The political left has been actively pushing for the end of Title 42 as the only existing legal avenue for direct expulsion of illegal immigrants back to their country of origin. Without the protections in place, border agents will now be forced to release the majority of migrants into the US under asylum.
At the same time, the media and the Biden Administration have also been pressing the narrative that there has been “no significant increase” in illegal crossings with the expiration of the policy. The message is that Title 42 is not as important as the public thinks it is in stopping illegal caravans. However, the migrants sneaking into the US today might disagree.
CNN may have accidentally let slip the reality of impending invasion post-Title 42 when an illegal migrant they interviewed indicated that was the exact reason why he crossed the US border in the first place. The news crew quickly moves past the segment with little more than a brief acknowledgment of the very thing border states have been warning about for many months.
CNN: “Were you aware of Title 42 and that they were gonna open the border like before the pandemic?”
CNN: “That’s why you came?”
