Former ICE Attorney Warns of Delays as Title 42 Comes to an End

Former ICE Official Sends CHILLING Warning About The End Of Title 42

(AmericanProsperity.com) – During the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, then-President Donald Trump enacted Title 42, which allowed authorities at the southern border to turn immigrants back from entering the United States. President Biden allowed the practice to continue through part of his presidency. Now, he’s looking to end Title 42 on May 23, which has some experts concerned as they claim there are already delays in the immigration process.

Incoming Wave

The Biden administration already had an issue with a flood of immigrants attempting to gain entry to the US in his first year of presidency. Now, with the end of Title 42, Secretary of the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Alejandro Mayorkas talked with CNN about his department’s estimation that as many as 18,000 immigrants could attempt to pass the border per day after May 23.

According to US Customs and Border Protection (CBP), the agency has already encountered over 1 million people trying to cross the southern border illegally. That’s with Title 42 in place; without it, the DHS expects that number to increase exponentially but claims it’s prepared.

Delays Already Plaguing System

A former Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) senior attorney, John Giron, told Fox News the immigration system is currently overworked and overwhelmed, adding the end of Title 42 would only amplify that fact. The former ICE attorney mentioned the agency has already reported delays and long lines at facilities in Florida, asserting his doubt that ICE will be able to handle the surge.

Giron mentioned the especially long lines outside of the Orlando office, adding that it’s become a common occurrence at offices across the country. Fox News reported that during a Senate hearing, members quoted Mayorkas admitting the immigration system is already strained. Adding the Center for Disease Control’s (CDC) decision to end Title 42 would result in a surge of immigrants, further straining the system. He noted he believes the DHS will successfully handle the surge despite the increased stress.

The former ICE attorney, now an immigration attorney, talked about how people outside of the ICE offices are fresh illegal immigrants, asserting there is a connection between the sheer number of people and the delays. The Fox News report indicates that ICE claims the lines outside of its facilities have decreased.

Should Title 42 End?

With the number of COVID-19 infections dropping and the world seemingly going back to normal, Biden believes it may be time to end Title 42, and the CDC agrees. But should the administration put an end to it if doing so will add even more stress to the US immigration system? As of now, the legislation has allowed authorities to keep a handle on the southern border.

Even with the policy in place, there have been issues with keeping the country secure. President Biden should keep Title 42 in place to help the CBP keep things under control. Also, while COVID-19 cases may be going down, that direction could quickly reverse course depending on the number of immigrants who cross into the United States with the infectious disease.

Do you think Title 42 should be lifted or kept in place?
