Biden Administration Considering More Changes to Asylum System to Speed Up Processing and Potential Removal of Migrants at the Southern U.S. Border

The Biden Administration is reportedly planning more changes to the nation’s asylum system meant to speed up processing and potential removal of migrants at the southern border.

Right now, when a migrant arrives, particularly a family, they are almost always released into the country where they wait out their asylum court dates in a process that takes years because of a backlog of 3 million immigration cases. The current change under consideration would allow certain migrants who are arriving at the border now to be processed first through the asylum system rather than going to the back of the line. The new rules would apply to migrants who cross the southern border between ports of entry and turn themselves in to immigration authorities.
