New bollard-style U.S.-Mexico border fencing meets vehicle barriers in Santa Teresa, N.M., March 5, 2019. (Lucy Nicholson/Reuters) Migrants could be seen walking through a gap in the U.S.-Mexico border fence as Arizona governor Doug Ducey held a press conference on Tuesday to call out the Biden administration’s failure to control the flow of illegal immigrants. Ducey held the press conference at a gap in the fence in the Yuma border sector with local officials to address efforts to stem illegal immigration at the southern border. A reporter for a local NBC affiliate filmed the group of “almost a dozen” migrants entering while Yuma mayor Douglas Nicholls spoke to reporters.

The Biden administration “upended sensible, effective policies like the Migrant Protection Protocols, just to reinstate them months later only because a court ordered them to.” Ducey spoke several days after the administration announced it would reimplement the Trump-era MPP, known as the “Remain in Mexico” policy, which requires asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico before immigration court hearings in the U.S. The administration had attempted to rescind the policy but was forced to restart the program by order of a federal judge. Border Patrol agents encountered 164,303 migrants at the southern border in October, after a total of 1,734,686 encounters for the entire 2020-2021 fiscal year, according to U.S. Customs and Border Protection data.

The bill, known as Intro 1867, is expected to pass a City Council vote on Thursday, with a veto-proof majority of at least 35 out of 51 council members signing on as cosponsors. Under the law, green-card holders, residents with work permits, and DACA recipients would be able to cast ballots in municipal races beginning in 2023, as long as they lived in New York City for at least 30 days prior to an … Send a tip to the news team at NR.
