In Case You Missed it: IIB Talks New Executive Order on Immigration with WIVB-TV Channel 4

By June 5, 2024No Comments

In case you missed it, WIVB-TV Channel 4 recently asked Executive Director Jennifer Rizzo-Choi to discuss the Biden Administration’s new Executive Order on immigration.

The order restricts access to asylum, which would take effect when U.S. Border Patrol apprehensions surpass a weekly average of 2,500 per day. The illegal crossings must go below a weekly average of 1,500 per day for the asylum restrictions to be lifted.

In the interview, Rizzo-Choi touches on local impact, the United States’ international obligations, and how the new action fits into the wider picture of constructive intervention at the border. Watch the feature in its entirety, below.
