Tens of thousands of migrants each month are being allowed to work in the United States and forego wait time, due to President Joe Biden’s CBP One app. The phone application allows migrants to immediately apply for work authorization and bypass required wait time, according to the Department of Homeland Security.

According to DHS when migrants enter through the phone app, the employment authorization document allows them to legally work in the U.S.

If migrants don’t utilize CBP One and enter the country illegally with an asylum claim, they must wait 150 days to apply for a work permit and an additional 30 days to receive one, a Biden administration official recently told the Daily Caller News Foundation. Roughly 16% of working-age migrants who entered the country using CBP One have applied for work authorization, according to the White House.

Federal data shows between January and July, over 188,500 migrants scheduled CBP One entry appointments at several ports along the southern border.

Former Acting Deputy Chief of Staff at the Department of Homeland Security during the Trump administration Lora Ries told the Daily Caller that the app only attracts more illegal immigration. With the CBP One program in place, illegal immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border has continued to surge, jumping from roughly 99,000 encounters in June to more than 132,000 in July, followed by more than 177,000 in August.

“That’s all that these aliens want is work authorization. They don’t care about getting asylum protection. They don’t care about getting some other document. I will say illegal aliens want five things: they want to enter the U.S., they want to stay here, they want to work here, they want to send money home and they want to bring family here. And this administration is letting them enter, letting them stay and letting them work,” said Ries, who now serves as the director of the Border Security and Immigration Center at The Heritage Foundation.

A new policy by the U.S. Immigration Authority asks Israelis if they were involved in war crimes

According to attorney Liam Schwartz, head of the Labor and Corporate Immigration Department at the Tel Aviv-based law firm of Goldfarb, Seligman, a new policy by the U.S. Immigration Authority aimed at Israelis seeks detailed explanations about military service, potentially to identify involvement in war crimes or other serious offenses.

“The U.S. Immigration Authority’s new policy is extremely worrisome,” Schwartz said. “Its impact on Israelis could be broad, affecting areas such as relocation for work, academic studies, and family reunification.”

This policy extends beyond green card applications. Israelis applying for visas at U.S. embassies outside Israel may also face rigorous questioning. Y Net News discusses the case of Yuval, a senior manager at a high-tech company in Silicon Valley, who recently received a surprising letter from the U.S. Immigration Authority regarding his green card application. The letter requested detailed information about his service in the Israel Defense Forces (IDF) from 2005 to 2008, raising concerns about a potential shift in U.S. immigration policy towards Israeli applicants.

The letter demanded an affidavit under oath addressing several specific questions about Yuval’s military service. These included queries about his participation in combat, command roles, guarding detainees, and the use of weapons or explosives. Yuval must provide satisfactory answers within 87 days to avoid deportation.

Yuval expressed shock at the detailed nature of the questions, noting that he had previously provided basic information about his military service when applying for his work visa two years ago. “I feel as if questions were copied from the Office of the Chief Prosecutor of the International Criminal Court in The Hague,” he remarked.

While cooperation with U.S. authorities regarding military service is necessary for visa or green card applications, Schwartz highlighted a conflict with Israeli laws on military confidentiality. He suggested that in some cases, it might be more practical for applicants to consider leaving the U.S.
