Struggling to manage the overflow of migrants at the border, the Biden administration is reportedly allowing asylum seekers to depart custody into the U.S. without scheduling a date for a court hearing.
It’s a kind of “honor code” that the Biden Administration is allegedly permitting, and the concern is that it will cause an even greater influx of migrants at the border.
According to a report on Fox, border agents at the Grande Valley Sector “have begun to process and release illegal border crossers who claim asylum without issuing a Notice to Appear (NTA) – allowing them to depart custody without scheduling a court date for a heading.
Alejandro Mayorkas, the head of the department of homeland security, recently said that border crossing were the highest in 20 years. He is blaming the Trump administration for the influx, but, critics point to signaling from the Biden Administration that suggested the U.S. would be willing to take illegal border crossers into the country.
Meanwhile, the conditions at the Southwest border have become so poor with a reported nearly 15,000 children currently in Federal Custody that DHS has even begun asking for volunteers to help address the crisis.
On Friday, it was reported that the federal authorities were so concerned about recent overflow at the Rio Grande border that they were seeking planes to fly migrants to northern states so they could be processed at the Canadian border.
