Biden Dismisses Over Three Hundred Thousand Asylum Applications from Immigrants

( – The White House is finalizing plans for a clampdown on U.S-Mexico migrants that would shut off requests and automatically deny entrance to anyone who put in a request. With this, the Biden administration has allowed hundreds of thousands of migrants to remain in the United States.

A report was released by Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which is a data organization that tracks information like immigration cases and backlogs. The organization tracked over three hundred and fifty thousand asylum cases that were closed by the United States Government. They were able to close these requests on the basis that those who filed were not criminals and weren’t a threat to the U.S.

Once the cases are terminated without a decision, they are then removed from the legal system and they don’t have to check in with any authorities. This also means that they can travel within the United States without worrying about being deported.

It was reported that the Immigration and Customs Enforcement principal legal advisor Kerry Doyle said to dismiss cases of immigrants who did not pose a threat to the United States.

This year there have been one hundred and seventy thousand immigrant asylum applications and over one hundred thousand of them have been dismissed. Those who have been dismissed no longer have to worry about being deported and they aren’t required to leave the United States.

The applicants that have been dismissed can apply again or they can seek out another form of legal status like an employment-based visa or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The number of asylum seekers and cases and judge hearings are set to be at an all-time high this year already in comparison to previous years.

The court backlog has gone from almost three million at the end of last year to almost four million this year, and immigration judges are unable to keep up with the demand for immigration cases. Biden is looking into additional executive orders to combat the immigration issues like capping the daily amount of asylum seekers or other policies that would help to alleviate the amount of immigrants coming into the border.
