Rep. Johnson talks border crisis
This interview originally aired on In the Moment on SDPB Radio.
Title 42 is set to end this week. That policy shaped the U.S.'s response to the immigration crisis during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Republican Party is pushing forward a piece of legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives to replace Title 42. The Secure the Border Act is already being threatened with a veto from the White House.
Lori Walsh unpacks this issue with U.S. Rep. Dusty Johnson. They explore foreign policy, statutory caps for new immigrants, seeking asylum at the southern U.S. border and more.
