“A federal judge of the D.C. District Court has struck down the use of Title 42 to expel migrants in the case Huisha-Huisha v. Mayorkas. Upon request from the Biden administration, Judge Emmet Sullivan also granted a five-week period before the implementation of the order, which will take effect on December 21. Title 42, a measure that is part of a broader 1944 law called the Public Health Services Act, allowed the Department of Homeland Security to reject and expel migrants at the border to stem the spread of disease. It was resurrected under the Trump administration amid the early stages of the COVID-19 pandemic, and has expelled over one million migrants. … Despite Biden’s promises to end Trump’s harmful immigration policies, the administration continued to expel migrants using Title 42.” (11/22/22)
