Miller Mayer immigration attorney Steve Yale-Loehr was quoted by the Ritz Herald in “CDC Immigration Order Lifted for Children, Should Expand for Adults.” He said the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) order is a good first step, but more needs to be done. “The Title 42 order has been heavily criticized, and properly so. Immigrant advocates claim that the public health order has put migrants in harm’s way by forcing them to remain in Mexico. For example, on June 30, over 100 groups urged the Biden administration to fully rescind Title 42 expulsions. Unaccompanied noncitizen children had been temporarily exempted from the Title 42 order. Today’s announcement makes that exemption official, based on the CDC’s assessment that it can properly assess the risk of COVID-19 transmission among children and provide vaccinations to children ages 12 and over. The CDC should go further by rescinding its Title 42 order for everyone. There is no valid public health rationale for expelling people fleeing persecution, when millions of other people enter the United States on visas every year.”
