Hear Their Stories: Thousands of Migrants Seek Refuge in El Paso Amidst Title 42 Rulings
Title 42 was set to expire on December 21st, when the Supreme Court ruled to keep the policy in place indefinitely on December 27th, citing health concerns. The policy allows the U.S. government to expel asylum seekers under the premise of reducing the spread of COVID. In anticipation of the policy expiring, thousands of Central American migrants crossed into border towns like El Paso every day. Economic and humanitarian crises are currently plaguing several countries in South America, causing people to flee their home countries. CalTV's Mariana Garcia spoke with four Venezuelan migrants who recently crossed the border to hear about their 3,000 mile journey to the U.S. and what their hopes are for the future.
