The Biden administration is manufacturing another border crisis
Background: In April, Biden is set to meet with Mexico about stopping expulsions under Title 42. Title 42 is a Trump-era pandemic policy that allowed the Border Patrol to turn away most illegal immigrants because of COVID-19.
Mass migration event: The Biden administration is reportedly concerned that removing Trump’s policy will lead to a “mass migration event” but want to remove the policy because they believe it hurts migrants seeking asylum.
- There are 25,000 migrants just south of the border waiting to rush into the US.
- Trump’s Title 42 allowed Border patrol to expel migrants 1.6 million times.
The cartel: The DHS is concerned that Mexican cartels will attempt to rush in as many people as possible. The incoming repeal is a business opportunity for cartels to push through more migrants—they charge migrants for passage into the United States.
Big picture: The Biden administration knows repealing Title 42 will bring a wave of illegal migrants but still plans to do so. It is unclear how they will mitigate the consequences.

CDC’s recent error is part of a recurring trend
The error: All-time pandemic pediatric deaths from the CDC’s data tracker dropped almost 24% after the agency fixed a “coding logic error.” The media used the misleading data to push a new narrative that children face increased risks from the virus.
“Children seem to be facing increasing risks from Covid-19 even as mask mandates drop across the country, and vaccination rates among children stall out at alarmingly low rates.” The Guardian, March 11, 2022
This mistake is part of a recurring trend for the CDC.
Keeping information from the public: In February, the New York Times reported that the CDC only published a small amount of data about vaccines and hospitalizations. They reasoned that the information could have been misinterpreted and abused by those against vaccine mandates. Essentially, they kept data from the public to protect their pro-mandate narrative.
Using inaccurate data to push child masking: The CDC took an aggressive stance recommending that all kids two and older should be masked in school. To justify their position, the agency cited a study that was published two days earlier. It turned out that the study they used was “profoundly misleading” and did not support their actions.
Poll: 43% of independents believe the CDC made the last two years worse, while 39% thought it made things better.
