The CDC’s Title 42 order fuels racism and undermines public health

America’s top physician, Dr. Anthony Fauci, had a message for Republican officials who scapegoat immigrants for coronavirus spread: “Let’s face reality here."  “The problem is within our own country,” Fauci explained in a recent interview on CNN. “Focusing on immigrants, expelling them... is not the solution to an outbreak.”

Dr. Fauci is not alone. Many public health experts like ourselves are alarmed that the tools of our trade are being weaponized against the most vulnerable among us. 

To this day, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) continues to back a pseudoscientific and discriminatory policy that the Biden administration uses to carry out mass expulsions of asylum seekers, such as the appalling recent scenes from Del Rio, Texas.
