House Democrats Push Back on Joe Biden’s Ending of Title 42

House Democrats and Republicans unveiled legislation that would block President Joe Biden from ending Title 42, the regulation that makes it easier for the federal government to deport illegal aliens and border crossers.

Reps. Jared Golden (D-ME) and Tony Gonzales (R-TX) introduced the House version of Sens. Mark Kelly (D-AZ) and Kyrsten Sinema’s (D-AZ) legislation that would block the White House from ending Title 42.


Golden, a swing district Democrat, said in a statement on Thursday, “The Biden Administration is not currently prepared for a large increase in border crossings.” The Maine Democrat said ending the Trump policy would be “irresponsible and could create crisis conditions that would be dangerous for both migrants coming to America and Americans themselves.

Reps. Tom O’Halleran (D-AZ), August Pfluger (R-TX), Stephanie Murphy (D-FL), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-PA), Chris Pappas (D-NH), Don Bacon (D-NH), Greg Stanton (D-AZ), and Maria Elvira Salazar (R-FL) cosponsored the legislation.
