These ideas are not as far-fetched as they might seem. Just look at the Biden-Harris Administration, where important, duly-enacted laws and regulations are being made unrecognizable by absurd, and dangerous, interpretations and other abuses of “discretion.”
These actions share two goals: to increase illegal entry into America; and to decrease deportation of those here illegally, including many criminals.
Article II, Section 3 of the Constitution directs that the president “shall take Care that the Laws be faithfully executed….” The Constitution also makes clear, in Section I, Section 1: “All legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in” Congress.
A president cannot pick and choose which laws to enforce, and which to ignore or eviscerate. To do so is to undermine democracy and the rule of law.
But that is what President Joe Biden is doing – or, rather, not doing – at our wide open southern border (which I visited last April, and which he refuses to visit), and in the interior of the United States.
Not long after taking office, his Administration cancelled the highly-effective Remain in Mexico policy that had significantly reduced the flow of illegal entrants. After a federal judge declared this cancellation unlawful, Team Biden slow-walked the court’s order to reinstate it. Now, the Biden Administration is barely using this important program, while it prepares to try again to eliminate it. It’s no wonder the Border Patrol agents I spoke with in McAllen were demoralized: they are not allowed to do their jobs properly.
Biden’s refusal to enforce the law has unleashed the largest number of illegal border crossers since 1960, at about two million, making a mockery of foreigners who follow our laws to immigrate here legally. It has also contributed to our record 100,000 drug overdose deaths in 2021, primarily from China-
Once here, the Biden-Harris Administration is flying thousands of these migrants into cities and towns big and small, in the middle of the night to avoid public disclosure, and often without even giving prior notice to the governor or local officials. A recent media report indicated some of these illegal aliens were being released in Texas, Florida, and Georgia, coincidentally some of the most important states in recent presidential elections. They also allow the

President Biden’s refusal to enforce our immigration laws leaves us less safe. He has made every city a sanctuary city, and every state a border state. The only people provided no sanctuary under this president are the American people.
