The Centers For Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) announced on Friday that Title 42, a restriction on immigration imposed by former President Donald Trump, ostensibly to prevent Covid-19 entering the US via the Mexican border, will expire in May. Homeland Security officials are anticipating as many as 18,000 migrants to try and enter the US every day after the restriction ends.


According to the Department of Homeland Security, as many as 18,000 migrants per day, or more than six million per year, may enter the US once Title 42 is lifted. The agency is preparing buses and planes to distribute these migrants around the US, and setting up temporary processing facilities at the border to handle the influx, an ABC News report on Wednesday stated.
