Three Republican States Sue Biden for Ending Title 42

Three Republican-led states sued President Biden over his decision to revoke the Title 42 health order.

Background: In 2020, President Trump enacted the Title 42 health policy which allowed for the rapid expulsion of migrants who crossed the border to claim asylum.

The rule was used frequently by both the Trump and Biden administrations to expel migrants. However, last week the Biden administration announced the rule will expire in May. Reports indicate the Biden administration has used Title 42 1.7 million times.

What Happened: Arizona, Missouri, and Louisiana filed a lawsuit to block the lifting of Title 42. The Republican-led states argue that the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) violated the Administrative Procedures Act by failing to allow for a comment period on its revocation.
