HHS Records Released in Response to Request for Communications with White House Regarding Title 42

Records released by the Department of Health and Human Services in response to American Oversight’s request and litigation for communications between specific Trump appointees and the Trump White House regarding the expulsion of migrants under the Public Health Safety Act Title 42, which was invoked by President Donald Trump in response to the coronavirus pandemic. Title 42 has enabled border patrol officers to expel migrants who cannot present valid entry documents at the Southern border without providing them the opportunity to seek asylum.
