Manchin Statement on Biden Administration Expansion of Title 42 Order, Border Enforcement Actions

Charleston, WV Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) released the following statement on the Biden Administration’s decision to expand the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Title 42 order to include Cuba, Haiti and Nicaragua, along with other actions including surging resources to the border. In December, Senator Manchin led a bipartisan, bicameral letter urging President Joe Biden to extend the CDC’s Title 42 order.

“Our southern border is facing an immigration crisis that threatens to overwhelm our broken immigration system. I am pleased with the Biden Administration’s decision to expand Title 42 to Cuba, Haiti and Nicaragua to help address the current crisis, but this is not the permanent solution we need. I remain committed to working with the Administration and my bipartisan colleagues to pass comprehensive, bipartisan immigration legislation.”
