US Deports Over 11,000 Migrants Following The Expiry Of Title 42

8 Year Old Lost Her Life In Border Patrol Custody
An 8-year-old girl lost her life while she was in Border Patrol custody. Reports state border agents didn’t pay heed to the pleas of the girl’s family to admit her into a hospital since she had pre-existing medical conditions. Furthermore, medical personnel looked at Anadith Tanay Reyes nearly thrice the day she passed away. Plus, the authorities failed to arrange an ambulance for her to go to the hospital when she had a seizure and lost consciousness.
Needless to say, the death of the little girl has everyone concerned about the provision of appropriate healthcare services for those in US border patrol custody. Reports suggest there are a few problems in border facilities, including overcrowding and poor conditions.
The US Senate Blocks Biden’s Policy
The Biden administration’s 2022 public charge rule was blocked after the US Senate passed a resolution. Don’t forget the public charge rule prevents green card applicants from getting penalized for relying on government benefits.
The resolution calls for the reinstatement of the public charge policy introduced when Trump was in charge, which made obtaining a green card significantly challenging for low-income immigrants.
