More than 1,300 medical professionals demand Title 42 be repealed

Oct. 29 (UPI) -- More than 1,300 medical professionals have demanded the Biden administration end its policy to bar migrants and asylum seekers entrance to the United States amid the COVID-19 pandemic, saying it systematically endangers lives.

The 1,383 doctors, nurses and other health professionals nationwide signed a letter sent Thursday to Rochelle Walensky, director of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, demanding she end her department's Title 42 order as it "lacks epidemiological evidence" and has "no basis in public health best practice."
