As the crisis along the southern border rages on into the summer, the number of illegal border crossers entering the country with COVID-19 continues to increase. The Rio Grande Valley Sector alone has experienced a 900% increase in confirmed positive cases in the first two weeks of July compared to the previous 14 months. Despite all this, the Biden administration is considering putting an end to Title 42—a public health order put in place by the Trump administration that required U.S. border officials to remove illegal border crossers to prevent the spread of COVID-19. Join TPPF CEO Kevin Roberts as he hosts U.S. Congresswoman Yvette Herrell, who represents New Mexico’s 2nd district. They’ll discuss the ongoing crisis at the southern border, and what conservative lawmakers are doing to stop the Biden administration from making it even worse.
- Kevin Roberts, Ph.D. (Moderator) – Chief Executive Officer, Texas Public Policy Foundation
- The Honorable Yvette Herrell (Guest) – U.S. Congresswoman (NM-2)
