Date AnnouncedOct. 30, 2020
The DHS Office of Inspector General released a report confirming that CBP took steps to limit the processing of asylum-seekers at ports of entry, including instructing seven ports of entry to stop processing virtually all undocumented migrants (known as "metering" or "queue management"). The OIG found this action contravened the long-standing CBP practice of processing all migrants at "Class A" ports of entry. OIG made three recommendations, but CBP refused to concur with one.
