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.

BREAKING: DHS Secretary Mayorkas Supports Amnesty
During a heated testimony, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas expressed his support for amnesty and a path to citizenship for those who have entered the United States illegally.
Mayorkas tried to dodge at first, saying “only Congress can provide legal status or amnesty through the laws to those who enter the country illegally.” When prompted by Republican Congressman Andy Biggs of Arizona who said “we’re not talking about who passes laws or not, but your philosophy as the DHS Secretary, would you support amnesty?”
Mayorkas responded, “Congressman, I fully support and have for many years, legislative reform that once and for all fixes our broken immigration system…”
“So I take it that you won’t make that statement now…” said Biggs.
“No I will, if you’ll allow me” Mayorkas said, “and it involves a path to citizenship for those who have been in this country for many years, who have contributed to the wellbeing of our country.”
“The answer is you would support amnesty of some kind” Biggs said of his response.
