My name is Aaron Stevenson and I'm a federal employee with the Dept. of Homeland Security. I chose to come forward publicly to notify the American public of a potential rule change between DHS and DOJ which will ensure the current open borders practice remains in place regardless of any future border security efforts. This rule change is a direct hypocrisy from the platform that President Biden ran on; furthermore, I believe this rule change was initiated by federal employees who have no accountability to the American citizens we are supposed to be protecting. In short, CBP and ICE won't have to be defunded--this rule change will ensure the current open borders practice will stay in effect, all the while the policy has never been in the public square for debate (let alone consent). This rule change will undercut legal immigration, continue to harm our national security posture, and continue to erode working class wages.
I have spent 17 years of my professional life as a servant of the United States government; 8 years in the U.S. Marines and 9 years as a federal employee. I ask for your help since my employment with the federal government will be terminated. Like many of you, I have children and your support will help me keep their lives balanced as I begin a new profession, which will still be actively involved in doing my part to help ensuring the American people stay informed of the practices of their government.
Like you, I am worried about the future for our children. I have decided that if I am able to do something about it, I will. I thank you in advance, and I will try my best to respond to you all individually.
