Cory Booker (D., N.J.), wouldset a norm that “vulnerable” migrants “may not be detained,” Fox News reported. Vulnerable groups, according to the bill, include migrants who identify as “lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer, or intersex,” don’t speak English, or have experienced “severe trauma.”

The proposal comes as illegal immigration surges on the southern border. Border Patrol agents reported 162,317 migrant encounters in March, an increase of 32,000 migrants from February. Eleven of the migrants had names matching ones on the terror watch list, the Washington Times reported.”
