Senator Joe Manchin is causing more problems for the Biden administration by opposing the upcoming end to Title 42. The West Virginia Sen. is urging the Biden administration to reconsider stopping the Trump-era health order after multiple outlets reported the policy is set to end as early as May 23.

The Hill reports:

“Oh my goodness. Just watch the news y’all put out every day, what’s coming across,” Machin said.

Manchin had previously expressed his opposition to lifting Title 42 — making him one of just a handful of Democrats to do so as President Biden largely faces pressure from within his party to scrap what many see as an illegal and inhumane policy.

“With encounters along our southern border surging and the highly-transmissible Omicron BA.2 subvariant emerging as the dominate strain in the United States, now is not the time to throw caution to the wind,” Manchin wrote in a Tuesday letter to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) Director Rochelle Walensky.

“I urge you to again renew this commonsense policy that has been in effect—under both Republican and Democratic Administrations—since March 2020.”

The letter urged Dr, Walensky to extend the policy after the CDC said it would review the policy through March 30th.

    1. You would even though he is flip floping on his big stance against the build back better or he is going to vote yes on that racist, black so called judge who seems to like those that pick (putting it nicely) on children. The only reason I can think of his so called being against removing it is…….that they have not offered him anything he wants which is the way he does things. What is best for joe not WV or the nation.

      1. Joe Biden and most Democrats are a disgrace to this country. The Lifting of TITLE 42 amounts to treason. I am a legal immigrant, and I am not white or racist. “All Illegal immigrants should be deported today”.

    2. Which Joe ? Manchin orDementia ? Manchin should change parties like his Governor and
      most W. Va.voters did !! That should rattle Schmuky Chuckie !!

  1. Biden is an absolute disgrace!!!!! Take them all to Delaware or to the White House so he
    can have a hands on !!! Mid terms need to hurry while we still have a country. Every day
    its some other insane Idea surfacing with this guy.

  2. All Biden cares about is more undocumented Democrat voters and the potential to steal more elections.

  3. Might as well he is getting us into ww3 question is how many countries will support us very few if any afghanistan, And Ukrainian not many countries think we can do anything right . They will not jeopardize there countries for an Idiot
