Release Date: May 12, 2021

The following statement can be attributed to a Department of Homeland Security (DHS) spokesperson: 

“As the United States continue​s to enforce the CDC Order under its Title 42 public health authority, we are working to streamline a system for identifying and lawfully processing particularly vulnerable individuals who warrant humanitarian exceptions under the order.
