Last month, a federal judge heard arguments that the U.S. government is violating the rights of thousands of children seeking asylum through its “Remain in Mexico” program. This was on the heels of the Biden administration’s offering temporary legal status to thousands of immigrant children who were ripped from their parents under Trump’s “zero tolerance” 2018 border policy. Both lawsuits raise questions about the U.S. government’s treatment of immigrant children, who are provided few accommodations in the immigration system and often must represent themselves in deportation proceedings if they cannot hire an attorney.

A growing number of Senate Democrats appear open to making it harder for migrants to seek asylum in order to secure Republican support for aiding Ukraine and Israel.

They are motivated not just by concern for America’s embattled allies. They also believe changes are needed to help a migration crisis that is growing more dire and to potentially dull the political sting of border politics in battleground states before the 2024 elections.

In addition to helping embattled US allies, Senate Dems believe changes could help cool border politics in battleground states ahead of 2024.

Even though Americans support immigration, they have been willing to accept tougher prescriptions for enforcement — and their willingness could test how far hard-liners can go in 2024 with anti-immigrant proposals.

Democrats, like Republicans, have been joining the drumbeat that there is a "crisis" at the border as the numbers of people the Border Patrol says it encounters hit record levels.

Amid all this, former President Donald Trump promises to expand on the hard-line immigration policies of his first term, setting off alarm bells among immigration advocates and even some Republican conservatives.

Trump has escalated his language with declarations that immigrants were “poisoning the blood of our country,” echoing N**i rhetoric; proposing such drastic measures as a massive deportation sweep modeled after the Eisenhower-era “Operation Wetback”; and calling for detention camps that some see as similar to Japanese internment camps.

Trump’s plans include ending the constitutional right to birthright citizenship, invoking a World War II law that allows the president to unilaterally detain and deport people who are not U.S. citizens and cutting off funding for transportation and shelter for people who lack legal status in the country, The Associated Press reported.

Groups warn former President Trump's draconian proposals threaten to affect many Americans, especially Latinos, as laws in places like Arizona have shown.

The number of people seeking asylum at the United States-Canada border or trying to cross into America has increased in the last year, which experts say is part of the larger global migration patterns they're seeing.

U.S. authorities have repeatedly warned of the perils of crossing the northern border, especially in the winter months when temperatures can drop below zero and storms can aggravate the conditions.

“People are moving at a faster rate than in the past, and that is also seen in the north,” Migration Policy Institute analyst Colleen Putzel-Kavanaugh said.

Will Trump and Miller’s anti-immigration agenda also create an opening for the Biden campaign to take the offensive on this issue? CBS News recently reported that the campaign has plans to “bring attention” to Trump’s extreme proposals in hopes of turning potential Latino voters away from the GOP candidate, who is polling well with that demographic. “Donald Trump is offering us a vision of what America would be under his second term in the White House in 2025,” María Carolina Casado, the campaign’s Hispanic media director, told CBS News. “This is not about restoring our immigration system—that he basically destroyed—or border security. This is about hurting our Latino community, hurting our families and family separation.” In a statement, Ammar Moussa, a spokesperson for the Biden campaign, said, “These extreme, racist, cruel policies dreamed up by him and his henchman Stephen Miller are meant to stoke fear and divide us, betting a scared and divided nation is how he wins this election.”

Mass deportations and detention camps are just some of Stephen Miller-backed proposals.

Former President Donald Trump is planning a widespread expansion of his first administration’s hardline immigration policies if he is elected to a second term in 2024, including rounding up undocumented immigrants already in the US and placing them in detention camps to await deportation, a source familiar with the plans confirmed to CNN.

The plans, first reported by The New York Times, would necessitate building large camps to house migrants waiting for deportation and tapping federal and local law enforcement to assist with large-scale arrests of undocumented immigrants across the country.

Migrants said they’re realizing the city is at a breaking point. Not only is there no more space in shelters, they also acknowledge that some residents in Chicago oppose the opening of more shelters for them. Castejon said that despite the dangerous trek to get here — often begging for money and sleeping in the streets to cross several borders — the journey had not been worth it.

