Biden to slowly allow 25000 asylum seekers into US

Mexico’s President Supports Biden Decision to Stop New Border Wall Construction

About 70,000 asylum-seekers were enrolled in the programme officially called Migrant Protection Protocols since it was introduced in January 2019.

Approximately 25,000 individuals have active cases, the agency said.

"I've had, already, two long, very good conversations with the president", Johnson said, insisting there has been "important developments in the way UK-US thinking has been coming together in the last few weeks".

It still houses around 40 detainees, 26 of whom are considered too risky to be released, but legal proceedings drag on due to the complexity of their cases.

"This latest action is another step in our commitment to reform immigration policies that do not align with our nation's values", DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas said in a statement.

Trump challenged China over its trade policies by imposing punishing tariffs, an instrument he also used on traditional allies, drawing criticism for not taking a more unified approach with United States friends to stand up to Beijing on issues such as intellectual property theft and other economic practices.

An agreement with the Mexican government has allowed the US border officials to send back more than 70,000 migrants to Mexico, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University's analysis.

On the day Biden was inaugurated, the DHS announced that new registrations of "Remain in Mexico" program should be halted but instructed those that enrolled to remain where they are till the United States government says otherwise.

Washington said Friday that applicants "should not come to the border before they are asked to do so".

In Mexico, president Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, at his press briefing, welcomed Biden's move.

He will also discuss the need for industrialised nations to ensure their economic recovery "is inclusive and benefits all workers, including women and members of historically disadvantaged groups", the White House said in a statement.

Immigrants in Mexico welcomed the policy change in Washington.

'Life is very hard in Central America and we are grateful to the president for making that decision and helping Central America, ' said Madrid, who has been in Ciudad Juarez for almost two years.
