End of Title 42 will ‘open floodgates to illegal migration’

EL PASO, Texas (Border Report) – More than 100,000 newly arrived migrants were released into the U.S. in March, a number likely to balloon once the Biden administration ends Title 42 in May, Border Patrol union leaders say.

That’s because border agents have been using the Trump-era public health rule to expel between 52 and 55 percent of unauthorized migrants, said National Border Patrol Council President Brandon Judd. The rest were processed under a federal statute called Title 8, which in most cases allows them to stay in the U.S. while their cases are reviewed.
