The Washington Post’s Nick Miroff has a scoop, everybody. We think his idea was that the scoop is that the Biden administration is considering an end to Title 42, a coronavirus public health order used to expel migrants, which is reassessed by the CDC every 60 days, with the deadline for the next renewal landing in early April. What’s a scoop to us is that migrants are no longer kept in cages but in “holding cells,” which are over capacity. We’ve yet to see Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez don all-white for a photoshoot outside these holding cells, and Vice President Kamala Harris has yet to visit the border.

Before we get to Miroff’s tweet, though, let’s go back a week:

The Daily Mail reported:

The Department of Homeland Security is considering calling on volunteers for reinforcement at the southern border, fearing an onslaught of migrants that would far outweigh its resources.

The U.S. could be just hours away from another wave of mass migration if the Biden administration lifts Title 42, a provision border agents have relied on to quell the border crisis during the pandemic.

DHS Deputy Secretary John Tien asked employees “to consider stepping forward to support the DHS Volunteer Force,” according to an email, more than a year after the volunteer force was activated for last year’s migrant surge.

And now onto the scoop:


That upcoming book that reveals the dirt on Harris notes how she resented being referred to as the “border czar.” Politico Playbook reports:

The authors recounted a meeting with Congressional Black Caucus leaders in mid-April, in which Biden heaped praise on Harris but also said he’d given her the important task of handling immigration and that she would do “a hell of a job.”

“The vice president corrected him at once,” the authors report. “Excuse me, she said, it’s the Northern Triangle — not immigration.”

It’s clear that no one is in charge of immigration.
