Nicaraguan migrant reacts to new changes on Title 42

SAN LUIS RIO COLORADO, Son. (KYMA, KECY) - After President Biden announced new changes on Title 42, migrants on the US-Mexico border in Yuma and San Luis say they're frustrated after the announcement this morning.

The changes are affecting thousands of migrants like Jose Salazar who has been in San Luis for more than a month trying to cross into the United States to seek asylum.

Salazar is from Nicaragua, one of the countries President Biden included in this latest change to Title 42.

Salazar says he's already tried to make it into our country.

"Being accepted in the United States is one of the main goal of Central Americans. I tried to cross once but I didn't know anything about Title 42," says Salazar.

Now, it could be even more difficult for Salazar to cross.

President Biden blames the Republicans for blocking a more comprehensive plan.

In the meantime, migrants affected by this new measure say they feel frustrated because the only thing they want to do is come to the United States to work and reunite with their families.

"I'm frustrated but at the same time I talk to my family and gives me strength," says Salazar.

Salazar is just one of many migrants in limbo once again as changes to title 42 continue.

The Supreme Court is expected to rule on Title 42 later this year.

The Biden Administration says this new action is not going to fix the immigration crisis but can help to manage what is a difficult challenge.
