During an interview with NPR that aired on Friday’s “Morning Edition,” Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto (D-NV) said there are certain things the Biden administration is doing on immigration. which “are too harsh that do not help us solve this problem”, and criticized the proposals for a ban on transit and family detention.

Host Steve Inskeep asked, [relevant exchange begins around 4:20] “It looks like Title 42 will expire, regardless, in May. And the administration reportedly talked about other measures it could use — tough measures in some cases — to deter people from crossing, things like family detention, for example. Would you be in favor of more severe measures instead of title 42 to limit the flow? »

Cortez Masto replied, “No. And I also said this to the administration, in terms of family detention, it was wrong under Trump and it’s wrong now. There was a proposal for a transit ban, for me, again, a bad proposal. It’s a – it’s a piecemeal solution to a broken immigration system. So the [are] things they do that are too harsh and don’t help us solve this problem, when really, we could get together and figure out the right way to do it.
