Can you donate $10 today to keep us going strong? Every dollar makes a difference. Right now a generous donor will DOUBLE your donation, making it twice as valuable to Democracy Now! Please do your part today, and thank you so much.

U.S. to Continue Expelling Asylum Seekers After Judge Blocks Rescission of Title 42

HeadlineApr 26, 2022

A federal judge in Louisiana has temporarily blocked the Biden administration from ending Title 42, a Trump-era policy that’s allowed the U.S. government to expel asylum seekers at the U.S.-Mexico border without due process. The Biden administration planned to end Title 42 by next month, facing backlash from both Republicans and Democrats. Since Title 42 was first invoked in March 2020, over 1.7 million asylum seekers have been expelled from the U.S. and returned to places where they face kidnapping, torture, sexual assault or threats to their lives.
