Mark Krikorian, Executive Director at the Center for Immigration Studies talked to John & Ken about Biden's border plans.
From Fox News:
President Biden on Thursday used a major White House speech to announce expanded border measures, ahead of his first-ever visit to the besieged southern border next week — as his administration struggles to deal with a historic surge in migrants.
"These actions alone that I'm going to announce today aren't going to fix our entire immigration system, but they can help us a good deal in managing what is a difficult challenge," he said.
Biden announced an expansion of a humanitarian parole program for Venezuelan nationals to include Haitians, Cubans and Nicaraguans. That program will allow 30,000 individuals a month from all four countries to be paroled into the U.S. for a two-year period as long as they have a financial sponsor and pass other conditions. Those who attempt to enter illegally are made ineligible for the program.
"We anticipate this action is going to substantially reduce the number of people attempting to cross our southwest border without going through a legal process," he said.
