BREAKING: Federal Judge Temporarily Blocks Biden from Ending Title 42

In an extraordinary move, a federal judge in Louisiana temporarily blocked the Biden Administration “from ending expulsions of illegal immigrants under Title 42 of the U.S. Code, less than a month before their planned end” reports National Review.

Trump appointee of the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Louisiana, Judge Robert Summerhays, gave the order announced in a single-page notice Monday. Summerhays currently presides over Louisiana v. CDC, a lawsuit brought against the Biden Administration by Louisiana, Arizona and Missouri over its plans to end Title 42 next month.

National Review reports of the ruling:

It is a temporary restraining order, designed to preserve the situation at the Southern Border until arguments for a more formal injunction may be considered. Per Rule 65 of Federal Rules of Civil Procedure, the order will expire within 14 days – i.e., May 9 – or a shorter timeframe set by Summerhays.

Drawn from the Public Health Service Act of 1944, Title 42 allows the U.S. to remove foreign nationals who are deemed to pose a risk to the “public health” of the United States. During the coronavirus pandemic, it was invoked by the Trump Administration in March of 2020 to summarily expel migrants who crossed the Southern Border illegally, often on the same day they arrived, without proceeding through the lengthy normal deportation process.

The Biden Administration, citing the pandemic, continued its use upon assuming office – though it added exemptions for unaccompanied children and vulnerable families. As of last week, per U.S. Customs and Border Protection, over 1.7 million illegal immigrants had been expelled from the U.S. under Title 42 provisions. In comments to NPR, Theresa Cardinal Brown of the Bipartisan Policy Center called Title 42 the “primary tool” of controlling illegal immigration along the Southern Border.

During a heated testimony, Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas expressed his support for amnesty and a path to citizenship for those who have entered the United States illegally.

Mayorkas tried to dodge at first, saying “only Congress can provide legal status or amnesty through the laws to those who enter the country illegally.” When prompted by Republican Congressman Andy Biggs of Arizona who said “we’re not talking about who passes laws or not, but your philosophy as the DHS Secretary, would you support amnesty?”

Mayorkas responded, “Congressman, I fully support and have for many years, legislative reform that once and for all fixes our broken immigration system…”

“So I take it that you won’t make that statement now…” said Biggs.

“No I will, if you’ll allow me” Mayorkas said, “and it involves a path to citizenship for those who have been in this country for many years, who have contributed to the wellbeing of our country.”

“The answer is you would support amnesty of some kind” Biggs said of his response.
