Democrats Put Increased Pressure On Biden Not To Reverse Title 42 Border Measure

A growing number of Democrats are asking Biden not to end Title 42, a measure put in place by the Trump administration during the pandemic to slow the spread of COVID by illegal border crossers.

Most people agree that ending this measure will increase border crossers by a massive margin.

These Democrats aren’t worried about protecting the border, they’re trying to protect their political careers.

Democrats pressure Biden to back off Title 42 decision

Democrats on Capitol Hill, fearing a deluge of migrants at the southern border this summer, are pressuring President Biden to back off his decision to lift the Trump-era Title 42 order next month.

Democrats in tough races publicly criticized Biden’s decision earlier this month, but now the pushback is growing to include the president’s moderate allies such as Sen. Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Senate Homeland Security and Governmental Affairs Committee Chairman Gary Peters (D-Mich.).

Democratic aides on Monday suggested the administration should postpone the date for lifting the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention order, which is now set for May 23, to give themselves more time to craft a plan to deal with an expected surge in migration.

“I don’t know what’s going to happen, but there’s a lot of lobbying,” said a senior Senate Democratic aide, who said the easiest solution would be to delay lifting the order until the fall or after the election.

“Extend it and move on,” the source said, acknowledging that Republicans are winning the messaging war over Biden’s border policy right how. “It shows how much the right drives the discourse.”

Ending Title 42 is a terrible idea.

Watch Biden go ahead with this anyway.
