Judge orders Biden administration to stop expulsion of immigrant families using Trump-era Title 42 policy


A judge on Thursday ordered the Biden administration to stop evicting immigrant families with children under Washington-public health policy, which would allow immigrants to return to the United States, preventing the spread of Kovid-19 in holding facilities.

The order was issued by District Judge Emmet Sullivan of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia. The Sullivan verdict will take effect in 14 days.

In August, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention extended Title 42 indefinitely, saying, “It will remain in effect until CDC directors decide that the risk of further introducing Kovid-19 into the United States has posed a serious risk.” The mandate is no longer necessary to protect public health, and public health. “

Title 42 allows Customs and Border Protection officers to evict undocumented immigrants to prevent the spread of COVID-19 in holding facilities. Children and some families are exempt from the policy.

Sullivan’s ruling was a big win for immigrant rights organizations calling on the Biden administration to end the use of Title 42, which began under former President Donald Trump’s administration.

The American Civil Liberties Union and other immigrant rights organizations resumed the lawsuit filed under the Trump administration in August, challenging the Title 42 policy.
