Missouri AG Schmitt says lifting Title 42 will unleash ‘tsunami’ of illegal immigration as states push back

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt says a “tsunami” of illegal immigration that will be unleashed by the Biden administration’s lifting of Title 42 will affect every state in the country as his state leads a key legal challenge to the move.

Missouri, along with Arizona and Louisiana, sued the Biden administration earlier this month over the move to end Title 42, which was implemented by the Trump administration in March 2020 in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It allows for the rapid expulsion of migrants at the border.

Republicans and Democrats, along with some in the Biden administration, have warned that lifting the public health order will lead to a massive surge in migration on top of already high levels. DHS has been planning for up to 18,000 migrants a day.
