Rep. Long Reacts to End of Title 42

Washington D.C.- Congressman Billy Long issued the following statement after the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced the end of Title 42.

“The decision to end Title 42 is idiotic,” Congressman Long said. “Title 42 is a public health policy implemented by President Trump that has been used to quickly expel migrants at the Southern Border since the start of the COVID-19 pandemic. Since President Biden has come into office we have seen a massive spike in illegal immigration, all thanks to the Biden Administration ending common sense Trump Administration policies. Now they are ending Title 42, which will lead to an even greater surge of illegal immigrants at our Southern Border. The Border Patrol has said the Biden Administration has no plan to deal with the surge that will occur once Title 42 is removed. This is another ill-conceived blunder by President Biden that will have disastrous consequences. When I first heard the news I thought it was an April Fool’s joke, but sadly I was wrong.”
