Biden Considers “Remain in Texas” Plan for Border Crossers

Objectivity 4.5 | Credibility 4.8 | Relevance 4.8

President Biden is considering a plan to keep illegal immigrants with questionable asylum claims in Texas for easier deportation if their initial asylum screenings fail. He also seeks to curb mass migration to Democrat-run states and cities. Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas, who has been working to curb illegal immigration, opposes this plan. Biden’s proposal is in contrast to former President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, which required border crossers to stay in Mexico while awaiting immigration hearings. The “Remain in Texas” program would involve GPS monitoring for a select group of border crossers, representing a shift in immigration enforcement policies.
