DHS Secretary Mayorkas Asks Congress to Support Biden’s Amnesty and Mass Immigration Plan While Title 42 Is Still in Effect


    Responding to the decision of the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to maintain Title 42 in place at the U.S.-Mexico border for the time being, Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas is calling on Congress to support the plan of President Joe Biden that will grant amnesty to illegal immigrants and increase competition from foreign workers in the job market.

    SCOTUS ruled that Title 42—the public-health authority that was first established in 2020—will remain in place to assist with swiftly deporting illegal aliens who arrive at the country's border areas until at least the summer of 2023.

    Mayorkas, in an official statement issued by the DHS, called on Congress to approve President Joe Biden's amnesty and mass migration plan while Title 42 remains in place. DHS officials wrote in a statement:

    “We will continue to manage the border, but we do so within the constraints of a decades-old immigration system that everyone agrees is broken. We need Congress to pass the comprehensive immigration reform legislation President Biden proposed the day he took office.”

    The Supreme Court’s decision was made after a federal court ruled to end Title 42 last month. While the Biden administration hasn't requested the court to preserve the public-health authority, 19 states were able to convince SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts to issue an administrative stay last week.

    After his inauguration, Biden introduced the plan, which would grant amnesty to the nation's 11 to 22 million undocumented aliens as well as expand legal immigration to bring in more foreign workers with whom middle- and working-class Americans will have to compete for U.S. jobs.
