By the decree enforcing the institution of the papacy in violation of the law of God, our nation will disconnect herself fully from righteousness. When Protestantism shall stretch her hand across the gulf to grasp the hand of the Roman power, when she shall reach over the abyss to clasp hands with spiritualism, when, under the influence of this threefold union, our country shall repudiate every principle of its Constitution as a Protestant and republican government, and shall make provision for the propagation of papal falsehoods and delusions, then we may know that the time has come for the marvelous working of Satan and that the end is near. {5T 451.1}

A Year Ago, 40 Migrants Died in a Fire at a Mexican Detention Facility. Who Should Be Blamed?

Long before the Juárez detention center erupted in flames, U.S. and Mexico leaders were aware of the danger. A ProPublica-Texas Tribune examination shows that landmark shifts in U.S. border policies helped sow the seeds of a tragedy.

The Biden administration is eyeing a new point guard on border issues, with plans to bring in the Department of Homeland Security's Blas Nuñez-Neto, Axios' Stef W. Kight and Alex Thompson have learned.

  • Why it matters: A lack of ownership among senior White House officials has hampered President Biden's ability to respond to the border, which has become one of his most vulnerable election issues.

Nuñez-Neto has been closely involved with border issues as assistant secretary for border and immigration policy at DHS.

GOP's age split
By
 
mail?url=https%3A%2F%2Fdatawrapper.dwcdn
Data: The Harris Poll; Chart: Axios Visuals

Young Republicans are notably more moderate on immigration than the elders in their party, according to an Axios Vibes survey by The Harris Poll.

Why it matters: The Trump-led GOP has embraced a hardline stance on immigration, but younger party members are more skeptical of the GOP's political narratives on the subject.

  • Gen Z Republicans are more likely to support more legal immigration pathways.
  • They're more likely to question negative narratives about immigrants than older generations, the survey found.
  • They're less likely than Boomer and Gen X Republicans to back some of Trump's most aggressive plans to crack down on illegal immigration.

Zoom in: Even where a significant majority of Republicans in Gen Z agree with those in Generation X and the Boomer Generation, a closer look often reveals they agree less emphatically.

  • Only 33% of Gen Z Republicans "strongly" agreed that illegal immigration is unfair to those who come illegally, compared to 70% in older generations.
  • Just 28% of Gen Z felt strongly that immigrants' character is worse today than 50 years ago, about half of the older age group.

The other side: Gen Z Republicans are still more concerned about immigration overall than their peers of other political identities.

  • 63% said illegal immigration is a problem for U.S. communities, compared to 39% of Gen Z Democrats.
  • 61% of Gen Z Republicans believe illegal immigration is linked to crime spikes, compared to 45% of Gen Z Democrats.

🗳️ Scoop: Biden hits Trump on border
mail?url=https%3A%2F%2Fimages.axios.com%
Screenshot: Biden campaign ad

The Biden campaign is launching a digital ad to remind Latino voters of President Trump's family separation policy at the border — officially announced six years ago today — which resulted in 3,000+ kids being taken from their parents.

  • Why it matters: The Biden campaign is upping its effort to puncture what they see as nostalgia for Trump's four years in office.

Zoom in: The ad, "Ripped Apart," interlaces video of Trump making anti-immigrant comments with the cries of children separated from their parents.

The other side: Trump spokesperson Karoline Leavitt said he "will restore his effective immigration policies ... and marshal every federal and state power necessary to institute the largest deportation operation of illegal criminals, drug dealers, and human traffickers in American history."

Biden prepares to unveil new asylum change

Biden administration officials are readying to publish a new rule to more rapidly reject some migrants from asylum soon after crossing the border, Axios has learned.

Dems' border offensive

Democrats are preparing to flip the tables on the GOP on immigration, with an aggressive border rule paired with a political push in D.C.

Zoom in: "Democrats are going to make it clear which party is working to fix our broken border, and which party is conspiring to make it worse." Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) said this afternoon.

  • Schumer is seriously considering bringing the failed bipartisan border deal back to the floor for a vote later this month, Axios' Stef Kight scooped this afternoon.
  • Meanwhile, Biden administration officials are getting ready to publish a new rule to more rapidly reject some migrants from asylum soon after crossing the border, Stef has learned.

The bottom line: This is a big change for Democrats, who have been hesitant for years to directly deal with the border issue.

Biden to announce drastic border action on Tuesday

President Biden is expected to announce a sweeping executive action intended to crack down on illegal border crossings.

Biden's border gambit

President Biden will issue an executive order today that allows him to dramatically limit asylum claims at the Southwest border — granting himself the power that congressional Republicans twice have denied him, Axios' Hans Nichols and Stef W. Kight write.

  • Why it matters: Five months before the election, Biden wants to neutralize what could be his biggest political vulnerability against former President Trump — immigration.

