Manchin Statement on SCOTUS Extension of Title 42 Order

Washington, DC Today, U.S. Senator Joe Manchin (D-WV) released the following statement on Supreme Court of the United States Chief Justice Roberts’ order to stay the DC District Court’s decision to overturn the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Title 42 order. Last week, Senator Manchin led a bipartisan, bicameral letter urging President Joe Biden to extend the CDC’s Title 42 order beyond the December 21st deadline.

“There is an immigration crisis at our southern border that is unlike anything we have ever seen. While I am pleased by Chief Justice Roberts’ order that will avert a disaster temporarily, it is not a permanent solution. I am committed to working with my bipartisan colleagues to ensure Congress and the Biden Administration work together to find a comprehensive and bipartisan immigration solution.”
