Biden could end order allowing CBP to turn back migrant families amid COVID-19
Amid a record-smashing surge of illegal immigration to America involving upward of 170,000 crossers a month, President Biden is considering ending a public health order that allows US border officials to turn away migrant families in Mexico, according to a report.
Title 42 — the policy established through the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to prevent COVID-19 from hitting the US — allows Customs and Border Protection to expel migrants to avoid the virus’ spread in holding facilities.
The public health order, enacted by President Donald Trump in March 2020, has not been reversed by Biden despite continued pressure from immigration activists, human rights groups and the American Civil Liberties Union.
Biden, Axios reported Monday, is considering ending the order — which has resulted in tens of thousands of migrant family members being sent away — as early as July 31. --->READ MORE HERE

White House Considers Ending COVID-Inspired Migrant Family Expulsions: Report
The Biden administration is considering ending the use of Title 42, a Trump-era public health order that has allowed U.S. border officials to quickly expel migrant families to Mexico, as soon as next month, according to a new report.
Title 42 has been used to quickly turn back tens of thousands of migrant family members at the border. According to Axios, the White House is eyeing ending the use of the policy as early as July 31.
While the rule was initially put in place during the pandemic to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, the report notes that top CDC officials and physicians who serve as consultants for the Department of Homeland Security have opposed using the public health order to expel migrants.
President Biden had reportedly been briefed on a plan for ending the policy by the end of next month, or allowing a court to end it. --->READ MORE HERE
