PRESS STATEMENT: President Biden Abandons Campaign Promises, Adopting Trump’s Deadly Border Policies
New York, NY (January 30, 2024) — Late Friday, President Biden issued a statement throwing his full support behind legislation that would eviscerate the U.S. asylum system. In response, Bridget Crawford, Immigration Equality’s Director of Law & Policy issued the following statement:
“President Biden is trying to deceive the American public about his border policies—the most radical changes to U.S. immigration law in decades. He claims they are the ‘toughest and fairest’ in U.S. history when, in reality, they are a death knell for our asylum system.”
