Biden to Allow 25,000 Asylum Seekers to Enter US

Updated: Feb 13


What Happened:

  • On Friday, the Biden administration announced that it plans on allowing tens of thousands of asylum seekers to enter the US while they are awaiting their immigration court hearings.

  • Authorities say they will begin letting in asylum seekers with active cases from Mexico on Feb 19th. There are an estimated 25,000 asylum seekers with active cases in Mexico.

  • This dismantles a Trump-era policy which sought to deter asylum seekers from entering the US.

  • The rollout will be slow at first with approximately 600 people being processed per day.
