WATCH: Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey Visits Southern Border Amidst Title 42 Controversy, Interviews With Fox News.
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Brevard County Sheriff Wayne Ivey visited the Southern Border on Monday as he helps learn more from Border Agents who are in the midst of a Border Crisis along the US-Mexican border.
Sheriff Ivey was joined by Sheriff Mark Daniels from Cochise County, Arizona; Sheriff Sam Page from Rockingham County, North Carolina; and Sheriff Jim Arnott from Greene County, Missouri.
The visit is a timely one as legislators and President Biden are seeking to let Title 42 expire.
However, a federal judge on Friday blocked the Biden administration from lifting a pandemic-related health order which was set expire on Monday.
Judge Robert Summerhays of the U.S. District Court in Lafayette, Louisiana, issued the preliminary injunction blocking the Biden administration from ending the restrictions, known as Title 42.
The CDC had planned to stop authorizing the border expulsions on Monday, May 23.
The goal of the order is to seal America’s borders from migrants during the COVID-19 pandemic, allowing the immediate expulsion of border-crossers, including asylum-seekers.
The Department of Homeland Security forecasted that as many as 18,000 migrants per day would try to cross if Title 42 were lifted.
Title 42 was enacted in March 2020 by President Trump to control the transmission of the coronavirus across the border.
Under Title 42, Customs and Border Patrol can immediately expel certain migrants to Mexico, rather than putting them through formal deportation proceedings.
In a 47-page ruling, Summerhays says the CDC should have allowed the public to comment on Title 42’s termination before finalizing it.
“Simply put, the CDC has not explained how the present circumstances prevented the CDC from issuing the Termination Order through the required notice and comment process,” Summerhays wrote.
If Summerhays’ ruling is upheld it will require the CDC to continue authorizing the border expulsions during the process.
Democrats in Washington have called for the end of Title 42 for months and has even received support from top Democrats such as Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.
Led by Arizona and Louisiana, 24 states in challenged the White House’s plans to end Title 42, arguing that the Biden administration “failed to consider the effects of a Title termination on immigration enforcement and the states.”
The Biden administration planned to end Title 42 on Monday, but Judge Robert Summerhays’ ruling Friday will keep the restrictions in place while the lawsuit makes its way through the court.
