Before President Joe Biden took the oath of office Jan. 20, he announced he would be taking bold action in his first days to reverse his predecessor’s immigration policies. Biden’s promises seem to have laid the groundwork for a crisis at the southern border — much like the mishandled immigration crisis in the Obama years.
Biden promised he’d undo former President Donald Trump’s immigration policies by various means, such as a 100-day deportation moratorium, reported Fox News. As Biden was preparing to take the oath of office, a migrant caravan started making its way north towards the U.S.-Mexico border from Honduras. Migrants are citing the change in administration and Biden’s policies as the impetus for coming, something experts and officials warned the public would happen if Biden were elected.
