NSA Survey: Americans Overwhelmingly Back Commonsense Measures For Title 42 Migrant Relocation

With the Biden Administration’s recent decision to repeal the Title 42 border restrictions on May 23, 2022, which had returned illegal immigrants to their home country during the COVID-19 pandemic, there will essentially be no national border security between Mexico and Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and California.

Americans are firmly united on specific aspects of how the administration should resettle migrants if and when Title 42 is repealed. Americans overwhelmingly subscribe to commonsense measures:

  • 80% want criminal vetting and health screening of migrants
  • 61% want local government approval before resettlement
  • 75% agree that the federal government must inform local officials before resettlement

These are the key findings of a national TIPP Poll of 1,305 adults for the National Sheriffs’ Association (NSA). The online survey was conducted between April 6-and 8.

Today there are tens of thousands of immigrants headed to the US border. Title 42 is one of our most effective health and immigration policies at a time when America’s southern border has never been more dangerous.
