Biden Cancels Fines for Illegal Immigrants

At the same time that Joe Biden and Kamala Harris are doing all they can to raise taxes on working Americans and businesses, they’re canceling the fines owed by immigrants who entered the United States illegally.


Homeland Security announced Friday it was canceling fines for illegal immigrants who refused to leave, and would grant an amnesty for any fines already imposed by the Trump administration,” according to The Washington Times. [emphasis added]

Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said the fines weren’t having much effect and so he saw no need to leave them in place.

“‘We can enforce our immigration laws without resorting to ineffective and unnecessary punitive measures,’ he said in a statement…

“He said the department will work with the Treasury Department to cancel the fines migrants had already racked up.

“The move is the latest in a series of actions the new administration has taken to lift penalties and ease the life of illegal immigrants who, other than their unlawful status in the country, have managed to keep a relatively clean criminal record.
