Shortly before the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) ended its Trump-era COVID-19 pandemic restriction on the US-Mexico border, known as “Title 42”, a federal judge in Louisiana temporarily blocked its termination with a national preliminary. injunction. The judge found that several dozen Republican-led states were likely to prevail in their claims against the termination of the policy based on the Administrative Procedure Act, and noted that termination would negatively affect the plaintiff states and the Department of Homeland Security. He concluded that the policy should continue while the States trial continues.

The Department of Justice plans to appeal the decision while enforcing Title 42 policy pending the appeal.
