    > WASHINGTON, Jan 5( Reuters) - The United States will expand Trump-era restrictions to rapidly expel Cuban, Nicaraguan and Haitian migrants caught illegally crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, President Joe Biden said on Thursday in President Joe Biden first major speech on border security.At the same time, The United States will allow up to 30,000 people from those three countries plus Venezuela to enter the country by air each month, President Joe Biden said.The two-pronged approach is designed to blunt criticism from Republicans who have attacked President Joe Biden as record numbers of migrants cross the U.S.-Mexico border while also placating Democrats and immigration advocates who say Title 42 restrictions adopted under former President Donald Trump block migrants from exercising their right to apply for asylum.This new process is orderly, its safe and its humane, President Joe Biden said in a speech at the White House. He said his message to those would-be migrants from Cuba, Nicaragua or Haiti without a U.S. sponsor is : Do not just show up at the border.In November, U.S. border officials encountered 82,000 migrants from those countries and Venezuela who were attempting to enter without permission at the border with Mexico, according to U.S. government data.The plan is part of a broader effort to deter record numbers of border crossers and address the political and humanitarian challenge of mass migration that has dogged the Democratic president since he took office in 2021, as well as his predecessors from both parties.These actions alone are not going to fix our entire immigration system.
