Contributing sentiments towards policy:

58% : Troy Miller, the acting commissioner of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP), told lawmakers last week that he is preparing for the possibility that up to 10,000 migrants per day could attempt to enter the United States illegally -- nearly double the daily average in March.
58% : CBP has capacity to detain 6,000 migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border and plans to add space for 2,500 more, Miller said, adding that the agency has stepped up its ability to quickly transport migrants away from the border.
48% : The Biden plans aim to address a likely increase in unauthorized immigration after COVID border restrictions that have been in place since 2020 are set to end on May 11, barring any last-minute legal or congressional intervention.
48% : Miller noted that an estimated 660,000 migrants are currently in Mexico, citing United Nations figures.
46% : Biden, a Democrat who announced his 2024 reelection campaign this week, has struggled with record numbers of migrants caught crossing the U.S.-Mexico border and gradually toughened his approach to enforcement.
31% : The Biden administration's latest border plan focuses on a soon-to-be-finalized regulation that would block most migrants crossing the border illegally from claiming asylum if they passed through another country without seeking refuge or failed to use lawful pathways to the United States.
