Biden to allow over one million migrants per year to cross the border

 June 2, 2023

The Biden administration is doubling the number of immigrants allowed to enter the nation through the CPB One app despite a recent Texas lawsuit.

The monthly totals will now allow 38,750 migrants each month to cross the southern border, including access to housing and government assistance.

The concern

“This is a continuation of the Biden administration’s expansion of lawful pathways and opportunities to access them, including CBP One appointments,” Homeland Security spokesperson Erin Heeter said.

“The process cuts out smugglers while also providing a safe, orderly, and humane process for noncitizens to access ports of entry instead of attempting to enter the United States unlawfully," the statement added.

The lawsuit

"Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is suing the Biden administration over a newly-implemented asylum rule, arguing that the use of a controversial CBP One application is being used to circumvent federal law," Fox News reported.

"The lawsuit targets a rule that was proposed earlier this year, and went into effect as the Title 42 public health order ended earlier this month. The rule presumes migrants to be ineligible for asylum if they have entered illegally and have failed to claim asylum in a country through which they have already traveled," it added.

Since the expansion of the mobile app CBP One in January, the Biden administration’s app approved 99% of migrants seeking exceptions to the COVID-era Title 42 public health order that allows border officials to quickly expel migrants from the United States," one outlet reported.

"The app, which has received scrutiny from politicians on both sides of the aisle, was launched to encourage migrants to apply for entry into the country in a 'safe and orderly' manner and discourage illegal immigration, according to Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas," it added.

The app was pitched as a solution to slowing illegal immigration. It is now instead streamlining the process to make it easier to break the law to enter the nation.

The Texas lawsuit is one effort to stop the growing numbers that are impacting the Lone Star State and spreading nationwide.

The Biden administration's latest move may appear to help but is now adding to the already record number of migrants pouring across the southern border and threatening national security.
