President Joe Biden’s administration is throwing out a reform sought by former President Trump that would have stopped the federal government from issuing work permits to illegal aliens with final deportation orders.
Last year, Trump issued a proposed rule change to prevent the issuance of work permits to illegal aliens who have been ordered deported from the United States by a federal immigration judge.
Now, the Biden administration has announced that they are reversing the proposed rule change, ensuring that the federal government continues to provide work permits to illegal aliens with final deportation orders.
As part of the reversal, the Biden administration cited that stopping issuances of work permits to illegal aliens with final deportation orders “would impose exorbitant costs and burdens on U.S. employers related to labor turnover.”
Jessica Vaughan, with the Center for Immigration Studies, told Breitbart News that the reversal by the Biden administration is “a de facto amnesty” for illegal aliens.
