Biden Administration Announces Additional Measures to Address the End of Title 42 Immigration Authorities Tomorrow

Ahead of tomorrow’s expiration of pandemic-era Title 42 migrant expulsion authorities, President Joe Biden acknowledged that the situation at the border will be “chaotic for a while” and announced additional measures his Administration will implement in response to the expiration of Title 42.

Specifically, Biden said that the Administration will: (1) send 24,000 law enforcement personnel and 1,100 new border patrol processing coordinators to the U.S.-Mexico border; (2) open up 100 regional migrant processing centers throughout Central America; (3) launch an online platform for migrants to schedule an appointment at one of the processing centers; and (4) enforce Title 8, which allows for the expedited deportation of migrants who are encountered between legal ports of entry.

In addition, the Biden Administration also issued a final rule that would require migrants seeking asylum in the United States to first seek and be denied asylum in another country before attempting to do so in the U.S.

This comes as large makeshift camps of migrants have formed along the southern border and an estimated 150,000 people travel through Mexico toward the U.S. border.