His attempts to settle in the city failed. He said he never felt comfortable in a shelter, and that the hot meals, stipends and good jobs he’d heard about from other migrants never materialized. The father didn’t consider that once in the country, the family wouldn’t be granted asylum immediately and or even get a work permit while they wait.

Over the past five months since arriving in Chicago, Andrea Carolina Sevilla’s parents have been unable to enroll her in school even though the reason they left everything behind in their native Venezuela was for her to have access to better education.

Washington — A bipartisan group of senators is working through the weekend to forge a deal on asylum policy changes designed to reduce migrant crossings along the southern border, hoping to make a rare breakthrough on one of Congress' most intractable issues, three congressional officials told CBS News.

Partisan gridlock has doomed numerous other attempts to pass a bipartisan reform of the U.S. immigration system, which has not been updated in any significant way since 1996.

The latest NBC News/Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll of Iowa finds that the top issues animating likely Republican caucusgoers ahead of the first GOP presidential contest on Jan. 15 are the economy, immigration and the deficit.

Eighty-one percent of likely caucusgoers say that the economy and inflation are “extremely important” to them as they evaluate candidates for the upcoming Iowa race, while 80% say immigration and border security are equally important.

That’s followed by 72% of likely caucusgoers who believe government spending and the deficit are extremely important, and 57% who cite the Israel-Hamas war.

The NBC News/Des Moines Register/Mediacom poll also shows a majority picking Trump as best candidate to handle the Israel-Hamas war

SAN DIEGO (AP) — The young Chinese man looked lost and exhausted when Border Patrol agents left him at a transit station. Deng Guangsen, 28, had spent the last two months traveling to San Diego from the southern Chinese province of Guangdong, through seven countries on plane, bus and foot, including traversing Panama’s dangerous Darién Gap jungle.

“I feel nothing,” Deng said in the San Diego parking lot, insisting on using the broken English he learned from “Harry Potter” movies. “I have no brother, no sister. I have nobody.”

Deng is part of a major influx of Chinese migration to the United States on a relatively new and perilous route that has become increasingly popular with the help of social media. Chinese people were the fourth-highest nationality, after Venezuelans, Ecuadorians and Haitians, crossing the Darién Gap during the first nine months of this year, according to Panamanian immigration authorities.

AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas is closer to giving police broad new authority to arrest migrants and order them to leave the U.S. under a bill the state House advanced Thursday, putting Republican Gov. Greg Abbott on the path toward a potential new confrontation with the Biden administration over immigration.

The Texas House in the early morning hours Thursday approved three bills aimed at beefing up border security, one that would appropriate more than $1 billion for additional border barriers, one that would allow police officers to send back migrants to who cross the border illegally and another that would increase penalties for human smugglers.

Democrats fumed when Republicans tried to block more amendments on a bill that would create a new state crime for illegally crossing the border into Texas.

Employers say they're desperate for more workers

There's a labor shortage across much of the U.S., but in this part of the country, it's extreme.

North Dakota's unemployment rate is under 2%. It's the same in South Dakota, while Montana and Wyoming are under 3%. That's pushing businesses across North Dakota to recruit immigrants to fill open jobs in manufacturing, in oil production and in nursing.

The immigrant population is growing fast in states far from the southern border. Employers in North Dakota say the economy needs more workers, but there's still deep ambivalence about immigration.

The initiative is the latest Biden administration attempt to reduce illegal border crossings by offering migrants pathways to enter the U.S. legally.

President Joe Biden says he’s been forced to violate a campaign promise by adding some new construction to Donald Trump’s border wall.

Big city Democratic mayors are angrily demanding more engagement from the Democratic president to help deal with a wave of migrants seeking asylum. One of them – New York Mayor Eric Adams – is in Latin America this week.

Immigration reality is scrambling the normal immigration rhetoric in uncomfortable ways for Democrats, who generally want to appear welcoming but appear to be taking a harder line along with their new positions.

