(AP) — The Biden administration on Thursday announced new rules that require authorities to only pursue migrants who recently crossed into the country without permission or are deemed to pose a threat to public safety.

The new guidelines replace interim rules issued in February and blocked by a federal judge in August as part of a lawsuit brought by Texas and Louisiana.

The announcement comes as President Joe Biden faces bipartisan criticism over his approach to immigration following his administration’s handling of a large camp of mostly Haitian immigrants at the southern U.S. border.
