Federal Judge Issues Temporary Restraining Order Preventing Biden From Lifting Title 42


2,820 views

A federal judge on Monday granted a temporary restraining order to prevent the Biden Regime from lifting Title 42, a Trump-era order blocking asylum seekers at the U.S. border.

President Trump used Title 42 in 2020 to expel migrants seeking asylum during the COVID-19 outbreak.

Biden wanted Title 42 lifted on May 23rd, but a federal judge prevented him from ending the Trump-era order.

U.S. District Judge for the Western District of Louisiana Robert Summerhays, a Trump appointee, granted the temporary restraining order.

Arizona, Louisiana, and Missouri filed a lawsuit earlier this month to stop Biden’s lifting of Title 42.

“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 said.

“Joe Biden’s reckless decision to rescind Title 42 would have flooded our already stressed southern border with illegal immigrants. Fortunately, today a judge has granted our request to halt this enormous threat to our national security,” Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry said.

The following states have joined the lawsuit:

Arizona, Louisiana, Missouri, Alabama, Alaska, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Idaho, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Utah, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

Roll Call reported:

The full contours of Summerhays’ forthcoming order are unclear. Attorneys for the states and for the federal government “will confer regarding the specific terms to be contained” in the court’s temporary restraining order “and attempt to reach agreement,” the court filing says.

Such a ruling likely is a bad sign for the Biden administration in a broader legal challenge to stop government plans to fully end Title 42 on May 23. More than 20 Republican-led states filed a lawsuit over those plans, and then sought this order when they learned the Biden administration began to scale back the use of Title 42 ahead of that date.
