President Joe Biden is preparing to end border protection measure Title 42, but not without ordering 1,500 to the border first. Biden is simply preemptively creating a train wreck, but sending workers out ahead of time in order to assist when it goes off the rails.
The dispatch of 1,500 soldiers to the Southern border is “to stem the surge of illegal immigrants that are expected to follow next Thursday’s expiration of Title 42, a pandemic-era public-health measure that allows Border Patrol to immediately expel illegal immigrants” reports National Review.
Following a request by the DHS, the Department of Defense agreed to “provide a temporary increase of an additional 1,500 military personnel, for 90 days, to supplement CBP efforts at the border,” an unnamed US official said in a statement provided to CNN.
“These 1,500 military personnel will fill critical capability gaps, such as ground-based detection and monitoring, data entry, and warehouse support, until CBP can address these needs through contracted support. They will not be doing any law enforcement work.” The Army units sent will only be permitted to use their weapons in self-defense.

Border states and their leadership have pled with the Biden administration, hoping they would not let Title 42 run out in order to give some sort of relief to the overwhelming border crisis. More than two million migrants have been intercepted at the U.S.-Mexico border since Title 42 was enacted by then-President Donald Trump at the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020.
On Monday of this week, Border Patrol Chief Raul Ortiz shared on Twitter that federal agents had apprehended over 22,000 individuals and confiscated more than 800 pounds of methamphetamine in the past three days alone.
Internal docs show Amazon censored books on vaccinations due to pressure from Biden White House
Recently released internal Amazon emails reveal the company caved to pressure from the Biden White House to suppress available vaccine information.
Provided to the House Judiciary Committee, the emails light on the extent of the Biden White House’s influence over the retail giant regarding vaccine-related content. The emails disclose a concerning narrative of pressure from government officials to suppress information deemed unfavorable to their agenda.
Republican Representative Jim Jordan of Ohio took to Twitter to disclose the findings, stating that the emails reveal direct pressure from the White House on Amazon to censor books expressing views contrary to those endorsed by the administration. One email, albeit redacted, explicitly poses the question of whether the administration requested the removal of certain books, to which the answer was affirmative.
National Review highlights the successful efforts of the Biden administration in persuading Amazon to limit the visibility of titles skeptical of vaccine efficacy. White House senior adviser for Covid-19 response, Andrew Slavitt, expressed concerns about Amazon’s role in propagating what he termed as “misinformation” regarding vaccines. His emails illustrate a push for action to address what he perceived as a proliferation of dissenting views.
In response to Slavitt’s inquiries, Amazon initially hesitated to take overt action, fearing backlash from conservative media outlets. The company’s internal deliberations reflect a concern for public perception and the potential amplification of the issue if intervention were too conspicuous.
Despite initially refraining from manual intervention, Amazon eventually succumbed to pressure, engaging in discussions with White House officials. The company’s internal documents reveal deliberations on whether the administration sought outright book bans or alterations to search results. Amazon’s stance, as expressed in their meeting with the White House, emphasized the provision of diverse viewpoints and the distinction between online retail and social media platforms.
