Vulnerable Democrats buck Biden on Trump-era immigration fight

Sen. Mark Kelly (D-Ariz.) offered a stark warning to the administration as he visited the U.S.-Mexico border this week: Unless there are changes in policy, they could face a “humanitarian crisis.”


The administration’s decision to end the Trump-era Title 42 policy, which allows for the rapid expulsion of migrants at the border and blocks them from seeking asylum due to the pandemic, has opened up a high-profile rift between Biden and Democrats in races that will determine if they keep the Senate majority.


Those Senate fights will likely determine if Democrats hold their majority in the fall.
