Biden to sign executive order on border limiting migrant inflows

WASHINGTON (NewsNation) —  President Joe Biden is expected to sign an executive order Tuesday that would limit the flow of migrant illegal crossings at the U.S.-Mexico border.

Biden is weighing granting himself the power to deport immigrants in the country illegally once crossings surpass a certain number per day, a threshold that’s frequently exceeded, including this past April.

The anticipated order comes as Biden faces mounting criticism from both parties over the crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border, with record numbers of migrant encounters straining federal resources.

The Tuesday signing would come two days after Mexico elected a new president, who will become the first woman president in the country’s 200-year history.

2.5K daily migrant crossings would trigger shutdown

The Associated Press reported the order would shut down the border after 2,500 daily encounters and the border would reopen once the number of encounters drops below 1,500.

The impact of the 2,500 figure means that the executive order could go into immediate effect because daily crossings are higher than that now.

According to U.S. Customs and Border Protection, there were 179,725 encounters by Border Patrol agents along the southern border in April, which averages to 5,991 encounters per day.

So far this fiscal year, CBP has reported more than 1.5 million encounters along the southern border, consistent with last year’s record-setting numbers.

The last time the daily average dipped to 1,500 encounters was in July 2020, at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic, per the Associated Press.

White House event leaves out some border town officials

Biden is expected to unveil his plan alongside invited mayors of border cities; however, some communities hit hardest by the border crisis feel they’ve have been left out in the cold.

Several Republican and Democratic mayors weren’t invited, including the mayor of El Cajon, California, in the Border Patrol’s San Diego Sector, who shared a statement with NewsNation that Biden handpicked the invited mayors.

“This is nothing but a sham and an insult to those of us dealing with the real consequences of his failed border policies,” Mayor Bill Wells said.

Brownsville, Texas, Mayor John Cowen and Edinburg, Texas, Mayor Ramiro Garza confirmed to the Associated Press that they were invited.

The White House also invited all Democratic senators to the event, but several in competitive races declined the invitation, Axios reported. At least Sens. Jon Tester of Montana; Tammy Baldwin of Wisconsin; Jacky Rosen of Nevada; and Bob Casey of Pennsylvania — all of whom are seeking reelection in battleground states — will not attend, per Axios.

Progressives warn against asylum crackdown

Jennie Murray, president and CEO of the nonpartisan immigrant advocacy group National Immigration Forum, told NewsNation her organization doesn’t support executive orders and that she believes a cap on asylum-seekers would only be a “Band-Aid” on the problem.

“We don’t need to see anything else being compounded down there, and an executive order. While it looks on the surface as if it would be a solution, it will compound the issue, we will have more of the asylum seekers, you know, backed up.”

Meanwhile, Rep. Nancy Mace, R-S.C., told “The Hill Sunday” that the executive order needs to include limiting and banning migrants from crossing the border illegally.

“The devil is always in the details. Like that Senate bill that came through, there were a lot of great ideas. But for every good idea, there was a loophole on the next page that basically meant nothing. So, I would want to make sure that we’re building the wall, that we are limiting and banning these people from coming across the border illegally,” she said.

House Speaker Mike Johnson, R-La., declined to give the Biden administration credit for acting on the U.S. border as they work to clamp down on illegal immigration. He said the bill is “too little too late now” on “Fox News Sunday.”
