Starting at 11:59 tonight, Title 42 will no longer be used to rapidly expel undocumented immigrants from the U-S.
The policy, which is used to combat the spread of communicable diseases, was created in 1944, but in 2020 President Trump began using it to quickly return those illegally crossing the border back to Mexico.
Missouri U-S Senator Josh Hawley says the Biden Administration should continue using Title 42 to repel illegal immigrants:
“We’re going to see the biggest number of people moving across our border ever. What I’m really concerned about is the drugs that will pour into the state of Missouri. Fentanyl is the number one cause of death in the state of Missouri for young people. Number one. Where’s it coming from? Across the border! It’s about to get much, much worse.”
Hawley is also calling for Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas to resign, and if he doesn’t, then he wants Congress to impeach him.
