WASHINGTON D.C. — Proposed legislation would allow the U.S. to continue to expel migrants in a way similar to Title 42, a health measure set to expire May 11, according to Politico. The following is a quote from
Jennie Murray, President and CEO of the National Immigration Forum:
“Congress blocking asylum seekers cannot be our replacement for the administration blocking them. Our current challenges at the border have all happened with Title 42 in place. We need broader solutions that ensure our security while also honoring the human dignity of migrants.
“The United States has a proud history as a place of refuge for people fleeing desperate situations. Americans want to continue that tradition, but this bill would do the opposite.”
