Arizona Democratic Sen. Mark Kelly is cautioning that the Biden administration does not have a good plan in place for the coming end of the Title 42 public health order that has been used to quickly remove migrants at the border, alerting the border will witness a "crisis" if the order is ended without adequate preparation.

"I spent 15 years flying the Space Shuttle as a pilot of the Space Shuttle, commander of the Space Shuttle," Kelly explained to Fox News Digital in an interview Friday. "We spent a lot of time preparing and training and making sure we have the right things in place for stuff that's expected, and we spend an equal amount on stuff that's unexpected, the contingency plans."

"In this case, the administration hasn't even prepared, and they don't have a plan for what to expect. Forget about the unexpected part, I'm just asking for the first part of this. We know what the situation on the ground is going to be. Let’s come up with a detailed plan and put it in place — and I just haven’t seen that."

This month, the Biden administration declared that it will end the order, which has been used since March 2020 to expel a majority of migrants at the border on May 23. It ignited concerns from both Republicans and Democrats — including Kelly — that finishing Title 42 will pave the way to an overwhelming surge at the border. The Biden administration has announced it is preparing for up to 18,000 migrants a day.

Kelly spoke to Fox News Digital after a visit to the Arizona border, his fifth since becoming a senator. There, he visited the Douglas Port of Entry, which is being rebuilt with $400 million in funding he secured in the bipartisan infrastructure bill. He further spoke to officials regarding improving technology at the border in an attempt "to try to interdict more of the fentanyl that's coming across the border heading north and the firearms and cash that head south."

He further met with Border Patrol, speaking to agents and getting an intelligence briefing on how the cartels operate and benefit financially by moving migrants into the United States.

Cochise County Sheriff Mark Dannels praised Kelly for his efforts to stop raising Title 42, telling local outlets he had not been victorious in getting administration officials to visit his part of the border.

"I applaud Sen. Kelly for his support of Title 42 during a time where our southern border is already under crisis," Dannels told the Sierra Vista Herald.
