WASHINGTON, D.C. – Oklahoma officials said Title 42 – the Trump-era public health order that tightened border restrictions to mitigate COVID-19 – is necessary to secure the southern border and to stop the unfettered flow of migrants.
“We joined a coalition of 21 states in a lawsuit against the Biden administration, which in our estimation has totally failed the American people when it comes to immigration policy and border control,” Oklahoma Attorney General John O’Connor told Fox News of the state’s effort to keep Title 42 in place.
The article goes on to state the following:
Title 42, which was implemented in March 2020, has been used by both the Trump and Biden administrations to quickly expel migrants at the southern border due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention announced in early April that it would terminate Title 42 on May 23, stating that the order was “no longer necessary” because of “an increased availability of tools to fight COVID-19.”
Oklahoma Gov. Kevin Stitt told Fox News, “This is about securing our southern borders. If we take the border officers’ ability to enforce and be able to keep people in Mexico, we basically have no borders in the southern part of our state.”
He continued, “We have to have a strong border, and so we’re pushing this administration to just stop playing politics. If you don’t have borders, you really don’t have a country.”
O’Connor told the outlet, “Oklahoma is next to Texas but every state is impacted by the free and unfettered inflow to our country of illegal immigrants.”
“We see a high concentration in Oklahoma of drugs that come in from Mexico, we see the influence of the cartels. So this is not a Texas problem, it’s not a border problem, it’s an American problem for all 50 states,” he added.
O’Connor tweeted Tuesday, “President Biden has failed to fix the immigration crisis at the southern border. AG O’Connor will continue to hold the Biden administration accountable for their careless immigration policies that jeopardize communities across Oklahoma.”
