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 any 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 effective May 23.
The decision to end Title 42 was a critical victory in our fight to restore the human right to seek asylum. But now, anti-immigrant lawmakers are attempting to override CDC and the Biden administration by passing legislation in Congress that mandates Title 42’s continuation. We must take action: Tell Congress to oppose any interference with CDC’s decision to end the brutal, anti-immigrant Title 42 policy.
