— Surge humanitarian resources to the border and encourage public-private partnerships to deal with an increase in migration there.Incomplete. Biden signed an executive order in February directing his officials to craft a strategy for migration, including refugees and asylum seekers, and while he promised last year to implement a new “humane” asylum system, there’s been no sign of specifics from the White House. And the Biden administration has continued a Trump-era policy that allows Customs and Border Protection to quickly expel migrants who enter the country without authorization to avoid the spread of COVID-19.

This is a joke, right? Talk about all the broken promises. Let’s treat him like you treated the previous President which, incidentally kept every promise he made when he was elected. Where his Biden’s plan to stop Covid? Where is his student loan forgiveness? Major fail. He hasn't done a damn one of his promises, but nice try there. I see you trying to boost his abysmal approval rating.

His brain is mush…he can’t put two sentences together without stumbling; he is “handled” like a kindergartner by the White House.

Biden hunkers down ahead of just 2nd solo press conference to end first yearPresident Biden has remained out of public view this week as he prepares for just his second solo White House press conference on Wednesday. He’s just a Hellboy villain at this point. He can’t speak extemporaneously without saying something crazy. First 4-5 he calls on will be scripted. From there it could be interesting.

to 125,000, up from the 15,000 set by Trump. Not close. Biden signed an executive order in February raising the cap to 62,500 refugees. ADVERTISEMENT — Surge humanitarian resources to the border and encourage public-private partnerships to deal with an increase in migration there. Yes, but officials have still struggled to deal with the influx of migrants at the border. Biden signed an executive order asking officials to prepare plans for using humanitarian resources there. He has yet to establish new public-private partnerships. — Reform the U.S. asylum system. Incomplete. Biden signed an executive order in February directing his officials to craft a strategy for migration, including refugees and asylum seekers, and while he promised last year to implement a new “humane” asylum system, there’s been no sign of specifics from the White House. And the Biden administration has continued a Trump-era policy that allows Customs and Border Protection to quickly expel migrants who enter the country without authorization to avoid the spread of COVID-19. — Reverse Trump-era policies on travel restrictions on people from a number of Muslim-majority countries, funding and building the border wall, a provision discouraging migrants from using public benefits, and one expanding criteria for deporting immigrants. Done. — Streamline and improve the naturalization process for green-card holders. In progress. Biden signed an executive order in February to improve the naturalization process, and the Department of Homeland Security has since revoked some Trump-era rules. — End family separation policy and create a task force to reunite families separated at the border. Done. Biden signed executive orders ending the policy and establishing a task force focused on reuniting families. Only a handful of families have been reunited thus far due to difficulties locating the parents. — Protect young immigrants brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents by reinstating the Obama-era policy defending them and their families from deportation. In progress. Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in March his agency was issuing a rule to “preserve and fortify” the policy, which would deprioritize young immigrants from deportation, but the policy itself is still facing challenges in court. — End prolonged migrant detention and invest in a case-management system to process people. Broken. There’s been no announcement of added investments in case-management systems. While the administration said in March it would attempt to release parents and children within 72 hours of their arrival, officials acknowledged that hundreds of children have been held by Border Patrol for much longer. The administration is struggling with an increase in unaccompanied minors arriving at the border and a lack of facilities to house them. DOMESTIC POLICY Done. — Establish police oversight board. Abandoned. The Biden administration decided to scrap the idea based on input from civil rights groups and police unions. — Direct attorney general to deliver a list of recommendations for restructuring the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and other Justice Department agencies to better enforce gun laws. Not yet. — Direct FBI to issue report on delays in background checks for gun purchases. Not yet. FOREIGN POLICY — “End the forever wars in Afghanistan and the Middle East” and terminate U.S. involvement in the Yemen civil war. Mixed. The U.S. ended the 20-year war in Afghanistan in August, albeit in a bloody and chaotic fashion. The administration, however, announced in November it would sell $650 million worth of air-to-air missiles Saudi Arabia, a central player in the Yemen conflict. — Put human rights at the center of foreign policy. Mixed. Biden has repeatedly called out China for targeting democracy activists in Hong Kong and human rights abuses against Uyghur and ethnic minorities. He’s also raised concerns about the jailing and treatment of Russian opposition leader Alexei Navalny. He declined to hold Saudi Arabia’s crown prince, Mohammed bin Salman, directly responsible for the killing of U.S.-based journalist Jamal Khashoggi despite U.S. intelligence showing Salman approved of the hit. — Improve ties with allies who had rocky relations with Trump. Mixed. Biden won praise from allies for his efforts to reclaim U.S. leadership on climate issues. Indo-Pacific leaders have been pleased by coordination efforts on China policy. Biden acknowledged his administration stumbled with the rollout of a deal to provide nuclear submarine technology to Australia, a move that torpedoed a $66 billion French deal and led to Paris temporarily recalling its ambassador to Washington. His decision to move forward with the U.S. military withdrawal in Afghanistan rankled some NATO allies who sought to extend the mission to stave off a Taliban takeover. — Quickly rejoin the so long as Tehran comes back into compliance. Not accomplished. Indirect talks haven’t collapsed, but White House hopes are fading.
