Uncivil War: Democrats Furious That Biden Still Using Trump Policy

Saturday, angry Senate Democrats called for the Biden administration to end the use of Title 42, a Trump-era immigration rule enacted in the early days of the pandemic to immediately expel migrants at the border under the guise of a public health emergency. This comes as the progressive wing of the party blasted Biden for "following in Trump's footsteps".

What is happening behind the scenes is nothing short of a Democrat party that is terrified of the Justice Democrats (AKA socialist) aligned progressives as they seek to replace moderate Democrats with uber-liberals. The party is fracturing, and the old guard is running scared of the AOC-led squad who is unhappy that the promises Biden made to them in exchange for their support are not being fulfilled.

Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) alongside Sens. Bob Menendez (D-N.J.), Cory Booker (D-N.J.), and Alex Padilla (D-Calif.), issued a statement that it is time to officially end the policy.

"The continued use of Title 42 has created life-threatening conditions for vulnerable migrants, enriched human smugglers, and significantly increased the number of dangerous border crossings," the senators stated. “We urge the Biden Administration to fulfill its early promise to restore access to asylum and end the usage of Title 42 once and for all."

The Department of Homeland Security is still operating under Title 42 two years after former President Trump implemented the order, expelling hundreds of thousands of migrants.

However, the Biden administration carved out an exception for unaccompanied migrant children, but a Texas judge ruled against the exemption on Friday.

On Friday, a separate judge ruled migrants can be expelled under the order, but not to countries where they face the risk of persecution or torture.

In their joint statement, the senators mentioned last summer's crisis at the border, when Haitian families gathered in encampments in Del Rio, Texas and were later expelled, as a concerning use of Title 42. At the time, Haiti was reeling from political chaos and natural disaster.

"We all watched in horror as thousands of Haitian families, including infants, were returned to Haiti without the opportunity to seek asylum," the senators went on to state. "Turning away families seeking protection from torture or persecution is not who we are."

The lawmakers also argued that the use of Title 42 needed to be reassessed as a public health measure, given that the United States appeared to be entering a new stage of the pandemic.

"The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention should review their current order given the progress our nation has made in its pandemic recovery," the senators further pressed. "As we emerge from this pandemic, it is time for the Administration to reinstate humanitarian protection at our borders.”

Lee Gelernt, an American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) attorney who filed the lawsuit against Title 42, hailed Friday's ruling as an "enormous victory" for asylum-seekers. "Title 42 can no longer be used to summarily expel families seeking refuge from persecution or torture," he told CBS News.
