Venezuela has blocked flights of migrants deported from the United States and Mexico, undermining one of the few policies the Biden administration had recently embraced to deal with record levels of illegal immigration, according to the Wall Street Journal, citing people familiar with the measures.

The 'almost weekly' flights from the US to Veneuela were halted in late January according to US officials, marking the longest pause in repatriation since the two countries announced a landmark deal to restart deportations in October - after roughly 1,800 Venezuelans were returned home on 15 flights. As the Journal notes, this is but a fraction of the nearly 500,000 Venezuelans detained at the southern US border over the past two years.

In short, the move gets in the way of the Biden administration pretending they've been taking action, and now gives them something to blame.

The flights to Venezuela were intended to send a signal to migrants that they would face significant deportation risks if they crossed the border illegally, potentially easing some of the pressure on President Biden, whose poll ratings are suffering ahead of November’s presidential election because of the immigration issue. A similar measure was effective in curtailing a surge of Haitian migrants aiming to sneak into the U.S. last year. 

Biden administration officials say that the U.S. government has other mechanisms to deport migrants back to Venezuela, including commercial flights. -WSJ
