Due to the Biden administration’s lifting of Title 42, the United States is now starting down the barrel of a very real border crisis.
Title 42 was a regulation established under the Trump administration during the initial stages of the Wuhan virus pandemic outbreak, that granted public health officials the power to quickly kick out foreign nationals without giving them the opportunity to seek asylum.
Thanks to this regulation, the US government was able to kick out many migrants and protect American workers from further labor displacement. However, the Biden administration is looking to reverse all of this progress.
This is part of a broader open borders agenda that the administration is pursuing. Colorado Congresswoman Lauren Boebert wants none of this. During a speech before Congress on April 12, she sounded off against the Biden administration’s immigration policies.
She proclaimed, “More than two million illegal aliens have been apprehended at our southern border since Joe Biden took office, and Border Patrol agents estimate another 70% of these illegal immigrants have not been apprehended. They call them gotaways”

She added that “nearly 3.5 million illegal aliens have come across our border on Biden’s watch.”
Boebert described the Biden administration’s lifting of Title 42 as “An attack on the safety and security of the American people.”
Clearly, the Biden administration is not interested in border security. It would be a mistake to believe that its policies are the product of sheer incompetence. Democrats understand the electoral implications of mass migration. Uncontrolled migration is their one-way ticket to electoral hegemony.
To be sure, such policies will hurt Democrats in the short-term, as voters grow terrified by watching the southern border get overrun by illegal aliens. However, in the long-term, Democrats will be licking their chops at the prospect of tapping into a new voter base.
Liberty conservatives are the only group capable of stopping this, and the best way to do so is by implementing an immigration moratorium.
