Immigrant groups fault Biden for slow-walking reversal of Trump’s border policies

As record levels of migrant children, families and adults continue to come to the U.S.-Mexico border, the Biden administration has used Title 42 to turn away the majority of migrants. In June, border agents encountered a yearly high of migrants at 188,829.

Although some families cannot be expelled under Title 42, the Department of Homeland Security last week reinstated a policy that allows immigration authorities to remove migrant families without a hearing. The families who have gone through the expedited removal process could not be expelled under Title 42 but “do not have a legal basis to stay in the United States.” The first flights deporting those families began Friday.
