The Biden administration is on the verge of reversing a measure called Title 42. It was implemented by the Trump administration early in the pandemic to slow the spread of COVID from illegal border crossers.
If they follow through with the change, most people expect the surge at the border to become worse than ever.
Democrats who are running in swing states in 2022 are extremely worried about the impact this will have on their campaigns.

Battleground State Democrats Panic over Biden Ending Trump-Era Border Controls: ‘A Frightening Decision’
House and Senate Democrats, representing battleground and swing states, are panicking over President Joe Biden’s “frightening decision” to end the Title 42 border control — a move expected to spur the largest wave of illegal immigration in American history.
On Friday, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that the Biden administration would end Title 42 — a broad authority that allows federal immigration officials to quickly return border crossers and illegal aliens to their native countries.
As a result, Biden officials admit that anywhere from 500,000 to 540,000 border crossers and illegal aliens are expected to show up at the United States-Mexico border every month. This is the equivalent of a population the size of Atlanta, Georgia or Fresno, California arriving at the border over the course of just 28 to 30 days…
Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Mark Kelly (D-AZ), both of who urged Biden to keep Title 42 in place, said the decision shows the depth to which the White House does not understand the toll illegal immigration has on border communities.
“Today’s decision to announce an end to Title 42 despite not yet having a comprehensive plan ready shows a lack of understanding about the crisis at our border,” Sinema said.
This is more than a political problem for vulnerable Democrats.
The border has been under assault since the day Joe Biden took office.
The situation is not sustainable.
