The Biden administration has expanded its policies during the Trump era, allowing illegal immigrants to move away at the border to stop the spread of COVID-19. On Monday, the CDC announced that the so-called Title 42 policy would remain in force until the health threats from non-citizens were eliminated.

This is after the White House has allowed thousands of COVID-positive illegals to be shipped to cities across the country for release after facing a backlash due to the failure to enforce the policy. In addition, a record number of unaccompanied minors were stopped at the border last month.

Critics argue that exemption from this rule for minors exacerbates the problem.

“I know how it is translated by coyotes and cartels, but it was still a step in the right direction,” explained Congressman Michael Burgess (Republican). “I acknowledge the Biden administration for its achievements. It was late, if not two months ago, that it should have happened easily a month ago.”

The title 42 update came after the American Civil Liberties Union reinstated the proceedings on Monday to overturn the order. The Department of Homeland Security said the United States encountered a record number of 210,000 illegal immigrants in July alone, burdening operations, filling facilities beyond normal capacity and creating significant health risks. I submitted it to the court.
