Why Biden Can’t Quit Trump’s Worst Immigration Policies

1 4 0

The issue that divides America now divides the Democratic Party, as well.

A major immigration fault line erupted this week when the Biden administration extended a controversial policy from the Trump era that kept out migrants and refugees, and the American Civil Liberties Union and immigrant rights groups immediately responded by saying they would resume a lawsuit filed during the Trump administration but had been paused after Joe Biden was sworn in to give the new president a chance to change course.

The policy at issue is Title 42, which allows Customs and Border Protection agents to expel migrants from the United States without court hearings or due process — ostensibly to prevent the spread of COVID-19.

Instead, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced this week that Title 42 "shall remain in effect until the CDC Director determines that the danger of further introduction of COVID-19 into the United States from covered non citizens has ceased to be a serious danger to the public health.”

That’s what set off the folks on the left.

“We gave the Biden administration more than enough time to fix any problems left behind by the Trump administration, but it has left us no choice but to return to court,” ACLU attorney Lee Gelernt, the lead lawyer on the case, said in a statement.
