Battleground State Democrats Panic over Biden Ending Trump-Era Border Controls: ‘A Frightening Decision’:
House and Senate Democrats, representing battleground and swing states, are panicking over President Joe Biden’s “frightening decision” to end the Title 42 border control — a move expected to spur the largest wave of illegal immigration in American history.
On Friday, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced that the Biden administration would end Title 42 — a broad authority that allows federal immigration officials to quickly return border crossers and illegal aliens to their native countries.
As a result, Biden officials admit that anywhere from 500,000 to 540,000 border crossers and illegal aliens are expected to show up at the United States-Mexico border every month. This is the equivalent of a population the size of Atlanta, Georgia or Fresno, California arriving at the border over the course of just 28 to 30 days.
Sen. Joe Manchin (D-WV) called the move “a frightening decision.”
“Title 42 has been an essential tool in combatting the spread of COVID-19 and controlling the influx of migrants at our southern border,” Manchin said. “We are already facing an unprecedented increase in migrants this year, and that will only get worse if the administration ends the Title 42 policy. We are nowhere near prepared to deal with that influx.”
Sens. Kyrsten Sinema (D-AZ) and Mark Kelly (D-AZ), both of who urged Biden to keep Title 42 in place, said the decision shows the depth to which the White House does not understand the toll illegal immigration has on border communities. --->READ MORE HERE

oe Manchin leads Democrats’ calls for CDC to keep Title 42 in place:
Moderate Sen. Joe Manchin has joined a growing chorus of Democrats calling on the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention to keep the Trump-era immigration policy known as Title 42 in place, citing rising cases of COVID-19 and an anticipated migration surge this spring.
“With encounters along our southern border surging and the highly-transmissible Omicron BA.2 subvariant emerging as the dominate [sic] strain in the United States, now is not the time to throw caution to the wind,” Manchin (D-WV) wrote in a letter to CDC Director Dr. Rochelle Walensky on Tuesday.
“I urge you to again renew this commonsense policy that has been in effect — under both Republican and Democratic Administrations — since March 2020.”
Manchin pointed to recent increases in COVID-19 cases in the United Kingdom, Germany, Finland, and Switzerland as well as Asian nations as a result of BA.2.
“Shanghai, for example, was recently forced to implement its most expansive lockdown policy in nearly two years,” Manchin wrote before citing a recent UK study that estimated the new variant transmits COVID-19 approximately 80 percent faster than Omicron. --->READ MORE HERE
