White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki Wednesday didn’t quite deny reports that the White House is reconsidering revoking Title 42, which allowed the administration to deport illegal aliens to prevent the spread of Covid into the U.S. from Latin America.
The problem is that, once that is ended, the massive surge to the border already occurring will get even worse. And at least nine Senate Democrats are questioning the wisdom of revoking Title 42.
Psaki is asked if the White House is talking about reversing its decision. Note that she doesn’t quite say they are not. “Right now, we are planning and preparing for the end of Title 42 enforcement on May 23rd,” she said. Key words and terms: “Right now,” “planning,” and “preparing.” Not “we will” end it.
