Tea Party Patriots Action Targets 5 Vulnerable Senate Democrats on Title 42 With New AlignAct Campaign
Atlanta, GA – Today, Tea Party Patriots Action (TPPA) launched an AlignAct campaign to mobilize its three million members to pressure five vulnerable Democrat Senators to do more than spout empty words about Title 42 and instead actually take action to keep Title 42 in place. The Biden Administration is ending Title 42 – the Trump-era policy allowing the quick expulsion of migrants at the southern border because of the pandemic. Without Title 42, illegal crossings will more than double to an estimated 18,000 per day. TPPA’s campaign is targeting Senators Mark Kelly of Arizona, Michael Bennet of Colorado, Raphael Warnock of Georgia, Maggie Hassan of New Hampshire, and Catherine Cortez Masto of Nevada. These Democrats have publicly opposed the Administration’s decision to repeal Title 42, but when these Senators were given the chance to vote to keep it, they voted the wrong way.

TPPA Honorary Chairman Jenny Beth Martin released the following statement:
“The Biden Administration’s decision to end Title 42 is madness. Just days after they said Title 42 was no longer needed because the pandemic is easing, they extended the mask requirement for public transportation. Even with a federal judge overturning the mandate, the Administration is threatening to appeal. The Administration is walking into a disaster by a repealing Title 42. Congress has the power to keep Title 42 in place but only if the Senate Democrats who publicly support keeping Title 42 use their legislative power. Words are meaningless without action. That’s why TPPA is mobilizing our grassroots activists to pressure five vulnerable Senate Democrats who publicly support keeping Title 42 but voted the wrong way when given the chance. We’re going to keep the pressure on until their actions match their words.”
