Here’s what it looks like at the US-Mexico border as Title 42 expires

As Title 42, a public health order that allowed the US government to rapidly expel migrants during the COVID-19 pandemic, has expired, many migrants have been trying to enter the US through the southern border. The end of Title 42 has been a long-awaited change for many migrants, as it has been criticized for being inhumane and discriminatory.

At the US-Mexico border, the end of Title 42 has brought both hope and uncertainty for migrants. While many are hoping to finally be able to seek asylum in the US after months of waiting in Mexico, others fear that the end of the policy could lead to overcrowding and an overwhelmed immigration system.

Images and videos from the border show large groups of migrants waiting to enter the US, with some camping out in makeshift shelters or sleeping in tents. Many have been waiting for months, if not years, to be able to enter the US and start their asylum process. The end of Title 42 has led to a surge in border crossings, with over 178,000 migrants apprehended in April alone.

US officials have said that they are prepared for the increase in migrants, but advocates for immigrant rights are concerned that the US government will not be able to handle the influx. The end of Title 42 has also raised concerns about the spread of COVID-19, as migrants are no longer being rapidly expelled from the US.

While the end of Title 42 is a positive development for many migrants who have been waiting to enter the US, it remains to be seen how the US government will handle the surge in border crossings and how it will address the challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic. For now, the US-Mexico border is a site of hope and uncertainty for migrants seeking a better life in the US.
