  • Right.

  • First story this Thursday takes us to the border between the United States and Mexico.

  • Some call the situation there a challenge for the US.

  • Some call it a crisis.

  • What it's about is a dramatic increase in the number of migrants who want to cross the border into the United States and an increase in the number who have been arrested for crossing that border illegally.

  • This has put a strain on U.

  • S officials trying to guard the border and the facilities America has for caring for migrants.

  • Part of the reason more people from various countries have been coming to the border is because they believe the Biden administration will make it easier for them to enter the U.

  • S than the Trump administration did.

  • Last year, President Donald Trump's government allowed US border officials to turn away migrants arrested at the border out of concerns they might further spread coronavirus in America.

  • The law is still in effect, but President Joe Biden's government changed it so that it wouldn't apply to Children caught at the border they are now allowed to stay in the U.

  • S.

  • While their cases for immigration are reviewed.

  • And though U.

  • S officials say most of the people arrested at the border are single adults, they have seen an increase in the percentage of families and Children trying to cross.

  • There is now a record number of kids being held in U.

  • S Border Patrol facilities, and they weren't designed for Children.

  • Many of the migrants home countries have been hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, and that same pandemic has limited the number of U.

  • S border officials who can interact with and process the migrants.

  • So all of this has made the situation more difficult and increased pressure on the Biden administration to determine what to do next.

  • Sandra Caballero says she has spent a year sitting on the border's edge with her husband and three Children.

  • She says they left the endless crisis of violence in Honduras to seek asylum.

  • Sandra tells us she hopes President Biden will open the door to the border because we need a better future for our Children.

  • The increasing surge of migrants on the southern border is reaching emergency levels for the Biden administration U.

  • S authorities have arrested and encountered more than 100,000 migrants in the four weeks before March 3rd the highest levels for that same time period in at least five years.

  • And new data reviewed by CNN shows there are more than 3400 unaccompanied Children in the custody of Customs and Border Protection.

  • Federal immigration officials are scrambling to make room.

  • We're here in the town of Donna, Texas, on the Mexico border, and CBP has just opened up this massive tent facility.

  • This temporary processing site for migrants was opened just over a month ago, a Homeland Security official told CNN The facility is significantly overcrowded, mostly with Children.

  • Republicans and some Democrats say the Biden administration isn't moving fast enough to keep the migration crisis under control.

  • They are completely unprepared for what is going on the border now, and they're going to be even more unprepared for what will be happening in the coming months.

  • The Biden administration says the majority of migrants are being turned away at the border and refused to describe the situation as a crisis.

  • Look, I don't think we need to sit here and put new labels on what we have already conveyed is challenging what we have conveyed as a top priority for the president.

  • But many more families are being allowed to wait in the U.

  • S.

  • For their immigration court dates.

  • We met Jose at a church shelter.

  • We were asked to protect his identity, he says.

  • Desperation and fear is driving them to the border.

  • He left Honduras with his son three months ago.

  • You Han solo, Did you see a lot of Children traveling by themselves?

  • Jose tells us he saw many Children along the way, begging or cleaning windows for money.

  • Critics of the Biden administration say that the president is not acting fast enough to get the migration situation under control on the U.

  • S.

  • Southern border President Biden and his team insists that what they're trying to do is develop a much more humanitarian approach to immigration here in this country.

  • Ed Lavandera, CNN Dallas It was exactly a year ago today that the World Health Organization, part of the United Nations, declared that the coronavirus outbreak was a pandemic, meaning it had spread worldwide.

  • The W H O had labelled the disease of public health emergency last January, but it had been criticized for not moving fast enough to sound the alarm about Covid.

  • 19 governments around the world have been grappling with how to respond to the disease.

  • Their challenge has been twofold.

  • To limit the diseases impact on their people's health but also to limit its impact on their economies.

  • The United States Congress has authorized several trillion dollars in spending to try to ease the economic problems related to coronavirus.

  • Former President Donald Trump signed multiple bills last year.

  • President Joe Biden plans to sign a $1.9 trillion bill tomorrow after making a primetime address tonight.

  • It'll be his first speech to the nation since he was inaugurated.

  • The latest stimulus bill passed in the Senate last Saturday, and the House voted 222 211 to pass it on Wednesday.

  • No Republicans in either chamber voted in favor of the legislation.

  • Some criticized it as being too partisan, focusing too much on what Democrats wanted and spending too much on programs that aren't related to the pandemic.

  • One House Democrats also voted against the plan, but every other Democrat in the House and Senate voted for it, some saying it was needed to strengthen the economy, save jobs and help people who need the money.

  • Officials estimate that more than 90% of U.

  • S households will receive direct payments from the package.

  • It will provide additional benefits to people who've lost their jobs, more money for public schools, more assistance for small businesses hurt by the pandemic, additional funding for vaccines and hundreds of billions for state and local governments.

  • But a lot of this isn't spent immediately.

  • Roughly a trillion from last year's stimulus plans still hasn't been paid out.

  • Mm hmm.
