The administration wants a change in who comes to the border, which includes many Venezuelans, Cubans and Nicaraguans.

Officials have credited the program with reducing the number of Venezuelans crossing the US-Mexico border from more than 1,000 a day on average to only about 100 a day right now.

More than 5,900 have already arrived in the United States, the spokesperson said.
