Trump Blasts Biden Over Border Crisis as Title 42 Drama Continues; Trump Proposes Permanent Title 42 Expulsion Law

Trump blasts Biden over border crisis as Title 42 drama continues:
Former President Donald Trump blasted President Joe Biden as Title 42, the policy used to kick 40% of all illegal border crossers out of the US, was narrowly stopped from expiring on Wednesday by a dramatic last minute appeal to the Supreme Court.
“Over the past two years, Joe Biden has invited millions of illegal aliens to infiltrate our country in a gigantic unlawful invasion,” said Trump in a statement Monday, shortly after the Jan. 6 Select Committee announced it was recommending criminal charges for Trump and his role in the January 6 capitol insurrection.
“By abolishing what remains of Title 42, Biden is willfully and deliberately triggering a cataclysm of illegal immigration like the world has never seen before,” Trump’s statement continued.
Title 42’s end had actually been mandated by a federal judge, who ruled a deadline of Dec. 21 for it to be lifted. However, following an emergency appeal by 19 Republican-led states, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts temporarily halted the lifting and gave the Department of Homeland Security until 5 p.m. Tuesday to respond.
Title 42 was implemented by Trump in 2020 during the pandemic. The rule gives the federal government the ability to take emergency action to stop diseases spreading into the US and was used by Border Patrol to kick out migrants who crossed into the country illegally to stop the spread of COVID-19. --->READ MORE HERE

Trump blasts Biden over border, proposes permanent Title 42 expulsion law:
Former President Donald Trump lashed out at President Biden’s border policies Monday, saying he bequeathed his successor a secure boundary which he then squandered.
Mr. Trump, who has already launched a new bid to challenge Mr. Biden in 2024, proposed new steps for Congress to take to override the White House and reimpose controls on the border.
Among them is a call for a permanent expulsion authority for illegal immigrants, similar to the pandemic Title 42 policy that the Trump team used to nearly end catch-and-release of border crossers in 2020.
Mr. Trump also called for more resources to detain illegal immigrants who can’t be expelled. And he urged Congress to create criminal penalties for government officials who aid and abet releases.
“The border nightmare is happening for a single reason: Because illegal aliens know that if they break into our country unlawfully, Joe Biden will do everything possible to ensure that they are not removed, and are allowed to stay here indefinitely,” Mr. Trump said in a statement issued by his campaign.
His comments came a day before Title 42 is slated to expire at midnight on Tuesday. --->READ MORE HERE
