By Todd Bensman and Bryan Griffith on April 19, 2023

In January, the Biden administration rolled out its plan to address the chaos at the Southern border and discourage illegal entries. Under this new plan, would-be illegal crossers could obtain humanitarian admittance permits through the CBP One app before arriving at the border. Todd Bensman, the Center's senior national security fellow, went down to Juarez, Mexico, and found that the system is failing. Migrants are instead abandoning the program and opting to cross illegally anyway.
