Justice Department investigating an alleged 'secret lobbying scheme' to obtain a presidential pardon
By Charles Davis

Mayorkas, a Cuban-American and former Obama administration official, would be the first Latino to lead DHS, the department responsible for enforcing US immigration policies. At least 10,000 Cuban asylum-seekers remain stranded at the US-Mexico border waiting for their hearings to proceed, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse from Syracuse University. For most of them, ongoing pandemic restrictions mean they don't have an exact date for their hearings. Biden is set to take office on January 20. Until then, the Cuban community stuck at the border will have to keep waiting and keep hoping for change.
