UNHCR reiterates its call for the immediate and full lifting of the Title 42 restrictions which have been in effect since March 2020 and continue to deny most people arriving at the southwest US land border any opportunity to request asylum.
The summary, mass expulsions of individuals currently under way under the Title 42 authority, without screening for protection needs, is inconsistent with international norms and may constitute refoulement.
UNHCR is deeply saddened by reports of deaths of individuals near the Belarus-Poland border.
Any decision and action that places the lives of asylum-seekers + migrants at risk must be avoided. Political disagreement on responsibilities should never result in the loss of lives.
