Over 20 States Ask Judge to Block Biden Administration from Ending Title 42

Yesterday, more than 20 states signed a filing, asking a Federal Judge in Louisiana to block the Biden Administration from ending ‘Title 42’. The law which allows border authorities to turn away migrants at the U.S. border is expected to end on May 23rd but earlier this month Arizona, Louisiana and Missouri filed a lawsuit against the Biden Administration’s decision to end that law. In a filing yesterday, the states asked the court to intervene and argued that the administration had begun to process migrants under immigration law instead of through Title 42 and that the states are likely to prevail on the merits of their claims. A judge asked the Biden administration to respond by 1 p.m. today.
