As the days creep closer to the end of the Title 42 immigration policy, more and more lawmakers are sounding the alarm. The calls have grown loud — and for good reason: 18,000 illegal migrants could cross the border per day once Title 42 ends.
“I’m very concerned, not only for the American people, but also for Border Patrol, who continues to be in a crisis now for 15 months, and they have no end in sight…” – Chad Wolf, former acting Department of Homeland Security secretary
“If Biden lifts Title 42, it will be catastrophic for the United States of America. It means more than 6 million people will be coming across the border in a year. It’s the most disastrous thing … anybody has witnessed in our lifetime.” – Texas Gov. Greg Abbott
Yet, there’s one group who’s silence on the looming crisis is deafening. Where is the Left?!
Not only will a flood of migrants overwhelm our strained border security apparatus, but it will pose a threat to the health of our communities.
Cases of tuberculosis, once controlled in the U.S., are now rising nationwide, especially in border states. Legal immigrants must comply with our laws requiring immunization, but there is no way to enforce these laws for those who cross our borders illegally.
This isn’t a political issue. For our national security, it is imperative that we prevent a worsening public health crisis for citizens and migrants alike.
