(DCWatchdog.com) – Texas Governor Greg Abbott is warning that starting this week, there will be “total chaos” on the Southern Border of the United States of America because the administration of President Joe Biden and Vice President Kamala Harris is ending Title 42.
As USA Today explains in “Texas governor warns of ‘total chaos’ on border when Title 42 ends this week“:
“The southern border will be overwhelmed this week by the end of a pandemic policy that allows the federal government to rapidly expel migrants, Texas Gov. Greg Abbott warned Sunday.
“‘It’s going to be total chaos,’ Abbott told ABC News’ “This Week with George Stephanopoulos.”
“A Trump-era policy known as Title 42 that permits Customs and Border Protection to expel migrants without the usual legal review to Mexico or to their home countries to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in holding facilities will expire Wednesday unless the Supreme Court intervenes.” [emphasis added]
The Biden administration doesn’t share Abbott’s concern.
“White House press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said Thursday the administration is extensively preparing to manage the border ‘in a safe and humane way’ when Title 42 ends.” [emphasis added]
Meanwhile, the Mayor of El Paso, Texas, a city that sits on the border with Mexico, has declared a state of emergency given the expected inflow of illegal aliens combined with the already existing flow.
What is your opinion about Title 42 being allowed to expire and the anticipated “chaos” ensuing as even more illegal aliens enter the United States of America? Please share your thoughts by emailing [email protected]. Thank you.
El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser said the sight of people on downtown streets with temperatures dipping below freezing was the catalyst for the decision.https://t.co/PGv7sczzhc
