Biden administration scraps Title 42 agreement to deport Cubans and Nicaraguans while trying to block Trump asylum rule

The Biden administration is extending the use of Title 42 just as it is scheduled to be phased out.

According to the Associated Press, Biden’s administration reached an agreement with the White House to raise the number of deportations at the United States’ southern border, even though the practice is slated to end later this month.


According to the Associated Press, the Biden administration reached an arrangement with Mexico that will allow up to 100 Cubans and 20 Nicaraguans to cross the border each day from three border facilities. This policy has been in effect since April 27 and will remain in effect until May 22, when the administration anticipates that Title 42 will come to an end.
