But as criticism mounted, the White House issued a statement saying Biden would set a "final, increased refugee cap" for the remainder of this fiscal year by May 15. "Facing the greatest refugee crisis in our time there is no reason to limit the number to 15,000. Republicans have blamed Biden for the situation at the border, faulting his moves to reverse other Trump-era hardline immigration policies. Democratic U.S. Representative Pramila Jayapal called Biden's decision not to raise Trump's "harmful, xenophobic and racist refugee cap" unconscionable. Refugee groups previously expressed frustration that Biden had delayed issuing the cap for months, which left refugees who were scheduled to travel stranded.

The additional funding would ensure that workforce complaints - “including those related to white supremacy or ideological and non-ideological beliefs” - are investigated quickly, according to a summary of Biden’s budget proposal. Representatives at the border patrol and ICE unions did not immediately respond to requests for comment. Border patrol agents faced scrutiny in 2019 when media outlets exposed racist and misogynistic comments posted to a private Facebook group for current and former agents. Hispanics made up more than half of the Border Patrol workforce in 2016, according to DHS data. In a February report, the Washington-based American Immigration Council said the Border Patrol has been “steeped in institutional racism” since its creation in 1924.

He served as deputy director of the Office of Management and Budget and the National Economic Council and as a senior climate and energy advisor to Obama. Deese’s work at BlackRock prompted an outcry by several environmental and progressive groups who have criticized the appointee for working for corporate interests and said he was not aggressive enough on climate change. “Along with @JoeBiden and @BarackObama Brian Deese shepherded the rescue of the auto industry.
