Senator Hawley Says Biden Doesn't Want a Border

(RepublicanJournal.org) – Officials are currently debating what to do when Title 42 expires. The provision entered regular use during the Trump administration as a means of quickly expelling illegal immigrants from the country. However, the border crisis that has persisted under President Joe Biden is as bad as ever and is almost certain to get worse once the procedure goes out of force. Senator Josh Hawley (R-MO) recently discussed this state of affairs during an appearance on Fox News.

Hawley was sharply critical of the administration, going so far as to suggest Biden officials were actively trying to do away with the southern border by deliberately making the immigration crisis worse. The senator highlighted that 14,000 individuals are arriving at the border every day, and that the Mexican cartels are responsible for a lot of those arrivals.

On December 14, Hawley sent a letter to the acting Assistant Secretary for Border and Immigration Policy at the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary, Blas Nuñez-Neto. The letter noted Hawley’s long-standing disapproval of the idea of canceling Title 42 and asked the official about the plans in place to counteract illegal migration at the border once the measure is gone.

How successful do you think the Biden administration’s attempts to contain illegal immigration at the southern border will be following the end of Title 42?
