Join ProPublica and The Texas Tribune for a Conversation about President Biden’s Border Policy

Migrants were taken into custody by U.S. Customs and Border Protection a total of 178,622 times in April — a 21-year high, according to new federal statistics. Most were immediately expelled under a pandemic health order. But increasingly convoluted border policy from the Biden administration and unevenly enforced Mexican law means some migrants are granted entrance into the U.S. depending on various factors.

Join ProPublica and The Texas Tribune from 1-2 p.m. Central time May 27 for a conversation with Theresa Cardinal Brown, managing director of immigration and cross-border policy at the Bipartisan Policy Center; Alex Nowrasteh, director of immigration studies at the Cato Institute; Ursela Ojeda, policy adviser at the Women’s Refugee Commission; and Andrew Selee, president of the Migration Policy Institute. ProPublica-Texas Tribune investigative unit reporter Lomi Kriel will moderate.
