylum for illegal immigrants. The order, issued last week, restricts illegal immigrants from seeking asylum at the southern border when there is a high volume of encounters.

A consortium of immigrant advocacy organizations, including the ACLU, initiated the lawsuit against President Joe Biden's administration. They are challenging the executive order, arguing that it is similar to a previous asylum ban implemented by former President Donald Trump.

Detractors of the executive order argue that Biden employs the same legal authority that Trump utilized to implement his asylum prohibition. The authority stems from a provision in the Immigration and Nationality Act, which grants the president the power to restrict entries into the country if they are considered detrimental to national interests.

With Biden's recent directives, only 2,500 individuals would be permitted to enter the country daily for asylum. Should this threshold be surpassed, the executive action will take immediate effect until daily crossings decrease to 1,500.

Biden has justified his directive by emphasizing exemptions for humanitarian purposes, such as unaccompanied minors and asylum seekers with pressing needs for assistance. Furthermore, undocumented immigrants who circumvent official ports of entry may encounter a five-year prohibition on seeking asylum or legal repercussions.

Conservative viewpoints may argue that the lawsuit against Biden’s executive order highlights concerns about national security and immigration policy. Critics may claim that the administration’s actions could potentially undermine efforts to enforce border control and protect American interests.
