In a 5-4 decision, the Supreme Court allowed the continuance of Title 42, the Trump-era rapid expulsion of migrants seeking asylum at the southern border. These people are fleeing violence and extreme poverty and are now living in dire situations while the U.S. courts and legislators play a sinister game of keep away. The Court may not lift the policy until June 2023. At that time it is expected that huge numbers of migrants will be legally seeking asylum in accordance with international and U.S. law.
The Biden administration must create humane and safe corridors of entry for this influx of humanity. Immigration reform is needed now. Our united voices must ensure this inhuman and illegal barbarism ends.
