Just days before the controversial Title 42 restriction imposed by former U.S. President Donald Trump in March 2020 allowing Customs and Border Patrol (CBP) agents to turn away migrants with the goal of preventing the spread of covid-19 was due to expire on Monday, May 23, a federal judge in Lafayette, Louisiana, late Friday, May 20,  blocked the Joe Biden administration from lifting the health ordinance.

In his ruling, Summerhays stated that the Biden administration had violated “administrative procedure laws,” adding that the suspension of Title 42 would cause “irreparable harm” and financial strains on health care, law enforcement, education and other services for migrants.

Under Biden, illegal immigration into the United States from across the Mexican border has spiraled into chaos, with more than 250,000 undocumented migrants entering the country in March, the highest monthly volume ever recorded.