Asylum seekers arriving in Arizona face an intricate process of logistical and bureaucratic hurdles once they are released in the U.S.

After asylum seekers are screened and processed they can be released with notices to check in with Immigration and Customs Enforcement when they arrive at their final destination. If released, they may receive a notice to appear in court in front of an immigration judge at a later date.

Asylum seekers face a complicated system filled with obstacles they must overcome to remain in the United States.

With congressional leaders gridlocked over the nation’s budget and the deadline to pass spending bills fast approaching, the federal government could shut down on October 1. And that can affect some immigration services and visa programs.

If the federal government closes, only essential personnel will be working. All other federal workers will not be allowed to work. So how will that affect immigration in the U.S.?

The main difference between the following agencies is that some are fee-funded and the others rely on congressional appropriations for funding.

Mohammad’s case offers a rare look inside an opaque and overwhelmed immigration court system where hearings are often closed, transcripts are not available to the public and judges are under pressure to move quickly with ample discretion. Amid a major influx of migrants at the border with Mexico, the courts — with a backlog of 2 million cases -– may be the most overwhelmed and least understood link in the system.

The case of an Afghan man who represented himself in U.S. immigration court offers a rare look in that system's proceedings.

As the number of migrants attempting to cross the southern U.S. border rises, Border Patrol agents have begun releasing them on U.S. streets shortly after they cross from Mexico into California and Arizona.

The number of migrants crossing the border in San Diego and the Tucson Sector of Arizona has been steadily rising, with border agents in the Tucson Sector now apprehending as many as 2,000 a day, according to a Border Patrol official.

Near Nogales, Arizona, agents released 100 to 200 migrants per day into the U.S. on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday, according to the official.

There are growing concerns within the Biden administration that New York City is not doing enough to handle its migrant problem, according to several U.S. officials, after a federal team surveyed its migrant operations and found them lacking in key areas.

“It’s not an operationally sound effort,” said a senior DHS official, who added the city has “no exit strategy” to see that migrants find their way out of the shelter system.

The Biden administration is considering forcing some migrant families who enter the country without authorization to remain near the border in Texas while awaiting asylum screening, effectively limiting their ability to travel within the United States, three U.S. officials told The Times.

The proposal, which recalls President Reagan's efforts to limit asylum seekers' movements in the late 1980s, is likely to draw fierce opposition from immigrant rights groups and border-state officials.

One policy document uncovered in the requests says DHS officers, who work on fraud detection and are part of US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS), can use fake accounts to research people “requesting immigration benefits”. The document provides additional detail about a practice USCIS first announced in 2019. Those officers – working for the agency that decides who gets green cards and citizenship – can gather a wide range of data, including physical addresses, relationship information, employment and education affiliations and any social media posts that are “contrary to information submitted by the applicant”, the policy said. Any information collected in these investigations must be “saved” in the individual’s file, even if it’s found to be not “derogatory”, according to the document.

New York City is struggling to manage 100,000 migrants who have shown up during the last year from Venezuela, several African nations, and other failing states that are miserable and dangerous. A COVID-era emergency restriction on border crossings expired in May, opening the door to thousands of additional migrants, mostly coming to the United States over the southwest border.

Thousands of migrants in New York City and elsewhere are doing nothing while they wait for work permits.

En honor al Día de la Igualdad de la Mujer, USCIS reconoce a las mujeres que se unieron a la fuerza laboral federal durante la Segunda Guerra Mundial. Las mujeres de esta imagen de la década de 1940 estaban trabajando con Flex-o-line, un índice de registros de inmigración y naturalización. Con aproximadamente 16 millones de hombres sirviendo en el ejército estadounidense, las mujeres tuvieron nuevas oportunidades profesionales. En el Servicio de Inmigración y Naturalización, un precursor del USCIS, las mujeres en la sede superaban en número a los hombres en proporción de 3 a 1. Algunas mujeres contratadas durante los años de la guerra obtuvieron puestos de supervisión y permanecieron en puestos de autoridad durante décadas después de que terminó la guerra.
