Biden Allowing 25,000 Illegals Seeking Asylum into US from Mexico

The Biden administration is planning on allowing approximately 25,000 illegal migrants, who were in the “Remain in Mexico” program and are seeking asylum, into the U.S. as they await their immigration court cases.

In January, President Biden signed an executive order to shut down the Trump administration’s Migrant Protection Protocol (MPP), also known as the “Remain in Mexico” program.

The administration will start allowing illegal migrants into the U.S. on February 19.

Unsurprisingly, migrants are responding to Biden’s less restrictive views on immigration based on an uptick in border encounters according to the ranking member on the House Homeland Security Committee Representative John Katko (R-NY).

Fox News reports:

“As CBP encounters at the border top 3,000 a day on average, we have swiftly moved into the dangerous territory of the 2019 border crisis,” he said. “The situation at the border, combined with the raging pandemic, has created a perfect storm of security, humanitarian, and public health concerns.”

Fox News host Tucker Carlson blasted the Biden administration for not testing illegal migrants for COVID-19 (2:45).

It’s also reported the migrants will not be tracked once they are in the U.S.

Critics commented on social media.

Biden’s actions are igniting a surge of migrants that is creating a border crisis which will harm the U.S. and many migrants as well.
