Report: Senate Immigration Deal Allows 35,000 Illegals at Border Every Week

A Senate immigration deal from Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) and James Lankford (R-OK) would allow up to 35,000 illegal aliens to arrive at the United States-Mexico border every week before triggering border controls. 

According to details reported by Adam Shaw at Fox News the deal would allow up to 5,000 illegal aliens to be encountered every day over a 7-day period — or about 150,000 a month — before the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) would have to use border controls to quickly remove illegal aliens. 

The border controls would be similar to those of Title 42, the public health authority used by former President Donald Trump to stem illegal immigration and which President Joe Biden ended. Title 42 allows DHS to quickly apprehend and remove illegal aliens after they arrive at the border.
