In immigration news, the Los Angeles Times reports the Biden administration is planning to expand a program that allows some Central American children to reunite with their parents living in the U.S. Under the program, first enacted by the Obama administration, parents from Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras who have legal residency or temporary protected status in the U.S. can apply for their children to be allowed into the country. This comes as the Biden administration continues to detain thousands of unaccompanied refugee children. Last week during a visit to Guatemala, Vice President Kamala Harris warned asylum seekers not to come to the U.S.
