Imagine if you started as an executive at a company and you fired everyone or tried to fire everyone.
From the associate executives on down to the janitors, you tried to fire everyone. The shareholders would look at you as if you were insane.
Now, there’s bound to be some changes whenever a government switches from one head to another, but you simply cannot get rid of everyone.
In yet another instance of Joe Biden violating his own calls for “unity,” the former vice president has vowed to ensure there is a “thorough investigation” by the Department of Justice into officials within President Trump’s administration.
According to Biden, the investigation will center around individuals who crafted and implemented the “Zero Tolerance” policy used to deter illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border.
At a January 8 press conference, Biden committed to opening a DOJ investigation into any Trump officials involved in carrying out the Zero Tolerance policy, which led to adult border crossers being held separately from children they arrived at the border with.
There are several reasons for the use of this process, including ensuring that the children being brought by these adults are not being trafficked, and are actually related to the adults they arrive with. The practice has been used since before 2001, including during the Obama administration. The Trump administration ended the practice in June of 2018.
“I’ll commit that our Justice Department, our investigative arms, will make judgments about who is responsible … and whether or not the conduct is criminal across the board. But as I said yesterday, I am not going to tell the Justice Department who they should prosecute and who they should not,” Joe Biden said.
“There will be a thorough, thorough investigation of who is responsible and whether or not their responsibility is criminal, and if that is the [conclusion], the Attorney General will make that judgment,” he added.
Joe Biden also hinted that he will grant amnesty for the majority of the 11 to 22 million illegal immigrants living in the United States, and revoke several executive orders that were issued by President Trump to reform the legal immigration system, which admits around 1.2 million green card holders each year.
