USCRI Denounces Continuation of Title 42 after Judge’s Ruling

By USCRI May 23, 2022

On Friday, a Louisiana federal district judge ruled to continue the use of Title 42, an obscure provision of public health law that allows border officials to rapidly expel asylum seekers and migrants to Mexico or their home countries without due process. This comes ahead of the Biden administration’s May 23 deadline to end the use of Title 42. USCRI denounces the ruling that prevents the termination of Title 42, which has already expelled over 1.8 million vulnerable individuals seeking asylum.

“Maintaining the status quo only prolongs the humanitarian crises caused by the use of Title 42,” USCRI President and CEO Eskinder Negash said. “During this time, where the legal right to asylum is under attack, we urge Congress to stop any legislation that would prevent ending the use of Title 42.”

USCRI, founded in 1911, is a non-governmental, not-for-profit international organization committed to working on behalf of refugees and immigrants and their transition to a dignified life.
