Washington, DC – Right now, Congressman Van Drew issued a assertion on President Biden deciding to conclude Title 42, our strongest illegal immigration deterrent, when there is a surging number of illegal immigrants infiltrating the United States and generating their way previous border patrol brokers.

“Just last thirty day period, about 62,000 unlawful immigrants escaped past Border Patrol brokers and designed their way into the United States,” explained Congressman Van Drew. “That is over 2,000 unlawful immigrants who infiltrate our place everyday, and these are only the kinds that are described. Our border patrol agents are overcome, and now President Biden has announced that he will be ending Title 42 – our strongest illegal immigration deterrent. Just in February, around 50 % of the unlawful immigrants encountered at our southern border were expelled less than Title 42.”

“Just two weeks back, Biden officers indicated that the United States would see a ‘mass migration event’ if COVID guidelines finished, which includes Title 42,” included Congressman Van Drew. “Now, President Biden finds it acceptable to close Title 42, but has place forth no sign of a substitution deterrent to control unlawful immigrants entering into the country. On best of the surge in illegal immigrants getting encountered at our southern border, there have been around 3,600 arrests of unlawful migrants with legal data. President Biden is not putting the American persons very first by allowing illegal immigrants to commit violent functions in their residence place and then be able to vacation freely into the United States. President Biden must wake up and guard our country’s borders.”

“Congress must act to halt this, which is why I have joined H.R. 7359 as a co-sponsor, which will extend Title 42 to make sure that our strongest illegal immigration deterrent stays in location.”
