I Prayed have prayed
Father, we thank You for this step taken by Biden to ease the border crisis. Continue to give our leaders wisdom, Lord, as they deal with this issue.

After working on the border wall earlier this year, Biden is once again working to secure our border. This is progress!

From New York Daily News. President Biden’s administration quietly announced on Wednesday that Venezuelans who enter the U.S. illegally will be “returned” to Mexico and that those seeking asylum must secure a sponsor, undergo a public safety screening and fulfill certain, as yet unspecified vaccination requirements, according to a statement put out by the Department of Homeland Security.

Connect with others in your state in prayer.


The policy is coming after New York City has buckled for months under the strain of migrants — many of them Venezuelans — streaming into the five boroughs in search of refuge. …

Biden’s new policy — pieces of which were posted with little fanfare on the Department of Homeland Security’s website Wednesday — is similar to former President Donald Trump’s in that it allows for migrants to be sent back to Mexico if they enter the U.S. illegally.

Two areas where the policy differs from Trump’s are the provision that asylum seekers must secure sponsorship in the form of someone providing financial support in the U.S. and a clearer path to legal residency. The Department of Homeland Security did not immediately respond to a message.

According to DHS, the new policy seeks to establish a safer and more orderly process for people fleeing Venezuela and ease the pressure on cities like New York that have been taking in the migrants.

“These actions make clear that there is a lawful and orderly way for Venezuelans to enter the United States, and lawful entry is the only way,” said Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas in a written statement. “Those who attempt to cross the southern border of the United States illegally will be returned to Mexico and will be ineligible for this process in the future. Those who follow the lawful process will have the opportunity to travel safely to the United States and become eligible to work here.”

The new program will also establish new migration checkpoints along the southwestern border, target human smuggling rings, and create a new process to lawfully allow up to 24,000 “qualifying” Venezuelans into the U.S.

Migrants who’ve been ordered removed from the U.S. in the last five years or who have crossed the border illegally after Oct. 12 will be ineligible to remain in the U.S. People who are permanent residents or dual nationals of countries other than Venezuela or who hold refugee status in a country other than the U.S. would also be subject to deportation.

“Venezuelans should not travel to Mexico to pursue entry into the United States,” according to DHS. …

Republicans were declaring victory over the announcement Thursday morning …

City Councilman Joe Borelli (R-Staten Island) suggested the news validated Texas Gov. Greg Abbott’s controversial practice of bussing migrants to New York — a policy Adams has criticized repeatedly for Abbott’s failure to coordinate with him. …

President Biden is also asking Venezuela to provide the U.S. with oil and gas. Venezuela is a dictatorship and all these people fleeing are a testimony to what life is like in that country. What happens to the people who are returned? Will they be able to go back to their life, such as it was, or will they be punished? President Biden seems to have made a deal with Venezuela to increase oil shipments to the U.S. I am not for illegal immigration but this deal seems to have a very “high” cost, human lifes.

I just want people to prayerfully consider this. Actions such as this are, perhaps a PR op before the midterms. Since Venezuela has been absolutely crushed under active communist socialism since 2004, the present Biden admin singled them out because they are afraid that those from Venezuela….will, most likely, be opposed to the Democratic party, who are doing everything to install socialism in this nation. Those from Venezuela will & are recognizing it, therefore probably not going to vote / support Dems but instead vote/support for another party — a party that refuses to openly embrace socialism.
We must keep in mind the present, nonstop “scheming” that is going on with the present admin. They do not rest because when someone is doing the work of Satan, evil plans, deception, schemes, etc. become the norm.
Please prayerfully consider this & pray accordingly. Singling out the Venezuelan people, regardless of the reasoning being sold to us….is very questionable. Please pray for the truth “to come forward” in anyway possible.
As an example, whether we like or share Tulsi Gabbards views….her departure from the Dem party & reasons she gave are insight into the inner workings of the Dem party. God often uses people that don’t know Him…to show Christians exactly what’s going on.

Thank You Father for the action taken by the Biden administration and may it truly be enforced. Grant wisdom and counsel to this Biden administration and true leadership to govern the US in righteousness, truth, and with justice. We cry out for Your help above all else, in Jesus Christ name.

Truly, I believe we are trying to see the good, no matter what. It gets so difficult when crumbs of deception keep getting thrown, tossed out to distract from the truth of what is happening! More drugs and human trafficiking just flooding our country more disease and economic disastrr than we could ever have imagined, more ranchers’ land and neighborhoods destroyed, more of our natrual land land deatroyed with human waste and garbage no one is taking care of! God Knows, God Sees, and He will end it His way if we soon do not. This is His world after all, we are supposed to be good stewards of it. Sadly, all of us have failed in one way or another. Our prayers need more feet on the ground.

To God (YHWH for clarity) be all the glory all the time!
It seems the Venezuelans are again singled out to evil. Still, this administration and DHS threw the boomerang and it’s returning heavier and faster.

Could be an election ploy.

This is hyperbole.The borders are wide open to all immigrants.To signify any kind of a sincere change this should be done for all immigrants.
If your looking for something here stop looking.
The damage to our nation has been done and this administration is doing it on purpose to bring down the economy causing a straining on all internal systems.
So they can build back better and introduce their socialist society.

    Yes I completely agree with you Anything this corrupt administration does is for trying to get more control I’m praying that Biden retires and leaves our nation and gets saved CHRIST JESUS IS LORD AMEN ✝️🛐♥️

I don’t believe that the changes came from from Biden; I believe that the changes came from Homeland Security Secretary, Alejandro Mayorkas, because 2 former top officials have spoke out against him, saying that he’s the most dangerous man in America. One called for him to be fired, the other for him to resign. “Two former senior officials of Mayorkas’ department who served in both the Obama and Trump administrations agree Mayorkas should either resign or be fired.”
And many senators and governor’s are saying the same.

You know they are only doing this because the Mid-term elections are in November. I hope people won’t be fooled because of things they are trying to do before November.

It’s a start but doesn’t go nearly far enough. This should apply to ALL illegals! Father, I pray that our borders would be closed completely until those who have entered illegally are removed from the United States.
