Deuteronomy 28:43-53 43 “Foreigners who live in your land will gain more and more power, while you gradually lose yours. 44 They will have money to lend you, but you will have none to lend them. In the end they will be your rulers. 45 “All these disasters will come on you, and they will be with you until you are destroyed, because you did not obey the Lord your God and keep all the laws that he gave you. 46 They will be the evidence of God’s judgment on you and your descendants forever. 47 The Lord blessed you in every way, but you would not serve him with glad and joyful hearts. 48 So then, you will serve the enemies that the Lord is going to send against you. You will be hungry, thirsty, and naked – in need of everything. The Lord will oppress you harshly until you are destroyed. 49 The Lord will bring against you a nation from the ends of the earth, a nation whose language you do not know. They will swoop down on you like an eagle. 50 They will be ruthless and show no mercy to anyone, young or old. 51 They will eat your livestock and your crops, and you will starve to death. They will not leave you any grain, wine, olive oil, cattle, or sheep; and you will die. 52 They will attack every town in the land that the Lord your God is giving you, and the high, fortified walls in which you trust will fall. 53 “When your enemies are besieging your towns, you will become so desperate for food that you will even eat the children that the Lord your God has given you.

Important Takeaways:

  • Explainer: What Happens When Biden Ends Title 42 at Border this Week
  • [First] What is Title 42?
  • In May 2020, less than a few months into the Chinese coronavirus pandemic, then-President Donald Trump invoked the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) Title 42 authority for the first time in American history to be used at the southern border.
  • Title 42, only previously used on foreign imports, gave Border Patrol agents another tool to quickly remove illegal aliens back to their native countries within hours after their arrival at the border for the sake of Americans’ public health.
  • The authority is akin to Title 8, the border control in U.S. law that gives the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) the ability to remove illegal aliens who are not eligible to remain in the U.S. after arriving at the border.
  • Since Trump imposed Title 42, the authority has ensured that close to three million illegal aliens have been quickly removed from the U.S. following their crossing the border.
  • What Happens After Title 42?
  • When Title 42 ends, an estimated 400,000 border crossers and illegal aliens are expected to arrive at the border every month — a foreign population that eclipses the resident population of cities like New Orleans, Louisiana; Tampa, Florida; Cleveland, Ohio; and Honolulu, Hawaii.
  • Currently, as many as 700,000 migrants are waiting to rush the border when Title 42 ends. Many will be released into American communities through a series of processes set up by Biden’s DHS.
  • What Do Americans Think?
  • In May 2022, as Biden sought to end Title 42, a Fox News poll found that 63 percent of voters wanted the president to keep the authority in place rather than removing it — including 77 percent of Republicans, 57 percent of swing voters, and 49 percent of Democrats.
  • The following month, an Axios poll found that Hispanic Americans, in particular, backed keeping Title 42 at the border. While 51 percent of Hispanics support Title 42, only 44 percent oppose the authority.
  • Hispanics who are the most assimilated to American life are the most likely to back Title 42, with 58 percent of second-generation Hispanics and 59 percent of third-generation Hispanics supporting the authority.
