CHC Statement on Continuation of Title 42


Last night, the Biden Administration stated it will no longer expel unaccompanied minors arriving at our southern border under Title 42. However, the order does not apply to families seeking asylum. Considering these events, CHC Chair Raul Ruiz, M.D. issued the following statement:

 

“While we welcome the Biden Administration’s move to humanely treat unaccompanied minors, enough is enough,” said Chair Dr. Ruiz. “It is long overdue to completely end the Trump-initiated Title 42 policy and stop using the pandemic as an excuse to keep it going. Transmission rates are low, there are safe testing and quarantining protocols, and vaccines are readily available. End Trump’s Title 42 now.”
