By BBN Staff: The migrant situation at the United States border continues to be a major issue that the Joe Biden administration is facing, prompting  Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to appeal to migrants “Please don’t come.”

Mayorkas, appearing on CBS This Morning, said that the administration is in the process of rebuilding and expanding the immigration systems that were dismantled by the previous administration under the leadership of Donald Trump, but that the process will take some months to complete.

“It’s ‘do not come’ because it is not safe to take the journey, it’s is not safe in a time of pandemic to arrive at the border, families and single adults are being expelled, let us rebuild if I may a safe, orderly way for you to apply for humanitarian relief, under the laws of our country,” Mayorkas said.

He also noted that children are not being turned away, and instead are kept at border patrol stations until they can be handed over to their parents, legal guardians, or other responsible relatives who are in the United States.

“We’ve taken a different decision than the previous administration, we do not expel young children back into the environment of poverty and violence from which they are fleeing,” Mayorkas said.

CBS This Morning noted that the US is preparing for the largest influx of migrants in the past twenty years, with as many as 500 unaccompanied children a day arriving at the southern border with Mexico.
