Todd Bensman, a journalist and US intelligence officer who has been reporting on the border for two years and will be reporting live this week inside Mexico, just over the border town of McAllen, TX.
He will be talking about the ending of the Title 42 pandemic-era expulsion policy and live tweeting his experiences. As the author of the definitive book on the border crisis, "Overrun: How Joe Biden Unleashed the Greatest Border Crisis in U.S. History," He is available for interviews and can provide a reporting-based analysis that lays bare the crisis's causes, dimensions, and chaotic impacts. In "Overrun", The witnesses to this history, the immigrants at its core are the ones featured, not “experts,” politicians, and media pundits. This all centers around Title 42 as it is set to expire on Thursday, May 11. The end of the program, implemented under Trump at the start of the Covid-19 pandemic to prevent the spread of the disease, is expected to lead to a wave of asylum seekers and marks a significant challenge for the Biden Administration, which announced last week that it would deploy 1,500 troops for 90 days to the U.S.-Mexico border as the change takes effect.
