There were only 646,822 encounters in 2019-20. Cases of people trying to enter the US illegally through the southern border are on the rise. The Biden administration, which is struggling to deal with it, got relief from the Supreme Court on Tuesday.
Biden changed the rules
Biden issued a rule established by his predecessor Donald Trump as a health measure due to the COVID-19 pandemic, but rescinded it in May under pressure from the left wing of his Democratic Party. A group of Republican state officials appealed against it, and the Supreme Court temporarily stayed the revocation until February, halting an expected rush to the border.
The rule, known as Title 42, is not used against Indians and people from outside Latin America. The illegal immigration count is only those people caught by CBP. People who have overstayed their visas are not included in the data. According to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), data for the latest period showed 14,389 Indians suspected of overstaying, up from 13,203 last year.
