Statement “America’s moms are relieved that the Biden administration is putting an end to the use – or misuse – of Title 42, a policy started by the Trump administration to deny asylum-seekers a chance to seek safety in the United States.

Moms would like to see it ended today, rather than waiting till May 23.
