The Women’s Refugee Commission joined 36 immigrant, labor, and civil rights groups urging the Biden administration to “loudly and clearly” defend its plan to end pandemic-era border restrictions, known as Title 42. In a letter to President Joe Biden, the groups called on the administration to oppose legislation from Sens. James Lankford (R-Okla) and Kyrsten Sinema (D-Ariz) that would delay ending Title 42 without a detailed plan to address an anticipated surge of migrants at the border or similar proposals. They further requested an “urgent” meeting with Biden and his staff to discuss the Title 42 policy.
