Biden’s Executive Order: A Drastic Move to Curb Migrant Influx

Date:

spot_img

In a move to address the escalating migrant crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, President Biden is preparing to sign an executive order that could suspend asylum requests if the daily arrival rates exceed 2,500 migrants. This threshold is currently being met, meaning the order could take immediate effect.

The order also stipulates the border would reopen for asylum seekers once the numbers drop below 1,500 per day. President Biden is expected to unveil these measures today with border mayors in attendance at the White House. This action represents the president’s most aggressive unilateral attempt to manage the border situation following the collapse of bipartisan immigration legislation.

The administration is exploring options including utilizing the CPB One app to facilitate asylum requests at ports of entry. Legal challenges are anticipated with advocacy groups and some Democratic lawmakers expressing concerns over the implications of such a policy.

As the president prepares to announce these measures, a potential need for cooperation with Mexico and the logistical challenges of implementing such an order are at the forefront of the discussions.
