Recently, North Dakota joined 17 other states in opposing Joe Biden’s open-border policies, which have injured the country and American citizens.
The states filed a lawsuit against the Biden Administration in response to its peculiar new asylum policy, which would allow certain non-citizens who cross U.S. borders to remain in the country under the “Circumvention of Lawful Pathways” rule.
This laughable attempt to appear serious about the frontier comes three years into Biden’s presidency, after millions of people have been granted unrestricted access to the country.
The new immigration rule of the leftist administration was released on May 11, 2023, by 63-year-old Democrat Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Nicholas Mayorkas, a former Cuban refugee who seems hell-bent on allowing the entire third world into the United States without any travel restrictions or usurpations of our nation.
According to the fact summary on his utopian aspirations for America, Mayorkas enacted certain regulations. Then, they declared that anyone who is a “unaccompanied minor” is exempt, making it relatively easy for men of military age to claim they are minors and circumvent the immigration rule.
Remember the True Voice of America Ben Bergquam frequently reports that illegal immigrants discard their identification documents at the border so that we know nothing about the individuals who are granted unfettered access to the United States.
Fact Sheet: Circumvention of Lawful Pathways Final Rule
As part of the Biden-Harris Administration’s work to prepare for the end of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s Title 42 public health Order, which will expire after May 11, 2023, and to return to processing all noncitizens under Title 8, immigration authorities, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) and the Department of Justice have issued a final rule to incentivize the use of lawful pathways.
The final rule is intended to address the current and anticipated migration surge throughout the hemisphere and further discourage irregular migration by: encouraging migrants to use lawful, safe, and orderly processes for entering the United States and other partner nations; imposing conditions on asylum eligibility for those who fail to do so; and supporting the swift return of migrants without valid protection claims.
In addition to this final rule, DHS has taken significant measures to expand safe and orderly entry points for migrants into the United States.
This includes establishing country-specific and other available processes to seek parole for urgent humanitarian reasons or significant public benefit; expanding opportunities to enter for seasonal employment; putting in place a mechanism for migrants to schedule a time and date to arrive at ports of entry in a safe, orderly, and lawful manner via the CBP One mobile app; and expanding refugee processing in the Western Hemisphere.
Under the final rule, noncitizens who cross the southwest land border or adjacent coastal borders without authorization after traveling through another country, and without having (1) availed themselves of an existing lawful process, (2) presented at a port of entry at a pre-scheduled time using the CBP One app, or (3) been denied asylum in a third country through which they traveled, are presumed ineligible for asylum unless they meet certain limited exceptions.

Noncitizens can rebut this presumption based on exceptionally compelling circumstances detailed below. Noncitizens in expedited removal who are subject to and do not rebut the rebuttable presumption would be screened for whether there is a reasonable possibility they will face persecution or torture in the designated country of removal.
