Flotsam and Jetsam - Biden's Border Boondoggle, Hunter on Trial

Preznit Biden issued a new executive order, restricting asylum seekers to a mere 2,500 per day or 1 3/4 million per year. From Reason, Biden Announces Sweeping Asylum Restrictions at U.S.-Mexico Border "When border encounters between ports of entry hit an average of 2,500 per day over a seven-day period, migrants will no longer be allowed to seek asylum unless they qualify for a narrow exception or request an appointment at a port of entry through an app (a process that has been glitchy and cumbersome). The restrictions will lift two weeks after the daily number of encounters between ports of entry falls below 1,500 on average over a seven-day period." A nod toward sanity, but barely. Mary Chastain at LI, Biden’s Border Executive Order Accomplishes a Bunch of Nothing "Boll Melugin: “Also, asylum has already been banned for most migrants who cross illegally since the end of Title 42 last year – and that hasn’t stopped them from coming.”"  At Da Caller, ‘Fool The American People’: Biden’s Immigration Order Has More Holes Than The Border, Experts Say.
