Biden promises moratorium on deportations as both candidates pledge lax enforcement of immigration law

Byron York, Washington Examiner

Both Biden and Sanders join with their party's move to the left on immigration. The two men agreed on what would be an unprecedented loosening of U.S. immigration enforcement. Both promised to immediately end the Trump administration's practice of making thousands of illegal border crossers wait in Mexico while their asylum claims are considered in the United States. Both promised to send more immigration judges to the border to decide those claims. And both promised not to detain anyone while those decisions were being made. Finally, both candidates said they would support sanctuary cities that defy federal authorities seeking to enforce immigration law.
