12. The fact that the administration is willing to do something so extreme

 

might reveal the fear of the image of large numbers of Haitian immigrants entering the US. It might also show the determination to make it 100% clear to Haitians that not only will they be unsuccessful in entering the US, but by trying, their situation may become worse.

Also, perhaps the administration is being influenced by what is happening in Europe:

EU member states have used illegal operations to push back at least 40,000 asylum seekers from Europeís borders during the pandemic, methods being linked to the death of more than 2,000 people, the Guardian can reveal.

In one of the biggest mass expulsions in decades, European countries, supported by EUís border agency Frontex, has systematically pushed back refugees, including children fleeing from wars, in their thousands, using illegal tactics ranging from assault to brutality during detention or transportation.

Frankly I think the Biden administration's policy is in-line with mainstream American views, and that might explain everything.
