As the deadline for Title 42 hovers over border states, President Joe Biden has approved sending 1,500 U.S. troops to the southern border.
Texas Gov. Greg Abbott says the move will do nothing to stop illegal immigration.
Title 42 was issued at the height of the COVID-19 pandemic and was designed to allow customs enforcement to send illegal aliens from “COVID-19 impacted” countries—such as Canada and Mexico—back to their country of origin without processing them.
However, Title 42 is set to expire May 11, with many border states and cities bracing for the worst.
