U.S. Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas told Yahoo News Chief Investigative Correspondent Michael Isikoff that “it’s a heartbreaking thing to see” asylum seekers continuing to be turned away from the U.S.-Mexico border under the Trump-era Title 42 authority. During the discussion, which was originally broadcast as part of the Soufan Center’s 2021 Global Security Forum in Doha, Qatar, Mayorkas added that Title 42 “is not an immigration policy that we in this administration would embrace, but we view it as a public health imperative as the Centers for Disease Control has so ordered.”
