A Trump-appointed federal judge on Monday granted a temporary restraining order to prevent the Biden Regime from lifting Title 42, a Trump-era order blocking asylum seekers at the US border.
Title 42 was used by President Trump in 2020 to expel migrants seeking asylum during the Covid pandemic.
Biden ordered Title 42 to be lifted on May 23, but a federal judge just barred him from ending the Trump-era order.
Earlier this month, Arizona Louisiana, and Missouri filed the lawsuit against Biden’s decision to end Title 42 on May 23.
US District Judge for the Western District of Louisiana Robert Summerhays, a Trump appointee, granted a temporary restraining order on Monday.
