GREAT NEWS: Trump Admin Indefinitely Extends Authority That Allows Immediate Return Of Illegal Aliens

The Trump administration is extending an authority that allows immigration officers to immediately return illegal entrants along the U.S.-Mexico border for as long as it deems fit.
While the White House has chosen to renew an international agreement which blocks all non-essential traffic on its northern and southern borders, it has chosen to allow a specific health order to remain in place until the director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) decides the COVID-19 crisis has waned.
Hours after news broke on Tuesday that the border closures would remain in place for another month, the chief of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced that Title 42, first put into place in response to the coronavirus outbreak, would remain in place at the discretion of the CDC director.
“This order has been one of the most critical tools the Department has used to prevent the further spread of the virus and to protect the American people, DHS frontline officers, and those in their care and custody from COVID-19,” Chad Wolf, the acting secretary of DHS, said in a statement Tuesday.
Illegal entrants processed under Title 42 are intended to be kept out of facilities after they are “encountered,” which carries less legal ramifications than an “apprehension.” These aliens are also not technically “deported,” but “expelled,” a process that can be conducted much faster.
These technicalities allow Customs and Border Protection (CBP) officials to quickly send illegal immigrants back over the Mexican border when possible, sharply mitigating the risk of an outbreak from an appended foreign national.
