Donald Trump lashes out at Joe Biden over Mexico border crisis

That process was slowed considerably by a Trump administration policy of "enhanced vetting", in which details were sent to immigration officials and some sponsors wound up getting arrested, prompting some to fear picking up children over worries of being deported.

He also criticized the Secretary of the Department of Home Security Alejandro Mayorkas' interview on Sunday, where he put the blame for the situation at the border on the former administration due to the partial abolition of the infrastructure for the temporary accommodation of illegal immigrants.

One of those measures would provide green cards and eventual citizenship to young undocumented immigrants, known as Dreamers, who were brought to the U.S.as children, and legal status for migrant agricultural workers.

Sen. Chris Murphy on Friday said he "fought back tears" during a visit to a U.S. Customs and Border Protection detention facility in Texas holding hundreds of migrant children from Mexico, Central America, and beyond.

Further, the Biden administration continues to rapidly send back most single adults and families whom federal agents stop at the border under a public health order issued by Trump at the start of the coronavirus pandemic.

U.S. President Joe Biden on Sunday said he planned to visit the border with Mexico "at some point" and his administration was working to ensure that potential migrants applied for asylum in their home countries.

"The only way to end the Biden Border Crisis is for them to admit their total failure and adopt the profoundly effective, proven Trump policies", the statement read. "I haven't seen a plan".

The number of unaccompanied migrant children in United States custody surpassed 15,000 as of Saturday.

The administration also has been pressed as to why it will not allow media to see the facilities at the border. The administration is looking to welcome almost 120,000 Unaccompanied Alien Children (UACs) into the USA this year, Breitbart reported.

Two months into the Biden presidency, an immediate crisis on the border has begun to test the new administration.

The main risks are political - for Democrats, forced to defend the administration's border policies as they seek to retain control of Congress next year - and humanitarian, for unaccompanied minors who have been packed into ill-equipped border stations.

The senator said the children looked "exhausted" yet "hopeful". He said the US was working to address the issue with Mexico and Central American countries where the asylum seekers are coming from.

More than 500 of the roughly 4,500 unaccompanied children being held in sparse border patrol facilities as of Thursday have been there for more than 10 days, above the legal three-day limit, according to USA government data shared with Reuters. "There's no other way to claim it than a Biden border crisis". "They come every year around this time, when the weather pattern changes".

The Homeland chief spoke on four Sunday talk shows as pressure mounts on the Biden administration over conditions at the U.S. -Mexico border.

Officials are trying to build up capacity to care for some 14,000 migrants now in federal custody - and more likely on the way.

He said three new facilities had been opened to handle border arrivals just last week. "We can (process them) in a safe and orderly manner".
