Acting Homeland Security Secretary David Pekoske announced a 100-day pause on some deportations late Wednesday, moving to carry out one of President Biden’s most prominent campaign promises.
“The pause will allow DHS to ensure that its resources are dedicated to responding to the most pressing challenges that the United States faces, including immediate operational challenges at the southwest border in the midst of the most serious global public health crisis in a century,” Mr. Pekoske said in a statement.

Security experts have warned that the pause could exacerbate the border situation by inviting a new surge of migrants eager to take advantage of more lax enforcement if they can get to the interior of the U.S.
The pause followed an earlier directive Wednesday to halt the Remain-in-Mexico policy that had helped solve the last migrant surge in 2019.
