An increasing number of migrants have arrived at the southern border of the United States recently. President Joe Biden is now asking migrants to stay home.
“Do not come. Do not leave your hometown or your local community,” Biden asked migrants in an interview with ABC News on Tuesday.
Biden has shelved parts of the measures that Donald Trump introduced to prevent immigration to the US.
But the president rejected Republicans’ accusations that this has led to an increase in the number of migrants. Biden points out that similar migration waves were experienced in 2019 and 2020.
Around 100,000 people were arrested by the US Customs and Border Protection (CBP) in February when they tried to reach the United States from Mexico. Almost 9,500 were unaccompanied minors.
