Cassidy Reacts to Biden Rescinding Trump-Era Policy to Stop Mass Migration

WASHINGTON – Today, U.S. Senator Bill Cassidy (R-LA) released the following statement in response to President Biden’s repeal of Title 42, a Trump administration policy that expedited the deportation of migrants at the Southern border to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Once the policy is lifted, an estimated 170,000 migrants are expected to attempt entry into the United States.

“Removing Title 42 is a mistake that will encourage another wave of illegal migration and drug trafficking to overwhelm the Southern border,” said Dr. Cassidy. “There is no justification for this.”
