A federal judge has promised to decide by May 23 whether he will allow the Biden administration to go forward with its plans to end the border policy known as Title 42.

U.S. District Court Judge Robert Summerhays of the Western District of Louisiana told Justice Department and state attorneys general during a hearing Friday that he will continue the temporary halt on President Joe Biden‘s plan to stop imposing the pandemic public health policy, which allows for most illegal migrants who come across the border to be turned back. A final decision and more details will be released in the next 10 days.
