Human Rights Stain, Public Health Farce: Title 42 Tied to 13K Murders, Rapes, Kidnappings in Mexico



The Biden administration has asked the Supreme Court to temporarily keep in place Title 42 until after December 27. The Trump-era pandemic policy has been used to block over 2 million migrants from seeking asylum in the country. Meanwhile, Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts on Monday temporarily blocked the Biden administration from ending Title 42, siding, at least for the moment, with a group of U.S. states with Republican attorneys general who want to keep Title 42 in place. According to Human Rights First, over 13,400 accounts of murder, torture, kidnapping, rape and other violent attacks on migrants and asylum seekers blocked in or expelled to Mexico under Title 42 have been reported since President Biden took office.

We also speak with Miguel Tinker Salas about a recent thaw in U.S.-Venezuela relations, and how that affects immigration.

  1. WHO IN THE WORLD THINKS AMERICA CAN SURVIVE ALL THE MIGRANTS FROM ALL OVER THE WORLD …WE NEED TO SUSPEND ALL IMMIGRATION UNTIL WE CAN GET A HANDLE ON THE BORDER ,THE WALL, AND CRIMINALS ENTERING ILLEGALLY..IMO
    GOD BLESS AMERICA
    FINISH BUILDING THE WALL OR WE WONT HAVE A COUNTRY

  2. Can Americans seek asylum from the Venezuelan illegals burdening our financial futures? Since they are leaving their own country. Can Americans rebuild it and can they (Venezuelans) not come back to the country they abandoned?

  3. "Democracy Now?!" No thank you. I'm in a minority that I don't want the majority to take away my rights and property.
    "Democracy is two wolves and a sheep deciding what's for lunch." America is a Constitutional Republic but you Bolsheviks push, push, push international socialism. 🤔

  4. So, human rights? Before helping others outside of the United States 🇺🇸 help those inside first a lot of people out of work and homeless and a lot of U.S cities looking like third world countries with this crisis were having in the U.S we should send a message don't come by deporting them as soon they come in illegally

  5. If illegal immigrants and refugees break down door and robbing people houses what else they are capable

  6. I guess we should all leave our doors open and let anyone who wants to live in our house move in. American Government should tend to America's business and stop creating situations in these outside countries that make people feel justified coming here illegally

  7. Title 42, which allows for removal of recent illegal aliens based on their country's communicable disease level, is as useful as every other law already in place to remove the unlawfully entered foreigners. Laws only matter to those who obey them.

  8. Biden caused the border crises. He promised asylum, and the Biden administration is advertising asylum in Haiti, and South America.

  9. The reason all the migrants are here is because Biden said he would allow them to be here through amnesty. All the violence is because of the Biden administration.

  10. Let them all in. We democrats needed all the votes we can get. If we let 10 millions in, they will vote for us and we will control all 3 branches of government FOREVER! This is a blessing for us.

  11. I think if I was being raped and molested and tortured I would go back home to my country that I am originally from as I only speak English my ex-husband could speak three different languages but I can't so I stay in America send them home so they don't get tortured this is a bunch of Lies the drug cartel are sending people in to Texas that are doing this to these people send them home where they won't get raped and molested

  12. STOP!!!! ILLEGAL EMIGRATION! DISTROY OUR CHILDREN FUTURE AND STILL OUR LEGAL
    RIGHTS, TAKING ALL OUR BENEFITS! COUNTRIES, THEY WERE BORN SHOULD TAKE CARE OF THEM. LEGAL EMIGTRATION BELONG TO HUMAN RIGHTS, THE ILLEGAL EMIGRATION IS…….. ILLEGAL!LEGALS CAN BE VERIFIED THE ILLEGALS??? COULD BE THE MOST WANTED CRIMINALS! BECAUSE THEY CAN'T BE VERIFIED WHO THEY ARE, WHY AMERICAN HARD VORKING CITIZENS, TAKE THE RISK FOR THEMSELFS AND THEIR CHILDREN!!!!!!!!

  13. Every country in the world has a right to enforce its borders, and most of them do. I don’t really understand the entitlement for demanding to immigrate to the the US. My family overseas can’t even get a Visa to visit, but they don’t feel entitled to it. How fair is it to the other immigrants & refugees who go through the legal process and wait years to come?

  14. As soon as they said where they were from ( New York/)(Chicago), I already knew what the whole interview was going to sound like and be. Just a bunch of liberal dumb B.S. I live in El Paso, Democrat people’s critical thinking skills are non-existent or severely ignorant about what the citizens of the U.S. believe what this country is supposed to be.

  15. that WALL WILL BE BROUGHT DOWN it will not stand ….. we got a big country to protect ppl I suggest we all start marching down there to take that wall down before this country really is ruined. that wall is an abomination of humanity.

  16. Who is paying for their trip from South America? Are these people required to take the JAB before entering? Who wants to offer justification for letting American citizens – some who are veterans – live in tents in our country while letting these people in BEFORE resolving that problem! The solution in many instances is to force them to move out of the site of tourists. Other states have passed laws to make it illegal to sleep on state land. None of these are solutions! How ludicrous for the large cities across this country to express the desire to become sanctuary cities while NOT addressing the homelessness of American citizens. People need to 'woke' up and take care of our own FIRST!

  17. Letting them in to work under the table not paying taxes. Wemon and children get housing receiving all benefits. Then the Illegal men join them living for free off taxpayers money 💰. Playing Government and citizens for fools.

  18. SO IF THESE COUNTRIES ARE REALLY THIS BAD . THE UNITED NATIONS NEED TO HANDLE THESE COUNTRIES. WITH MILITARY 🪖 ACTION. INCLUDING MEXICO.

  19. If what is claimed on Democracy Now! were true, people would be risking their lives and breaking the law to escape this country. Know these people for what they are.

  20. Wyh doesn’t The U.S. put more pressure on Mexico to stop Allowing illegals from entering Mexico. Instead of ushering and helping them to get to the U.S. Border. Better still replace your idiot government who opened up the border , stopped the building of the wall. What the hell is wrong with Democrats.

  21. What happens to the migrants is neither our fault nor is it our responsibility. It's their fault for assuming entry into a sovereign nation that has laws against such things. They made the choice – not us.

  22. It is indeed horrible what is happening to those migrants that are being denied entry but the law is the law. It's not abnormal nor is it cruel. It's standard policy worldwide for governments to protect their borders and control the flow of immigrants.
    We don't owe them anything and if we don't protect our borders and control the flow of immigrants by choosing only the best of the best we are doing a gross disservice to all Americans. It will be unsustainable and the impact will be a travesty.

  23. The United States Government refuses to help the millions of people in this country yet they want to bring a million migrants in this country and house and feed them. There are over a million homeless and hungry Americans who need help in this country. Why won't this government help Americans, and why won't the news media cover the story of homeless Americans?
