After close to two years in office, President Joe Biden initiated new policies for migrants to legally come to the country. This was after 2022 set a record year for migrants who crossed the southern border.
One policy requires migrants to use the CBP One app which makes them request asylum using the app that migrants can use on a smartphone.
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton recently filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration saying the app allows migrants to get around the immigration laws.
The lawsuit takes aim at the Biden administration and said:
"In a farcical attempt to address the invasion of illegal aliens across the southern border following the end of Title 42, the Biden Administration published a new Final Rule inviting migrants to download an app to schedule a convenient time and place to cross the border illegally.”
The lawsuit mentioned:
"The Biden Administration’s attempt to manage the southern border by app does not meet even the lowest expectation of competency and runs afoul of the laws Congress passed to regulate immigration, and the Final Rule should be enjoined."
“Joe Biden, [Secretary of Homeland Security] Alejandro Mayorkas and the entire Biden Administration have prioritized creating and protecting new ways for illegal aliens to stream into this country, no matter the cost or consequence to struggling American citizens.”
The attorney general may be helped by comments made by Homeland Security Secretary when he makes comments supporting migrants crossing the border.
“This Administration has led the largest expansion of legal pathways for protection in decades, and this regulation will encourage migrants to seek access to those pathways instead of arriving unlawfully in the grip of smugglers at the southern border.”
Do you think the CBP One app is illegal?
