U.S. Reaches Deal with Mexico to Expel Most Venezuelan Asylum Seekers

HeadlineOct 13, 2022

The Biden administration says it has reached a deal with Mexico that will allow for 24,000 Venezuelan migrants with financial sponsors to enter the U.S., while expelling others who don’t meet the economic criteria or who cross the border outside of a port of entry. The U.S. will expel those migrants to Mexico under the pandemic-era Title 42 program. This comes amid reports the Biden administration is preparing to scale down sanctions on Venezuela to allow the Chevron Corporation to resume pumping oil there.
