The US reported nearly 1 million migrants detained at the border in six months

In fiscal years 2022 and 2023, the U.S. Border Patrol reported more than 2 million apprehensions of migrants crossing the southern border illegally, an all-time high. In May 2023, the country ceased to operate a special regime on deportation, introduced under former President Donald Trump due to the coronavirus pandemic, under the so-called Article 42. According to it, migrants could be denied asylum due to the threat of the spread of COVID-19. The administration of current leader Joe Biden introduced new requirements, such as deportation of those who do not qualify for asylum, but this has not stopped the flow of migrants.
