U.S. Border Dilemma Forecast for 2024

In the wake of record migrant apprehensions in December 2023, U.S. immigration policy faces a critical juncture. The surge has exacerbated political tensions, particularly within the Republican Party, ahead of the November elections. The Supreme Court’s decision permitting federal agents to cut Texas’s border barriers further intensifies state-federal standoffs. Concurrently, contentious Congressional negotiations on U.S.-Mexico border policy, influenced by these dynamics, signal potential shifts in immigration management. This situation forms the backdrop for evaluating the likelihood of legislative stalemates, changing migration patterns, and escalating intergovernmental tensions.

Key Judgement 1. It is likely that the US border policy deal will not pass in Congress in the next six months. 

Key Judgement 2.  It is likely that the immigration flows will not decrease in the next six months.  

Key Judgement 3. It is highly likely that tensions between the state of Texas and the U.S. Congress will escalate due to the recent Supreme Court ruling on border wire-cutting along the Rio Grande.
