US Secretary of Defense Alejandro Myorgas on Monday criticized the administration of former President Donald Trump for removing the immigration system to the United States.
At a news conference, Majorcos said the Trump administration had “completely destroyed the entire immigration system” and that President Joe Biden’s administration was “working around the clock to change the atrocities of the past administration through an immigration process.”
He reiterated his warning that those planning to travel across the border should not do so, adding that “we have an obligation to be in the public health service, including the health of those who think they are coming.
As a “strong and very heartbreaking” example of Trump’s policies, the Secretary of Defense, citing the separation of children from border families, announced that the Biden administration would provide for separated families. “Willingness to reunite in the United States or in their own country ”.
“In fact, if they try to reunite here in the United States, we will explore legal alternatives for them to stay in the United States,” Majorcos said.
He also named his recent talks with foreign ministers in El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras to discuss the issue.
Biden had promised in his election campaign to change the actions of his predecessors related to immigration, and he has taken a number of steps in this regard since he became president on January 20.
Last week, the U.S. government released an interim guideline dramatically restricting who can be arrested and deported by immigration agents, and the Biden administration faces growing pressure from activists to reduce deportations.
The guidelines advise Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agents to focus on immigrants who are considered a threat to national security and public safety and those who entered the United States after November 1, 2020.
Former President Trump’s order suspending some immigrant visas during corona virus outbreaks has also been revoked.
