A year ago, the Trump Administration invoked an obscure infectious disease provision in Title 42 of the US Code, allowing Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents to turn away migrants who show up at the border without giving them the opportunity to request asylum. When a CBP agent applies the Title 42 policy on a migrant, the migrant can only request Convention Against Torture (CAT) protection, which requires a much higher standard to approve compared to asylum requests. When the Trump Administration instituted this policy, many Congressional Democrats including now-Vice President Kamala Harris condemned it as inhumane, illegal under the Refugee Convention, and ineffective at preventing Covid spread.
Now when President Biden was sworn in, he ordered the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to conduct a review of whether the Title 42 policy should be rescinded. And the Biden administration has already stopped applying the policy to unaccompanied minors, whom they have allowed to request asylum. But for the time being the policy is still in effect. So my question is, which Congressional Democrats have called on President Biden to rescind the Title 42 policy?
