District Court Issues Stay of Title 42

Grants DHS five weeks to transition away from pandemic-era policy.

After ruling that the Title 42 temporary immigration policy was outdated and should be lifted immediately, District Court Judge Emmet Sullivan “reluctantly” granted the Justice Department’s request to pause the end of the border policy for five weeks.

The Department of Homeland Security claims that this will allow them to make a smooth transition away from Title 42. However, during the pause, they will still be processing asylum seekers with Title 42 still active, allowing them to use the policy to rapidly expel any migrant from the United States without legal process at any time.

“People should not listen to the lies by smugglers who will take advantage of vulnerable migrants, putting lives at risk,” DHS officials stated. “The border is closed, and we will continue to fully enforce our immigration laws at the border.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • For district court judges as they hear and rule on federal cases.
  • For Secretary Mayorkas and DHS officials as they prepare to transition away from the Title 42 policy.
