Joe Biden Bucks Party, Will End Title 42 as Planned:
After previously indicating that he hadn’t made a decision on Title 42, Politico reports that the Biden White House is standing by its original decision to end the Trump-era immigration policy put in place during the pandemic, which is set to to be lifted on May 23.
Biden’s decision to end the policy, which will likely exacerbate the ongoing border crisis, has received bipartisan criticism, prompting Biden to reconsider lifting the policy.
“It’s not like we’ve been hiding the ball on this,” a White House official told Politico. “This is not a policy to applaud or defend or anything. It simply is a public health directive on whether there is a public health risk associated with processing migrants or not. The [Centers for Disease Control and Prevention] made a determination that there wasn’t and that we’re OK to move forward with lifting it on May 23.”
On Thursday morning, Biden confused Title 42 with the federal transportation mask mandate, which was recently ruled “unlawful” by a federal judge in Florida. --->READ MORE HERE
Citing cover-up, House Republicans call for COVID-19 origins investigation:
Republican members of the House Select Subcommittee on the Coronavirus Crisis are calling for an investigation into the origins of COVID-19, citing evidence that research conducted at the Wuhan Institute of Virology could have launched the pandemic.
The calls center on a group called EcoHealth Alliance and its president, Peter Daszak, who received taxpayer-funded grants to conduct gain-of-function research on bat coronaviruses in Wuhan. EcoHealth and Daszak violated the grant terms and potentially worked to hide the origins of COVID-19, according to the members.
“EcoHealth Alliance facilitated research at the Wuhan lab that may have caused the COVID pandemic and poses risk to cause future pandemics," said Kentucky Rep. James Comer, ranking member of the House Committee on Oversight and Reform. "Instead of coming forward, Daszak and EcoHealth Alliance have chosen to shield the Chinese Communist Party and cover up their involvement."
Comer and five other Republicans, including Minority Whip Steve Scalise, sent a letter to Health and Human Services Secretary Xavier Becerra calling for the investigation.
"EcoHealth Alliance and Dr. Daszak shouldn’t receive another dime from U.S. taxpayers while they continue to shield the truth of what happened in Wuhan," Comer said, noting a "pattern of unethical conduct." --->READ MORE HERE
