rappresentante. Debbie Lesko: Biden's immigration, COVID crises – trip to border showed why he shouldn't repeal Title 42

Presidente Biden, tuttavia, has decided to ignore the ongoing border crisis and disregard the health and safety of our hardworking Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agents by considering a repeal of Title 42, which has been an important provision in preventing the spread of COVID-19 and securing our southern border.

Titolo 42 of the Public Health Service Act provides the U.S. Dipartimento di Sicurezza Nazionale, specifically CBP agents on the front lines, with public health authority to immediately expel illegal immigrants entering our nation to prevent the introduction or spread of a communicable disease, ad esempio COVID-19. This allows for the expulsion of illegal immigrants who would otherwise be held in close proximity to each other while awaiting processing.


Titolo 42 has served as a legitimate justification for expelling illegal immigrants attempting to enter our nation.

Lifting this provision not only allows more illegal immigrants into the United States —putting agents and illegal immigrants at a far greater risk of contracting and spreading COVID-19 or its variants—but, it also further overwhelms our immigration system, which is already drowning in a flood of illegal immigrants.

I recently visited the U.S-Mexico border where I saw firsthand the crisis that has unfolded.

Mentre lì, I heard directly from CBP’s Office of Field Operations and Air and Marine Operations, Pattuglia di confine, and Immigration and Customs Enforcement (GHIACCIO) agents who raised serious concerns that undoing Title 42 would create a catastrophe at the border.

I immediately urged the Biden administration to uphold Title 42 protections and prevent yet another misguided policy from devastating our southern border and border communities.

Undoing Title 42 would set Arizona and our nation back in the fight to overcome COVID-19 and would undermine any efforts to secure the border.
