The Biden administration has just giving illegal immigrants an extra loophole when in comes to immigration.
Federal immigrations authorities have just issued a new policy which states migrants who are pregnant or nursing children should not be arrested or deported.
The new policy is extremely weak compared to the policy that the Trump administration held which gave no hall passes to anybody that was attempting to come into the country illegally.
Many expect migrants will now purposely enter the United States while pregnant or human traffic other peoples babies and claim that they are nursing them in order to get a free ticket in to the United Sates.

Fox News covered the story check out what they reported:
U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) will no longer detain most pregnant, nursing, and postpartum women for deportation, reversing a Trump-era directive Friday
The latest adjustment to U.S. immigration policies adds to the growing list of restrictions placed on ICE officers – a move that has further frustrated members of the GOP.
While the Biden administration has said they are looking to make the U.S. immigration system more humane, Republicans have argued Biden’s policies have created a humanitarian crisis at the border and permitted unrestricted illegal immigration.
“There’s nothing humane about encouraging human trafficking of infants and pregnant women,” Arkansas Republican Sen. Tom Cotton said Friday. “This policy will make the Biden border crisis worse.”

CNN covered the story too:
Immigration and Customs Enforcement has issued a new policy that states women known to be pregnant or nursing should not be detained, arrested or taken into custody unless release is prohibited, according to newly-released guidance.
The move is a shift away from the Trump administration, when immigration officers were directed to no longer default to trying to release pregnant women who fall into immigration custody. The Obama administration policy urged officers to presume a pregnant woman could be released except for extreme circumstances.
In an ICE notice sent to members of Congress on Friday and obtained by CNN, acting Director Tae Johnson said the change “reflects our commitment to treat all individuals with respect and dignity while still enforcing our nation’s laws.”
