Pandemic-related restrictions on migrants seeking asylum on the southern border must continue, a judge ruled Friday in an order blocking the Biden administration’s plan to lift them early next week.
The Biden administration should honor its commitment to immediately end Title 42 restrictions, which were imposed by former President Donald Trump to deny asylum seekers their basic, protected rights. It would be a mistake for Democrats to shy away from dismantling this cruel plank of Trump’s anti-immigrant agenda. By the end of 2019, the Trump […]
As predictable as Donald Trump’s divisive rhetoric, the decades-old language of anti-Latino hate has resurfaced like a festering boil in the wake of Biden’s plans to end Title 42 restrictions on immigration.

President Joe Biden said Thursday the U.S. would immediately begin turning away Cubans, Haitians, and Nicaraguans who cross the border from Mexico illegally.

Critics of the migrants trying to cross the border say that there are legal avenues and procedures to follow. However, many asylum seekers are never screened and are sent back to Mexico under Title 42, the Trump-era policy that denies entry to immigrants with the pretense of protecting public health.
