On July 23, the Department of Homeland Security expanded the scope of its expedited removal designation pursuant to its authority under the Immigration and Nationality Act. Previously, for undocumented migrants who crossed a land border into the U.S., the designation could only be applied if they were found within 100 miles of the border and could not prove a 14-day continuous presence in the U.S. The expanded designation can apply to undocumented individuals throughout the U.S. who cannot prove a two-year continuous presence in the U.S.
