Federal Judge Blocks Biden from Lifting Trump-Era Title 42 Border Policy

HeadlineMay 23, 2022

A federal judge in Louisiana has blocked the Biden administration from lifting Title 42, a Trump-era policy which allows the U.S. to expel recently arrived migrants without due process. Biden had vowed to end Title 42 by today, May 23. But the judge — who was appointed by Donald Trump — said Title 42 must remain in place until a lawsuit filed by two dozen states is resolved. The public health order has been used to block over 2 million people arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border from seeking asylum — a violation of international law.
