Rep. Yvette Herrell to Newsmax: New Legislation Aims to Reinstate Title 42

New Mexico Rep. Yvette Herrell announced on Newsmax that her office had drafted new legislation called the SHIELD Act that would reinstate Title 42 to its “fullest” capacity. Herrell introduced her bill, the “Securing the Homeland from International Entrants with Life-threatening Diseases Act,” into the House as a companion bill to the Senate version.

According to Herrell’s website, the legislation would “preserve America’s ability to protect its borders from a surge of COVID-19 cases.”

Appearing on “Spicer & Co.,” Herrell says, “just a rough estimate that’s pretty conservative is 170 to 180,000 family units [have been] released into the interior of our country that have not been tested for COVID… [The bill] would keep Title 42 in its fullest form in play for at least one year after the bill is passed.”
