New Biden Policy Welcomes Migrants

By January 25, 2023January 31st, 2023No Comments

The United States is on track to triple the number of refugees admitted from the Western Hemisphere as a result of the Biden-Harris Administration’s intention to accept more refugees from Latin American and Caribbean nations than ever before between Fiscal Years 2023 and 2024. Prior to President Joe Biden’s visit to El Paso, Texas, he unveiled a new immigration policy that will allow up to 30,000 migrants to legally enter the nation every month from Cuba, Haiti, Nicaragua, and Venezuela in order to work in the United States for up to two years.

In order to be eligible to enter the United States under the new policy, the immigrants must submit an application from their home countries, pass a background check, and demonstrate that they have a source of financial support in the United States. According to the new proposal, the Biden administration will also start using Title 42, an emergency health order, to send the same number of migrants from those four nations to Mexico if they try to enter the United States illegally. Mexico has agreed to take up to 30,000 migrants every month from the following nations under Title 42, as declared by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). Any additional migrants exceeding the 30,000-number maximum will just be processed by immigration authorities in accordance with ordinary immigration procedures. The normal process might result in deportation and a five-year ban on being able to reenter the country lawfully.
