Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas, urges President Biden to extend Title 42 as the White House faces backlash with the border policy set to end on ‘Your World.’
The Biden administration is considering plans to include Cubans, Nicaraguans and Haitians in a legal process available to Venezuelans seeking asylum in the U.S., according to reports.
The Wall Street Journal reported that according to internal government documents it viewed with two officials familiar with the plans, the program would allow migrants from those four countries to apply for asylum from abroad and fly to the U.S.

The program would give migrants leaving their native country as a political refugee protection in the U.S. It would also give migrants from those countries a pathway into the U.S., other than crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.
