Sec. Blinken on Biden Admin Rescinding Title 42: We Followed the Science
BLINKEN: "Well, Dana, first, when it comes to Title 42, all along, we have been following the science. That's what this is about. So, when the CDC and others conclude that the science doesn't — doesn't warrant that, as is now happening, then we will take action. Here's my focus and the Vice President's focus as well. We're focused on making sure that people throughout our hemisphere have opportunities at home going forward, so they're not faced with this really hard choice of leaving everything behind and trying to come to the United States. So, building that kind of opportunity, creating what one of my colleagues has called a right to remain, is our focus. In the nearer term, the focus I have is trying to make sure that transit countries in particular take steps to make sure that the folks who might come or try to come to the United States through their countries can't do that. So, that's what I'm focused on."
