Obama’s DHS Secretary Didn’t Sugarcoat The Poor Timing Of Biden’s Latest Border Decision

Former President Barack Obama’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Jeh Johnson said he wouldn’t have ended Title 42 during a time when migration typically speeds up.

The Trump-era public health policy responsible for over 1.7 million migrant expulsions will end May 23, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced April 1.

The policy should end around July, when migration tends to slow down with the hot summer weather, Johnson said in an interview Sunday with Face The Nation.

“I would’ve argued that we should keep in place just a little while longer, until perhaps July, when these numbers do tend to slow down in the hotter weather … ” Johnson said.

The order had to come to an end “some time” as courts have increasingly questioned the policy, Johnson added.

The White House says its preparing contingencies for an expected border surge come May 23.

Border authorities are also preparing to see nearly 8,000 border crossings a day when Title 42 ends. Asylum seekers will now be processed under Title 8, which the Border Patrol union chief recently told the Daily Caller News Foundation essentially means that migrants will be released into the interior of the country.
