The Biden administration is considering changes to the asylum process and humanitarian parole for illegal immigrants at the southern U.S. border, as GOP lawmakers are leveraging funding against them.

This comes amid record numbers of illegal crossings and impeachment proceedings against Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas.

The administration is open to negotiations with Republicans, who are pushing for border security changes in exchange for approval of the president’s year-end funding request. (Trending: Biden Shamefully Removes God From National Address)

“We’re not going to try to secure other countries and not secure ours,” Republican Sen. James Lankford said.

“We’re at a point for three years we’ve been saying, ‘When are we going to secure the country? When are we going to do this?’ And every year it’s gotten worse.”

“The real sticking point is asylum is not enough if we don’t get progress on parole,” Republican Sen. Thom Tillis stated.

There are discussions to raise the threshold for asylum claims and restrict the use of humanitarian parole.

“I said, ‘We’re willing to compromise, but we need a bipartisan bill on border,’” Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer said.

“You can’t pull it so far, as they’ve been trying to do.”

The administration is seeking improvements at the border as the number of illegal crossings continues to rise.
