Border Crossings Diminishes by 95%

By February 8, 2023February 14th, 2023No Comments

According to recent calculations, border crossings have diminished by 95% which is an extraordinary step up according to the Biden administration who prompts the decline to be the result of new border measurements. Despite the fact that fewer migrants are entering from countries including Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, and Haiti, Republicans as well as some Democrats continue to criticize the new regulations that were put into place.

On January 5th, the government said that anybody entering the country illegally between authorized ports of entry from Cuba, Nicaragua, Venezuela, or Haiti would be denied the opportunity to request asylum after being caught. Cubans and Nicaraguans in particular have been crossing ports of entry in huge numbers lately, often escaping economic and political suffering in their home countries, and the United States has been unable to deport them due to diplomatic limitations with the governments of those nations. However, now, Mexico has agreed to accept nationals from these countries under United States public health policy Title 42. Many immigration activists have criticized the policies, arguing that it is strange that the government is utilizing an enforcement strategy that they have concluded is no longer necessary given the pandemic severity has decreased immensely.

In addition to the new regulations, the Biden administration has also established legal avenues for persons from certain nations for a two-year humanitarian parole to the United States, including the option to apply for a work permit right away. Overall, these efforts to control unlawful border crossings seem to be working.
