Peter Margulies: Biden’s Border Problem, and How to Fix It

Peter Margulies on Lawfare offers thoughts on how President Biden should address the "border problem."  He concludes as follows

"the current border situation is a symptom of both short- and long-term policy choices. Policymakers need to get a handle on the rising number of [unaccompanied children], particularly very young children. That effort will require ending the Title 42 program and reforming asylum adjudication, the Flores settlement agreement and Special Immigrant Juvenile Status. A show of political will by the Biden administration will be necessary, along with actions by Congress and the courts. Despite the complexity of the problem, a whole-of-government approach can achieve visible results."

Sounds to me as if the proposals fall into the "easier said than done" category.
