The Biden administration is searching high and low for a solution ahead of a new migrant crisis that will quickly get out of hand, according to analysts.
The White House is now looking into a new rule witch would keep Title 42 rules in effect after fear illegal border crossings will surge to 14,000 a day once the Trump era rule stops.
There was a big surge in migrants across the border recently, and it was big enough that even CNN reported on it in the video below:
According to Axios:
Driving the news: Title 42, implemented during the Trump administration and extended by President Biden, allows for the rapid expulsion of migrants and asylum seekers at the border. It’s scheduled to be lifted in less than two weeks, barring last-minute court intervention.
- Encounters with migrants at the southern border are already at record levels, with the daily tally surpassing 9,000 three times in the first week and a half of December, the sources told Axios.
- Officials now are preparing for the possibility of between 12,000 to 14,000 migrants attempting to cross every day.
Behind the scenes: A draft rule that would impose an asylum ban for roughly five months — initially — has been circulated internally.
- It would apply to both migrant single adults and families who cross the border illegally — as well as those who arrive at legal ports of entry without already having proper authorization to enter.
- A final decision on adopting the new rule hasn’t been made.
- A White House spokesperson referred Axios to a recent tweet by press secretary Karine Jean-Pierre that emphasized “no such decisions have been made” regarding policy changes.
“The Administration is committed to continuing to secure our borders while maintaining safe, orderly and humane processing of migrants. This will remain the case when Title 42 is lifted,” Jean-Pierre said.
Migrants are already amassing at the border, waiting for the end of Title 42.
If this is allowed to continue, it will be a disaster for our nation. Millions more non-skilled workers will be able to compete with American citizens in an economy that isn’t going the way it should be and has no prayer of stopping before it heads straight over the cliff.
