His decision to drop the Trump Title 42 border policy seems to have blown up on him politically and put Bidden on notice that catering to the Progressives is gonna cost him support from within his own party in the Senate….
Joe Biden has NOT got the message….
He NEEDS to stop playing to the Progressive /Left in his party…..
It’s gonna sink his party members and maybe his job…..
Five Democratic and six Republican senators will introduce a new billon Thursday that would prevent the Biden administration from lifting Title 42 without a detailed plan in place to stop an expected surge of migrants at the border.
Why it matters: The administration’s plans to end the Trump-era COVID-19 immigration ban by May 23 were immediately met with scathing criticism from lawmakers in both parties. They fear the announcement will trigger a mass migration event.
- Vulnerable Democrats also worry it will create a political firestorm, and provide Republicans with fresh ammunition just months before the midterms.
Sen. Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz.), who drafted the proposal in conjunction with Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.), told Axios she met with Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas last week and again on Wednesday morning.
- “It is evident that the current preparations and plans for the end of Title 42 aren’t adequate,” she said.
- “It seems highly unlikely it will be adequate by May 23, because of poor logistics,” Sinema said.
- A White House official told Axios: “On the president’s first day in office, he sent an immigration bill to Congress that invests in smart solutions, effectively manages the border and addresses the root causes of migration. Those that are concerned about [the U.S.] immigration system that [are] holding up COVID funding should pass it.”
Driving the news: The “Public Health and Border Security Act of 2022” will be introduced by Sinema and Lankford — chairwoman and ranking member of the Senate’s Border Management subcommittee, respectively — on the Senate floor on Thursday.
- Its Democratic co-sponsors: Sens. Mark Kelly of Arizona and Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire — both of whom face tough re-election fights in November. Other signers include Sens. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) and Jon Tester (D-Mont.)….
