More Democrats urge Biden not to lift Title 42; will ‘create chaos’

Democrats are asking President Joe Biden not to rescind Title 42, as they are well aware of the catastrophic repercussions. Late Wednesday of this week, Nevada Governor Steve Sisolak sent a letter to Biden stating ending Title 42 without a proper plan in place will “create chaos.”

Democrats Gary Peters, Senator from Michigan, Elissa Slotkin, a Michigan Congresswoman, and Abigail Spanberger of Virginia wrote a letter to Biden urging him not to lift Title 42. The number of migrants crossing the border surged to its highest number in over two decades just last month.

The Democrats addressed their letter to Secretary of Homeland Security (DHS) Alejandro Mayorkas, Secretary of State Antony Blinken and domestic policy advisor Susan Rice, stating Title 42 should not be lifted until a comprehension plan to tackle the immigration crisis is ready.

Representatives Slotkin and Spanberger face tough reelection races, therefore pushing the Biden administration not to lift Title 42 goes to show how the administration’s immigration policies have become problematic even for Democrats to support.

Daily Mail writes, “President Biden announced that Title 42, the Centers for Disease Control’s (CDC) public health order that allows border agents to immediately expel migrants, would expire on May 23. DHS revealed that it was expecting up to 18,000 encounters per day on the southern border once the policy is lifted – more than double the current rate of 7,000 and more than triple the DHS’ operational capacity of 5,000 per day.”

“While the administration gave itself two months to prepare, what has been shared with us to date seems like too little, too late – especially when the removal of Title 42 will occur at the same time that a spike in seasonal migration occurs,” the lawmakers’ letter states.

The letter also urged the Biden administration to “think creatively” about increasing legal migration. “Slotkin and Spanberger said that departments like State and Commerce need to work together to expand in-country processing so migrants are not making the dangerous trek to the southern border and issuing more work visas” adds the Daily Mail.

    It is mind boggling trying to understand why Biden is so intent upon bringing millions of undocumented, unvaccinated, and illegal aliens across our border.
    These are not skilled workers from India or other countries that are financially independent and contribute to our economy. Biden’s illegals are mostly unable to contribute to our nation. And tax payers will be paying for their lodging, food, clothing, medical care, education and more.
    All we can do is transport them to Washington DC, Delaware and other locations that support this insanity.

BREAKING: Senate votes down both articles of impeachment against Mayorkas in party-line vote

Mayorkas

The Senate voted down two articles of impeachment Wednesday which alleged Department of Homeland Security Secretary  Alejandro Mayorkas engaged in the “willful and systemic refusal to comply with the law” regarding the southern border in his capacity as DHS secretary. The second claimed Mayorkas had breached public trust.

What resulted in a party-line vote, began with Majority Leader Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., proposing a point of order declaring the first article unconstitutional, to which the majority of senators agreed following several failed motions by Republicans. The article was deemed unconstitutional by a vote of 51-48, with Sen. Lisa Murkowski, R-Alaska, voting present.

Fox News reports:

Schumer’s point of order was proposed after his request for unanimous consent, which would have provided a set amount of time for debate among the senators, as well as votes on two GOP resolutions and a set amount of agreed upon points of order, was objected to by Sen. Eric Schmitt, R-Mo.

Schmitt stated in his objection that the Senate should conduct a full trial into the impeachment articles against Mayorkas, rather than the debate and points of order suggested by Schumer’s unanimous consent request, which would be followed by a likely successful motion to dismiss the articles. 

Republican senators took issue with Schumer’s point of order, as agreeing to it would effectively kill the first of the two articles. Several GOP lawmakers proposed motions, which took precedence over the point of order, to adjourn or table the point, among other things. But all GOP motions failed. 

After another batch of motions to avoid voting on Schumer’s second point of order, which would deem the second article unconstitutional, the Senate agreed to it. The vote was along party lines 51-49, with Murkowski rejoining the Republicans.
