Three States Sue Biden Administration Over End of Title 42

Three Republican-led states are suing the Biden Administration… Louisiana, Missouri and Arizona are seeking to stop the administration from ending Trump-era pandemic restrictions that blocked migrants from entering the United States known as ‘Title 42’. This comes after the CDC announced Friday that it would be ending the restriction on May 23rd. The restrictions which were put in place at the beginning of the pandemic have been criticized by immigrant advocates, public health experts and even officials within the Trump Administration who believed it to be driven by political motivations. The plaintiffs claim the administration’s plans to roll back the policy are ‘arbitrary and capricious’ because the government didn’t follow the rules required to make such a change.
