Report: Biden Moving ‘Full Speed Ahead’ with Ending Title 42, Inviting Flood of Illegal Immigration; Biden’s Pathetic Disregard for the Humanitarian Catastrophe at the Border

Report: Biden Moving ‘Full Speed Ahead’ with Ending Title 42, Inviting Flood of Illegal Immigration:
President Joe Biden’s administration is charging “full speed ahead,” an official says, with ending the Title 42 public health authority that has allowed federal immigration officials to quickly deport illegal aliens after they have crossed the United States-Mexico border.
Last month, a federal judge struck down Title 42 — the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) authority first imposed by former President Trump in 2020 that has helped stem waves of illegal immigration.
The Biden administration quickly asked the court for five weeks to end Title 42, ensuring that the authority will be lifted on December 21. While Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) is now appealing the decision, they are not seeking to keep Title 42 in place.
One such administration official told CBS News that Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) “continues to charge full speed ahead in preparing for Title 42 to lift on December 21.”
Another administration official justified to Axios that the CDC has “made a science-based determination that Title 42 is no longer necessary.”
Ending Title 42 is almost certain, according to experts and Biden officials, to invite a flood of illegal immigration that could set daily records at the border. Most recently, anonymous Biden officials said they worry an “open border” message will reach the world’s migrants and spur a massive surge.
The Biden administration’s existing plan will use American taxpayer money to fund additional non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to more quickly release border crossers and illegal aliens into American communities away from the border. --->READ MORE HERE

Biden’s pathetic disregard for the humanitarian catastrophe at the border:
Joe Biden just admitted, yet again, that the humanitarian disaster at our southern border does not matter to him. He simply views it as a negligible price to pay for his open-borders policy.
“There are more important things going on,” sniffed the president, when asked by Fox News’ Peter Doocy why he had not visited the border during an Arizona visit.
Sorry, but there really aren’t any, at least not domestically.
The fiscal year that ended September 30 saw a record 2.4 million migrants encountered at the southern border, up almost 40% from the previous year (which was already a record-breaker). There have been at least 207,000 encounters already in November, as well as 137,000 “gotaways” — migrants spotted but not stopped by Customs and Border Protection agents — since October 1.
Remember too that a huge chunk of those stopped are turned back under Title 42, a Trump-era COVID rule that Biden tried to get rid of (then panicked when he saw how bad the numbers were and reversed course). But a federal court has ordered the rule must expire by Dec. 21. So expect another tidal wave increase to start 2023.
And as bad as they are, the raw numbers can’t give a real sense of the human toll. Small border towns are being strained to the breaking point by migrant inflows. Even El Paso, a midsize city, has been pushed to the point of declaring a state of emergency. And the migrants too bear the cost: At least a record 853 died that fiscal year trying to cross, up from 546 (itself a record) in 2021. Countless others likely died in transit. --->READ MORE HERE
