ACLU: Biden to allow 2,000 ‘vulnerable’ migrants into U.S.

WASHINGTON / NBC News — The Biden administration will allow roughly 2,000 “particularly vulnerable” immigrants to enter the United States as they await their immigration hearings, according to the American Civil Liberties Union.

The group of migrants includes those who are sick, families with very young kids, or immigrants who have been threatened or attacked while they wait in Mexico. All have been identified to Customs and Border Protection by international humanitarian organizations, officials with the ACLU said.

In the future, the program will allow 250 people to enter each day, as long as they test negative for COVID-19, according to the ACLU.

Those migrants will be in addition to all unaccompanied children and some families that have already been allowed to enter the United States by the Biden administration.

Others have been blocked under a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention authority known as Title 42 intended to stop the spread of COVID-19.

Another modification by the Biden administration as part of the lawsuit was an agreement to temporarily suspend the practice of flying immigrants who cross into the U.S. in the Rio Grande Valley region of Texas to El Paso, Texas, or San Ysidro, California, to expel them there, according to the ACLU.

The so-called “lateral flights,” allowed CBP to spread its resources to process immigrants away from the Rio Grande Valley, the busiest border area for migrant traffic.

Although the flights have been suspended, they could restart at any time, according to the ACLU.

The Department of Homeland Security and CBP did not immediately respond to a request for comment on either policy.
