(LibertySociety.com) – On March 12, Senators Cory Booker (D-NJ) and Bob Menendez (D-NJ) joined Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) in showing their disappointment in President Joe Biden’s decision about Title 42. The policy, enacted under former President Donald Trump, kept migrants coming from countries where COVID-19 or other infectious diseases rampaged from crossing the border into the US. Instead of eliminating the policy, like most measures put in place by the previous administration, Biden kept Title 42 and only made exceptions for unaccompanied minors.
Representative Jim Jordan (R-OH) stated ending the policy entirely would lead to chaos at the border.
Democrats wants to end Title 42 at the southern border.
It's one of our last lines of defense against illegal immigration.
If they nix the program now, expect immediate chaos.

The Democrat senators want to see Title 42 eradicated, giving migrants the opportunity to pour into the United States regardless of the impact on America. Given their harsh message to Biden, it’s apparent the president is having trouble retaining support from his own base.
In fact, Democrats seem to be distancing themselves from Biden heading into the midterm elections this November. Politicians from Pennsylvania noticeably skipped a January event featuring the POTUS as his poll ratings remain low across the country.
Not only is he continuing to lose support among voters at large, but it also appears popular legislators on the left are unhappy with some of his decisions.
