Around the world, citizens of war torn countries in the Middle East (Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan), Africa (Libya, Sudan), Central & South America and others are fleeing oppression and death to reach freedom and safety. Europe is being overrun with these refugees. This experience is adding greater fuel to the already passionate immigration debate in the US by the needs of these refugees. We must remember that refugees are a portion of the immigration issue. Compassionately, the plight of refugees needs to be prioritized over all other types of immigration. Realistically, the vetting of legitimate refugees is still required, given the violent turmoil in the world, the infiltration of the extremists into the refugee population and that threats directly at the United States.

Common sense says leave Title 42 in place.

from The Gray Area:
What is Title 42? Title 42 is a public health order that allows Customs and Border Protection to expel migrants to Mexico or back to their home countries to prevent the spread of the virus in holding facilities. The policy was created under the Trump administration and was issued by the CDC in March 2020, at the start of the pandemic. Exceptions to the policy include unaccompanied children, some families and some vulnerable individuals were exempted under the Biden Administration. When the policy was first created under the Trump administration, mostly everyone, including children, were turned away. The Biden Administration announced in April that they plan to rescind the policy on May 23. This issue is not rocket science, its politics. It's also common sense. This issue is clear. Leave Title 42 in place. More From USA Today:
