David Rhodes, Other AZ Sheriffs Brace for the End of Title 42
They are committed to protecting Arizona citizens as Title 42 comes to an end. That was the message three Arizona sheriffs had at a press conference in Phoenix Wednesday.
Yavapai County Sheriff David Rhodes said of Title 42, “This experiment, whatever it was, has failed us.”
Title 42 is a COVID-19 era policy that allowed the U.S. Border Patrol to turn away undocumented migrants. That policy ends Thursday at 9 p.m. Rhodes added he and his fellow sheriffs are working very hard to keep everyone safe, saying, "We got this. We’re not going to let this get into a full blown situation in your communities.”
Joining Rhodes in Wednesday’s press conference were Maricopa County Sheriff Paul Penzone and Pinal County Sheriff Mark Lamb.
