Eliminate rule that expelled unaccompanied migrant minors from the US

The Centers for Disease Control (CDC) of the United States completely eliminated the controversy norm imposed during the Government of donald trump (2017-2021) that expelled minors migrants no accompanied who arrived at the border.

The current government headed by Joe Biden no longer applied this rule with respect to migrant minors, yes, it continues to expel adults, but a judicial resolution was going to force the Management to reapply it from midnight this Friday if it is not modified the rule.

Thus, just before the limit was reached, the CDC issued a statement informing them of the elimination of the norm regarding unaccompanied migrant minors.

The reason why this standard, known as title 42, was issued by a health agency like the CDC is that it was justified as an extraordinary measure to protect Americans during the pandemic of COVID-19, considering that immigrants arriving at the border could be carriers of the virus.

Title 42 is in effect from the beginning of the pandemic in March 2020.

After learning of the decision, a group of senators democrats issued a statement in which they said they felt “deeply disappointed” by the Administration’s decision Biden to keep in force the title 42although they admitted that avoiding the expulsion of unaccompanied children was “the right decision”.

The statement was signed by the leader of the Democratic majority in the Senate, Chuck Schumerand Senators Cory Booker, Álex Padilla and Bob Menéndez.
