Revealed: US citizen newborns sent to Mexico under Trump-era border ban 

Tanvi Misra, The Guardian (February 05, 2021) 

A joint investigation by the Fuller Project and the Guardian has found that at least 11 immigrant women who gave birth in the United States were sent to Mexican border towns without U.S. birth certificates for their newborn children. The Trump administration hailed these rapid expulsions of immigrants under Title 42 as “tremendously effective,” and almost 200,000 have occurred in the first 2021 fiscal year alone. While promising to review Title 42, the Biden administration has been lax in doing so thus far.
