(TruthandLiberty.com) – In March 2020, the Trump administration introduced Title 42. The pandemic-era border health policy allows the US Border Patrol to immediately reject immigrants from entering the United States to prevent the spread of COVID-19. The rule allows the government to turn away migrants over public health concerns, even those who apply for asylum. In late March, the Biden administration announced its plans to end Title 42 in May.
In an exclusive Breitbart article, the conservative news outlet revealed it obtained a leaked copy of a new immigration scheme concocted by Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas. The February document is called “DHS Southwest Border Mass Irregular Migration Contingency Plan.”
According to Breitbart, Mayorkas’ plan intends to direct that immigrants are entitled to every opportunity to stay in the United States, regardless of the damage the policy inflicts on everyday hard-working Americans once the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) lifts Title 42.

On April 1, Mayorkas released a statement, saying once Title 42 is no longer in place, the Border Patrol will resume processing illegal immigrants under Title 8 starting May 23. He concludes by saying the administration will secure the border, enforce US immigration laws, and stay true to the Democrat’s values. He concluded, saying the long-term solution is for Congress to pass comprehensive immigration reforms and fix the broken system.
Still, is that really the problem? Or do current laws and the system run smack against the Left’s agenda — prompting them to decry a broken system? Three states are suing to keep Title 42 in place and the floodgates closed.
