Your Big Sky: “I’m concerned about the Administration’s lack of preparation for Title 42 to end” – Sen. Jon Tester
“We need secure borders and I’m concerned about the Administration’s lack of preparation for Title 42 to end. I pressed Homeland Security officials this week about their ability to target Mexican and Chinese drug cartels, and I’ll keep pushing for more action,” said Sen. Tester on Friday.
Mayors of towns along the southern U.S. border are calling on the Biden administration to provide more federal resources ahead of the end of Title 42, which is expected to result in an influx of migrants.
Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas was at the border Thursday meeting with local officials. Mayorkas has been under fire throughout his tenure from critics who contend he’s failing to keep the border secure, and some congressional Republicans have called for his impeachment.
Title 42 is a pandemic-era policy that allowed officials to turn away migrants at the border. It’s set to end May 11, and the Biden administration says it’s taking steps to handle the expected uptick.
