A judge with the Western District of Louisiana Court temporarily blocked the Biden administration from ending title 42 on May 23. The courts upheld Title 42 on March 4. The Biden Administration’s CDC officially scrapped it on March 12. Both Republicans and some Democrats are concerned that lifting it would bring a flood of illegal immigrants into the United States. A hearing is set for May 13, which will determine whether Title 42 can be lifted on May 23.
UPDATE: Judge Summerhays increased his injunction against the lifting of Title 42, siding with the petitioning states on Friday, May 20, 2022.

BREAKING NEWS: 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.— Attorney General Eric Schmitt (@AGEricSchmitt) April 25, 2022
Court temporarily blocked lifting of Title 42
After Arizona, Louisiana and Missouri sued the Biden administration over lifting Title 42, 18 other states 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. The Department of Homeland security expected up to 18,000 illegals per day to come to the border if Title 42 was lifted.
Judge Robert Summerhays, a Trump appointee, notified the states that he would issue a temporary restraining order against the Biden administration. As the court temporarily blocked the administation’s plans, the judge said, “The parties will confer regarding the specific terms to be contained in the Temporary Restraining Order and attempt to reach agreement.”
Title 42 is not an immigration statute. It is a public health law that was used by the Trump administration during the pandemic to quickly remove the huge numbers of migrants and prevent them from entering the country. You may not remember the health disaster that occurred with illegal immigration of unaccompanied minors during the Obama administration prior to Covid: diseases that had been eradicated in the United States suddenly showed up at our border and they were trafficked all over the nation, creating stress on school districts and healthcare facilities. Everything from Scabies to Tuberculosis came into the country. Title 42 was meant to prevent a major disaster with Covid cases flooding into the US on top of everything else.
“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. We will continue to ensure that citizenship means something and that those in this country illegally are not conferred greater rights than our citizens.”Louisiana Attorney General Jeff Landry (The Center Square)
