Supreme Court rejects Trump administration's request to restart asylum ban. The administration asked the Supreme Court to allow President Donald Trump’s asylum ban to go into effect while the case is argued in lower courts, but in a 5-4 decision, the high court turned down that request. Source 6s.
Trump so wants to get his way that he is even pressing the supreme court to give him the power to do what he wants even when its already being debated in a lower court!

I don't mind helping people get a better life but a lot of people who are up to no good are let across the border or force their way across and that should be stopped.

President Joe Biden plans to raise a Trump-era limit on the number of refugees allowed in the country, reversing course after an outcry from activists. The White House said Friday Biden would raise the cap on refugee resettlements by May 15. Hours earlier the administration faced a backlash from lawmakers and advocates for saying that it planned to keep the limit for the fiscal year at 15,000 — a historically low number set by former President Donald Trump.

The Biden administration said Monday it would allow 62,500 refugees to resettle in the United States this year, reversing course after initially saying it would keep the historically low Trump-era limit of 15,000. But the president said the U.S. Was unlikely to meet the higher goal. Ref. USAToday.
This is to fulfill an election promise but its going to cause many who voted for Trump to be angrier than ever because this is just what they don't want. I also have my reservations about it given we are in the middle of a pandemic.
