WASHINGTON, Dec 7 (Reuters) – U.S. President Joe Biden’s administration on Wednesday said it will ask a federal court to keep pandemic-era restrictions for migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border in place, a striking reversal after they sought to end the restrictions this spring.
The administration in a court filing said it wants a higher court to overturn a November ruling by U.S. District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan invalidating an order known as Title 42, which blocks some asylum seekers at the border.
The administration also said the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working on a regulation to formalize the border restrictions.
Issued in March 2020 under former Republican President Donald Trump, Title 42 allows U.S. authorities to rapidly expel migrants caught at the border to Mexico or other countries without the chance to pursue asylum. Sullivan said the order, which had the stated goal of curbing the spread of COVID-19, violated federal regulatory law.
Biden, a Democrat who took office in 2021, pledged to undo Trump asylum restrictions. But his administration initially kept the order in place for more than a year amid record migrant arrests at the U.S.-Mexico border. This May, the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention moved to terminate Title 42 saying it was no longer needed for public health reasons, but was unable to end it due to legal challenges.

The ugly fact to all this ‘migrant’ crap is that Biden’s plan to traffick-for-sex these people will remain in place. smh

I wonder if they realize this applies to the stuff they looted from stores?
Jackass Joe is nothing more than a blowhard coward who allows an overt invasion into the country to go on unfettered year after year! It honestly scares me to think what this demented grinning imbecile wouldn’t do if we were attacked militarily!
What restrictions on anything at the border?
