Arizona AG urges Biden to reverse Title 42 repeal after border numbers rise again

"It would be unacceptable and dangerous to end this policy, particularly as our country deals with the worst border crisis in 20 years," Brnovich said in a letter to Biden...

"If you rescind this effective policy, illegal crossings and human and drug smuggling will only further explode," he said.

The Trump administration enacted Title 42 public health protections in March 2020 in response to the pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) order allows for the rapid expulsion of migrants, often within minutes and without detention, at the border.

The Biden administration has kept the authority in place, despite pressure and legal action from liberal activists, although it has refused to apply it to unaccompanied children. Additionally, it has not been applying it to some migrant families, due to Mexico’s refusal to take back families with children under seven.
