To End, Or Not To End, Title 42
The Biden administration is preparing to allow a controversial border policy, enacted by the Trump administration, to end. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention instituted Title 42 in March of 2020, essentially sending asylum seekers back to their home countries rather than allowing them to stay in the US, in an effort to combat the spread of COVID-19. Now, however, the CDC appears ready to end that policy. Republicans in Congress warn ending Title 42 will lead to an avalanche of asylum seekers along our southern border, with no plan in place to process or house them; Democrats say it's time to stop forcing those who are fleeing from violence to return to their native countries. Joining The Rundown to talk about this story, as well as a good news story taking place in the state of Ohio, is CBN News Senior National Affairs Correspondent Heather Sells.
