AP-NORC poll: Border woes dent Biden approval on immigration

  AP-NORC poll: Border woes dent Biden approval on immigration WASHINGTON (AP) — More Americans disapprove than approve of how President Joe Biden is handling waves of unaccompanied migrant children arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border, and approval of his efforts on larger immigration policy falls short of other top issues — suggesting it could be a weak point for the new administration. A new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research also shows that solving the problem of young people at the border is among Americans' highest immigration priorities: 59% say providing safe treatment of unaccompanied children when they are apprehended should be a high priority, and 65% say the same about reuniting families

The Biden administration’s suspension of a 2019 program requiring U.S.-bound migrants to remain in Mexico during their immigration proceedings violated federal law by failing to weigh alternative plans or consider the impact on states, Texas and Missouri said in a lawsuit.

(Bloomberg) -- The Biden administration’s decision to halt former President Donald Trump’s controversial “Remain in Mexico” policy for asylum seekers is making the situation at the border worse and allowing criminals to slip into the country undetected, Texas and Missouri said in a lawsuit.

The Department of Homeland Security’s January suspension of the 2019 program, which forced thousands of U.S.-bound migrants to stay in Mexico during their immigration proceedings, violated federal law by failing to weigh alternatives to the plan or consider its impact on states, according to a suit filed Tuesday in federal court in Amarillo, Texas.

The ruling dealt a death blow to Trump ' s desperate and unsuccessful efforts to reverse Biden 's projected Electoral College victory. It came three days before electors are set to cast their ballots in their respective states, finalizing the Democratic former vice president's win. Texas ' suit made the unprecedented request for the Supreme Court to invalidate the election results of the four battleground states by declaring that their Electoral College votes "cannot be counted." Biden 's wins in the four states, which together held 62 electoral votes, had put him over the threshold of 270 electoral votes

Trump’s Migrant Protection Protocols were put in place to “address the migration crisis by diminishing incentives for illegal immigration, weakening cartels and human smugglers, and enabling DHS to better focus its resources on legitimate asylum claims,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and his Missouri counterpart, Eric Schmitt, said in the complaint.

The Republican-led states claim human traffickers and smugglers are taking advantage of the “lapse” in border enforcement and putting communities at risk. They allege the halting of the Trump program pending a review by the Department of Homeland Security violated the Administrative Procedure Act because it was an “arbitrary and capricious” agency action.

“Due to pending litigation, DHS cannot comment at this time,” the Department of Homeland Security said in an email.

The American Civil Liberties Union and the Center for Gender & Refugee Studies are among groups that challenged the Trump administration policy last year. The argued the Trump rule put asylum seekers in “grave danger” by creating a crisis on the Mexican side of the border, exposing migrants to abuse by organized criminal elements and corrupt authorities.
