Biden to Comply with Court Order Blocking Title 42 Removal

Temporary processing facilities in Donna, Texas, safely processes family units and unaccompanied alien children (UACs) encountered and in the custody of the U.S. Border Patrol March 17, 2021.

The Biden administration will comply with a federal judge’s order blocking the removal of the Title 42 border restrictions.

Fox News reports:

A Louisiana district court judge has announced plans to block such a move until Biden negotiates a deal with Republican border states. A senior administration official said the White House plans to comply with that order Tuesday, according to Politico.

“If and when the court issues the TRO [temporary restraining order] the department is planning to comply with that order,” the official said, going on to complain about the decision. “It really makes no sense to us that the plaintiffs would demand, and the court would order, that [Department of Homeland Security] be stopped in its use in expedited removal, which is going to prevent us from adequately preparing for the aggressive applications for immigration law when public health expires.”

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) released a plan on how to deal with post-Title 42 surges in migration on Tuesday.

The plan would surge resources for medical support and transportation at the border, but it is not significantly different from what DHS released when it first announced plans to end Title 42 on April 1.

Lawmakers from both sides of the aisle have voiced concerns about the administration’s plan to end Title 42.

“The administration hasn’t even prepared, and they don’t have a plan for what to expect. Forget about the unexpected part, I’m just asking for the first part of this,” Democrat Sen. Mark Kelly told Fox News Digital at the time. “We know what the situation on the ground is going to be. Let’s come up with a detailed plan and put it in place – and I just haven’t seen that.”
