Immigration Enforcement Update

Washington Examiner (Michael Barone): Enter the Biden administration, quickly stopping wall construction and scuttling Remain-in-Mexico. Anyone purported to be seeking asylum is admitted, often flown to the Northeast, and, sometimes, given an easily ignored order to attend a hearing. Official numbers tell an alarming though surely understated story. Southern border crossings fell under 50,000 a month in mid-2019 and throughout 2020, then zoomed to 160,000 a month in 2021 and have plateaued there every month. Border apprehensions from October to March stayed under (sometimes far under) 400,000 from 2012 to 2020. They soared to 1,000,000 in the six months ending March 2022.

NBC News: The Biden administration will be filling the border wall gaps near Yuma, Arizona.
