A federal judge temporarily blocked President Biden from ending Title 42, the pandemic health provision that has resulted in hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants being placed back into Mexico but which is scheduled to end May 23.
According to the Washington Examiner:
The move delays what Homeland Security officials predicted would prompt an unprecedented rush of migrants to the U.S.-Mexico border and is a major win for the three Republican states that brought the lawsuit in early April, which 18 other states have since joined.
“In a lawsuit originally filed by Missouri, Louisiana, and Arizona, our Office just obtained a temporary restraining order to keep Title 42 in place. This is a huge victory for border security, but the fight continues on,” Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt wrote in a post on Twitter Monday afternoon.
