Over 3,000 Ukrainians Crossed US-Mexico Border

International desk
US border patrol encountered 3,274 Ukrainian residents at the US-Mexico border in March - a twelvefold jump since the month before, the US Customs and Border Patrol said on Monday, April 17th.

The majority - around 62% - traveled with a relative.

The surge of Ukrainian migrants comes amid an overall increase in attempted crossings along with the United States' southern guests.

And an even more dramatic uptick is expected after the Biden organization overturned a pandemic-era policy that allowed migrants to be promptly ousted from the country.

On the same day, the Biden administration said it would expand eligibility for a program that allows Ukrainians who have been living in the US without documentation to temporarily stay and work. Under the new rules, any Ukrainian who has been in the US since 11 April or earlier may apply.
