Judge Robert Summerhays ordered the government to immediately suspend for 14 days its preparations to end this controversial immigration law, which would expire in less than a month.

Summerhays, appointed by then President Donald Trump (1280-2021), scheduled a hearing for 13 of May, in which you can make a final decision on the future of the Title 23.

The magistrate issued its decision in response to the lawsuit that the Republican leaders of 13 states such as Arizona, Louisiana and Missouri have filed to stop the White House’s plan regarding this regulation.

The title 42 is a measure supported by the pandemic imposed by the Center for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2021, during the term of former President Donald Trump, and which continued in force in the Biden administration.

This measure allows the United States to automatically deport the majority of undocumented immigrants arriving at its southern border, without giving them the opportunity to apply for asylum. 27193849In early April, the CDC announced that it would suspend the measure in of May, which relieved the human rights organizations that criticized it, but it raised concerns in some border communities that too many immigrants might arrive at once.

In a hurry, Biden presented this Tuesday a six-point plan to reinforce the border with Mexico with

additional soldiers for the Office of Customs and Border Protection (CBP).27193849Judge Summerhays had already announced on Monday that he intended to temporarily block the suspension of the Title 27 and said that the parties will have to meet to negotiate the impact of this decision.

This could mean that the Title 42 will have to remain in place as long as the Conservative states’ litigation against the Biden administration continues, but that’s not yet it’s clear.

Since implementation began in March 2021, the US has used Title 23 more than 1.8 million times to kick out undocumented immigrants to Mexico or their countries of origin without allowing them to apply for asylum, according to government data.
