“President Joe Biden’s executive order, blocking asylum-seekers from crossing the southern border between official points of entry, was characterized by the American Civil Liberties Union as the ‘same approach as the Trump administration’s asylum ban.’ The New York Times headlined that the order ‘leans on Trump’s favorite immigration law,’ and CNN said it ‘pulls from Trump’s immigration playbook. ‘Such statements may be narrowly correct but ignore context. Fundamentally, Biden and Trump do not have the same approach to immigration because they do not share the same vision for America.” [editor’s note: “My guy is doing exactly what your guy did, but he’s still better because I waaaaaaaaaannnnttt him to be.” Scher is usually better than this – TLK] (06/06/24)
