Opposition groups blame the Biden administration
The number of undocumented migrants apprehended at the US borders has grown exponentially in recent weeks, mainly since the beginning of February 2021, after President Joe Biden took office on January 20.
Therefore, the Biden administration is now facing a colossal controversy regarding the way in which it is handling the surge of immigrants at the borders, especially when it comes to unaccompanied minors, and its pending immigration proposals, which are practically on hold due to the increase in illegal border crossings.
Naturally, and unsurprisingly, opposition groups are seizing the opportunity to dismiss President Biden’s changes on the immigration sector, including the reversal or suspension of several restrictive immigration policies implemented by his predecessor, former President Donald Trump.
To give a couple of specific examples, the Biden administration:
- Halted the construction of Trump’s border wall that separates Mexico from the US, which was intended to curb irregular immigration.
- Rescinded the MPP (Migrant Protection Protocol) or “Remain in Mexico” policy, which forced thousands of asylum seekers to wait in dangerous territories in Mexico until they received a response to their immigration cases.
With the surge of illegal border crossings, opposition groups and several members of Congress are promulgating their anti-immigration message and blaming the Biden administration for the current border situation, although there are many other factors that also force thousands of Central American citizens to migrate to the US in search of better opportunities.

Experts state that there are other factors influencing massive irregular immigration
Although the message that is being spread in the national news media outlet is that the Biden administration is responsible for the increase in irregular immigration, which might be the case to some extent, there are dozens of other influencing factors that force thousands of people to seek international protection.
In fact, according to the opinion of experts on the subject, circumstances in several Central American countries are forcing local citizens to migrate to protect their loved ones and build a promising future. For instance:
- The economic crisis brought by the global Coronavirus pandemic, which affected some territories more than others, including most, if not all, Central American countries.
- Extreme weather conditions or natural disasters that left thousands of families affected in Central America.
- Substantial increase in the local crime and violence rate due to the economic instability of certain Central American countries.
Therefore, one could conclude that there are factors that increase irregular immigration, which have nothing to do with the Biden administration or any other government, but are directly related to local circumstances and conditions.
