Judge Blocks Use Of Trump’s Title 42 Edict To Expel Migrants

At a glance

  • U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan issued an order barring federal authorities from using Title 42, a Trump-era rule that allowed the U.S. to quickly expel migrants who crossed the border.
  • Sullivan said the edict, which allowed U.S. border officials to expel migrants on public health grounds, was not properly enacted.
  • Tuesday’s ruling stemmed from a lawsuit filed by the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), which has argued that Title 42 places migrants in harm’s way and violates U.S. asylum law.
