As border crossings increased in the second year of the pandemic, Republicans, Democrats and the Washington Post are all in agreement that shelving human rights concerns is the price of keeping unwanted refugees and migrants out of the U.S.
“President Biden should have ended this cruel and lawless policy long ago, and the court was correct to reject it today.”
