Manchin Statement on End of Title 42

Washington, DC – Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) released the following statement regarding the expiration of Title 42 despite the record high numbers of illegal border crossing into the United States. 

“We are one day from the end of Title 42 and still the Biden Administration has no viable solution to prevent an unmanageable surge of migrants at our southern border. There are multiple commonsense solutions to this crisis, including my bipartisan bill that would give the Administration a two-year temporary expulsion authority for migrants attempting to illegally enter the U.S. without inspection or proper documentation. While I do not support every provision, Republicans in the House of Representatives are at least working on a border security bill to fill the leadership vacuum created by this Administration. Our country cannot maintain our superpower status if we cannot control our own border.”
