Biden to sign immigration executive order

Like Love Haha Wow Sad Angry

President Joe Biden is reportedly planning to unveil a sweeping new executive order aimed at curbing migrant arrivals at the US-Mexico border.
The executive action is likely to allow US officials to shut off asylum requests once a daily threshold is met, allowing border officials to limit the amount of migrant arrivals, according to media.
More than 6.4 million migrants have been stopped crossing into the US illegally during Joe Biden’s administration – a record high that has left him politically vulnerable as he campaigns for re-election.
Migrant arrivals have plummeted this year, however, although experts believe the trend is not likely to be sustainable.

The law, known as 212(f), allows the US president to “suspend the entry” of foreigners if their arrival is “detrimental to the interests” of the country.
The same regulation was used by the Trump administration to ban immigration and travel from several predominantly Muslim countries and to bar migrants from asylum if they were apprehended crossing into the US illegally, provoking accusations of racism.
Additionally, CBS has reported that the US is planning to send some Latin American migrants to Greece and Italy for resettlement as part of a wider plan to provide legal immigration pathways.
A White House official told the BBC that no final decisions have been made on possible executive actions.
