It's an interim step as President Joe Biden continues to mull a broader executive order to crack down on border crossings that may come later this year.

The change under consideration would allow certain migrants who are arriving at the border now to be processed first through the asylum system rather than going to the back of the line. That's according to four people familiar with the proposal who were granted anonymity to speak about an administration policy before it is completed.
