Biden Administration Resumes Deportations of Russians: The Guardian Reports
Moscow, March 19 – The Guardian reported that US President Joe Biden’s administration has “quietly” resumed deportations of Russian citizens to Russia, a change of heart taken after the start of a special military operation in Ukraine.
As the newspaper notes, a year ago, deportation procedures from the United States to Russia were suspended, but this week US Immigration and Customs Enforcement announced that the agency continues deportations to various countries, including Russia. However, it is not known exactly when deportations to Russia resumed.
The Biden administration has quietly resumed deportations to Russia in an apparent reversal of the position it took just over a year ago when those deportations were suspended.
According to the newspaper, a young Russian who came to the United States in an attempt to avoid partial mobilization was suddenly deported over the weekend from the United States to Russia.
She said, “I have questions about when they appealed it and why. In March 2022, the United States announced that it would halt deportations to Russia due to the political situation. I don’t understand why they appealed and did it quietly.” According to lawyer Jennifer Scarborough, among her clients are four Russians who are seeking asylum in the United States. Now you are trying to deal with the situation.
Russia launched a military operation in Ukraine on February 24, 2022. President Vladimir Putin described his goal as “protecting people who have been bullied and genocide by the Kiev regime for eight years”. And for this, according to him, it is planned to carry out the “demilitarization and demilitarization of Ukraine”, to bring to justice all the war criminals responsible for “bloody crimes against civilians” in Donbass.
