United States Customs and Border Protection 178,622 people arrested along the Mexican border April saw the highest number of fears in at least two decades.
About 63 percent of detainees who attempted to cross the southwest border have been expelled from the United States, the agency said in a press release. The number of minors taken into custody fell by 12 percent to 13,962 from March, according to the agency.
The number of immigrants detained on the southwestern border has risen for twelve consecutive months, according to customs and border guards. President Biden promised a more humane approach to immigration than President Donald J. Trump. Some immigrants, many of whom are fleeing the poor economic conditions in Mexico and Central America, hope that it may be easier for them to enter the United States.
While Mr Biden pledged to overturn some of Mr Trump’s policies, he has urged immigrants to stay at home and given customs and border guards more powers to send back detained immigrants in accordance with applicable coronavirus protocols.