The order will allow border officials to rapidly turn back immigrants — without giving them a chance at asylum — when illegal border crossings reach an average of 2,500 a day.

  • There have been an average of 3,700 illegal crossings a day over the last three weeks, according to internal stats obtained by Axios. So the order could go into effect immediately.
  • Crossings between legal ports of entry have plummeted from December's record high of 250,000 encounters and have remained relatively stable ever since.

🔎 Between the lines: Biden's timing is guided by both real-world and political factors.

  1. Crossings tend to rise in the summer months, just when voter attention will be increasing.
  2. Biden debates Trump on CNN on June 27. The ex-president is relishing the chance to skewer Biden's border policies face-to-face.
  3. The order comes less than two weeks after a move by Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer to put Republicans in a position to kill a bipartisan border deal on the Senate floor for a second time.
  4. It's two days after elections in Mexico. Claudia Sheinbaum, Mexico's president-elect, has indicated she'll continue her predecessor's policy of working with U.S. authorities.

🔭 Zoom out: Biden is acknowledging a 2024 political reality.

Biden is rooting his action in the same section of the federal code that Trump used for his border restrictions and his temporary "Muslim ban."

  • Officials bristle at those comparisons and note Biden's approach will include some humanitarian exemptions. Still, it's a remarkable shift in American politics.

Biden's border cutoff

President Biden's new executive order on illegal migration marks the administration's most aggressive border action yet, Axios' Stef W. Kight reports.

  • Under the order, which takes effect immediately, migrants who illegally cross the U.S.-Mexico border will largely be blocked from asylum and could face fast-tracked deportation, Biden officials say.
  • Removal to Mexico or a migrant's home country could happen in a matter of hours.

🔎 Between the lines: The U.S. will depend on Mexico to take in migrants rejected under the order. But officials didn't indicate that Mexico will expand its existing cooperation.

  • Congress hasn't provided new funds to help carry out such a shift in process and policy.
  • And the administration is preparing for fast legal challenges.

Reality check: Border numbers have fallen drastically from the record high in December, and they've held relatively steady for most of this year.

  • Still, Biden is announcing these measures with "Congress failing to act and in the face of the summer months when we typically see encounters increase," a senior official told reporters.

Go deeper.

Biden rolls out asylum restrictions, months in the making, to help ‘gain control’ of the border

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Joe Biden on Tuesday unveiled plans to enact immediate significant restrictions on migrants seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border as the White House tries to neutralize immigration as a political liability ahead of the November elections.

President Joe Biden on Tuesday announced new immigration restrictions that will allow the administration to ban asylum seekers who cross the US-Mexico border illegally. The executive action marks the administration's most dramatic move on the southern border yet as Biden tries to gain the upper hand on immigration just weeks from the first presidential debate — by using the same authority former President Donald Trump tried to use in office. The measure could be turned on and off and would be lifted when there's a daily average of fewer than 1,500 encounters between ports of entry, officials said. Several progressives blasted the move and the ACLU said it intends to file a lawsuit to stop the action from going into effect.

N.Y. Times columnist Nick Kristof endorses President Biden's Trump-like decision to curb access to asylum:

"Are we, the people of an immigrant nation, pulling up the ladder after we have boarded? Yes, to some degree. But the reality is that we can't absorb everyone who wants in, and it's better that the ladder be raised in an orderly way by reasonable people."

Kristof writes: "Given the choices, I trust Biden more than Trump to adopt tougher policies that are still" humane.

Immigration

 

President Joe Biden is considering a major move to provide legal status for long-term undocumented immigrants who are married to American citizens, sources tell CNN. Though final details have not been decided, officials are reviewing an existing legal authority that would shield select undocumented immigrants from deportation and allow them to work legally in the country as they seek citizenship. This comes days after President Biden announced an executive action that bars migrants crossing the border illegally from seeking asylum — with some limited exceptions — if the number of encountered by border agents exceeds a daily average of 2,500. The average daily illegal crossings have for years surpassed that threshold, peaking at over 8,000 in December, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

Breaking: Biden's border concession

Half a million undocumented immigrants married to U.S. citizens may get an easier path to citizenship under a new program announced by President Biden this morning, Axios' Astrid Galván writes.

  • Why it matters: Biden has been in hot water with immigrant advocates after restricting asylum access at the border earlier this month.

Obtaining legal status after marrying a citizen is a long and cumbersome process that requires people who entered the U.S. without authorization to move to their home country for at least 10 years.

  • That means many immigrants don't apply for legal permanent residence — a key requirement to eventually become a citizen — and live in limbo.

Zoom in: Under the proposed rule, roughly 500,000 immigrants in the country without authorization — and 50,000 people under 21 whose parent is married to a citizen — will be able to apply for a green card without leaving the country.

  • They'll also be eligible for a three-year work permit.
