Zero tolerance is out. How President Biden is changing immigration enforcement

Thousands of migrants have been showing up at the U.S. Mexico border in recent weeks, hoping that President Biden’s more lenient immigration agenda means they’ll get a chance to cross.

The White House plans to draft new rules for ICE in the coming days, directing them to only arrest and deport immigrants who pose a national security or public safety risk, who’ve served time for serious felonies, or who were caught crossing the border illegally.

Some immigrant families have already been released into the U.S. — a big departure from the Trump administration.
