Migrants should be welcomed with dignity and have their human rights respected.
But today, the United States is failing in its obligation to do that. For the past two years, the U.S. has turned away hundreds of thousands of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border under Title 42. This anti-immigrant policy has deported many people back to dangerous conditions—and forced others to take treacherous routes, facing extreme heat, violence, and even death. And recently, the Biden administration announced new draconian measures to bar migrants from seeking asylum and plans to expand barriers to asylum by reviving Trump-era bans.
While Title 42 will end in May with the termination of the public health emergency, President Biden’s new policies will have harmful effects that last beyond this.
