(NewsNation) — A judge has ruled in favor of dozens of Republican states seeking to prevent the Biden administration from ending a pandemic-era immigration rule. Conservatives say the rule, or something like it, is crucial to avoid an unmanageable surge of migrants at the southern border.
“I am so proud of the lawyers from our office who just got a Temporary Restraining Order to keep Title 42 in place,” tweeted Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich on Monday. “We will continue to fight the Biden administration’s open border policies.”
Title 42 is a regulation that allows Customs and Border Patrol agents to turn away migrants with the goal of preventing the spread of disease. Critics say the rule, which dates back to the 1940s, was not meant to be used as the backbone of immigration policy. But proponents argue lifting it would rob CBP of one of the only tools it has to turn migrants away as it logs encounters at the border not seen since the turn of the century.
