Realizing that he finally needs to do something about the border crisis he created, Biden is doing something shameless and pathetic. Sure, shameless and pathetic is his whole schtick, but now he is going to use a rule activated by President Trump in March 2020 to get rid of some of the mob of more than 14,500 illegals currently camping out under a bridge in Texas.
Title 42 allows the Border Patrol and Customs to prohibit people who potentially pose a health risk from entering the United States if they unlawfully entered the country to bypass health screening procedures. This, of course, includes illegals who skipped COVID screening. Though the Biden Administration doesn’t make them get vaccinated like the rest of us or quarantine or do anything resembling protecting the communities they enter, immigrants are in fact required to be screened for COVID upon entry into the United States. The Washington Free Beacon reports that Biden is using Title 42 to get rid of some of the mob:
The Department of Homeland Security will now use Title 42 to “accelerate the pace and increase the capacity” of deportations from Del Rio. More than 14,500 migrants, a majority of whom are Haitian, have flooded the border city, leading the city’s Democratic mayor to plead with Biden for more help alleviating the crisis, the Washington Free Beacon reported Friday. An inspector general’s report released this month found that Biden’s handling of the border has put Americans’ health at risk.
Around 3,300 of the immigrants have already been deported or detained, Border Patrol chief Raul L. Ortiz said at a Sunday press conference. Under the Biden plan, Homeland Security will deport families with children, a policy that has faced court challenges and led to harsh criticism from some human rights groups and Democratic lawmakers.
This means that Biden is breaking a campaign promise not to deport any immigrants during his first 100 days in office — and another that after that, “the only deportations that will take place are commissions of felonies.” Biden’s campaign has previously called Title 42 an “assault on our values.”
But apparently, it’s no longer an “assault on our values” when Biden needs to clean up a mess he made at the start of his sham presidency and has allowed to get worse as time has gone on. Strangely, Democrats are not calling him evil or calling for his impeachment. Funny how that works.
