Democrats pressure Biden to back off Title 42 decision

Democrats on Capitol Hill, fearing a deluge of migrants at the southern border this summer, are pressuring President Biden to back off his decision to lift the Trump-era Title 42 order next month.


Democrats in tough races publicly criticized Biden’s decision earlier this month but now the pushback is growing to include the president’s moderate allies including Sens. Chris Coons (D-Del.) and Senate Homeland Security Committee Chairman Gary Peters (D-Mich.).
