- Guatemalan President Alejandro Giammattei blamed President Biden’s decision to end Title 42 for unleashing a wave of migrants bound for the U.S.
- Biden’s decision to end Title 42, a public health order used to expel migrants to control the spread of COVID-19, was blocked by a lawsuit brought by Republican states. But Biden’s announcement already had set off a wave of migrants heading for the U.S.
- “We have recently seen a very serious increase in the number of migrants seeking to cross our border,” Giammattei said. “When Title 42 was eliminated, we see an even greater increase in the crossings through Guatemala, illegal crossings through Guatemala to reach the United States illegally as well.”
