Title 42, a brutal policy initiated under Trump, strips people at the border of the right to seek asylum by expelling them to Mexico or their country of origin without the opportunity to seek protection under U.S. laws. After a recent review of the policy, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) found the policy is not necessary to protect public health. and issued an order ending the policy. A federal judge also recognized the grave harms caused by Title 42 and ordered its end.
These orders to end Title 42 are critical victories in our fight to restore the human right to seek asylum. But now, anti-immigrant lawmakers are attempting to override CDC and the legal ruling by passing legislation in Congress that mandates Title 42’s continuation. Tell Congress to oppose any attempt to extend the brutal, anti-immigrant Title 42 policy.
