Biden ups cap on monthly parole screenings for migrants to 43,500
The Biden administration launched the phone app in January as a way for immigrants who had traveled to the U.S.-Mexico border to seek admission without illegally entering the U.S. by crossing between the ports of entry where vehicles are inspected.
CBP described the process as providing a "safe, orderly, and humane process" for immigrants to access ports of entry, avoiding long lines.
Immigrants can request a daily appointment time. The system uses an individual's current location to schedule an appointment at the closest of eight ports of entry on the 2,000-mile southern border that participate in the program.
Customs officers receive information from the person requesting an appointment and can review it in advance of screening and vetting. The Biden administration has opted to parole immigrants into the U.S. by the hundreds of thousands, including those who illegally enter the country.
As of last week, CBP had been accepting 1,250 appointments per day, up from 1,000 per day before Title 42 ended on May 11.
Since public health policy Title 42 ended in mid-May through June 23, CBP reported that more than 49,000 immigrants have obtained appointments and shown up. --->READ MORE HERE

Migrant Asylum Entries Increased by 50 Percent Under Biden’s Phone App:
U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) announced an expansion to the number of daily asylum appointments available to migrants seeking admission through one of several southwest border ports of entry. The increase will raise the daily total of migrant admissions through the application from 1,250 per day to 1,450. According to CBP’s announcement on June 30, the number represents a nearly 50 percent increase from the daily total appointments available from May 12, when CBP officers began processing 1,000 appointments daily.
The application is touted by CBP as a “safe, orderly, and humane” process for migrants to access ports of entry, providing CBP officers with advance information for screening and vetting to determine admissibility on a case-by-case basis. The use of the application for this purpose is facing criticism by some members of Congress who believe the admission of migrants through ports of entry is merely an attempt to hide the crisis at the southwest border from the public.
In a recent interview on Fox News’ Your World with Neil Cavuto, House Committee on Homeland Security Chairman Mark E. Green, MD (R-TN) described the use of the application by Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas as an attempt to mask the numbers. Green told Cavuto, “The numbers aren’t going down. That’s a shell game for Mayorkas”.
Green added, “They had another month of 200,000 plus migrant [encounters]. And what’s happened since Title 42 is he’s using this CBP One app to actually mask the numbers.”
“So, a person comes to the border, they’re telling them to voluntarily return to Mexico, fill out the app, and then come in,” the Tennessee congressman continued. “And they’re immediately released; they’re giving them parole into the United States against the Immigration and Naturalization Act. So those numbers are hidden in another count.” --->READ MORE HERE
