    Amid the impending expiration of Title 42, a policy implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic that bars entry of migrants into the United States, CBS8 reports an influx of migrants, including those from Africa, who are seeking asylum at the border. These migrants reportedly do not feel safe in Mexico or in their home countries in Africa due to racism, discrimination, and violence. Immigration advocates say that the migrants are hopeful that they will be granted asylum in the United States, but there is no guarantee that they will be approved. Asylum seekers typically have a complicated legal process to go through, which includes proving that they are fleeing persecution or danger in their home country. While advocates say that the expiration of Title 42 could be a positive step towards giving these migrants a better chance at asylum, opponents argue that it could also lead to an increase in COVID-19 cases in the United States. The situation remains complex, and it is unclear how the Biden administration will proceed with immigration policies in the coming months. However, this recent influx of migrants highlights the ongoing need for reform in the United States’ immigration system to provide fair and just treatment to those seeking asylum.
