A judge from the US state of Louisiana ordered on Friday (local time) that the regulation, which President Joe Biden’s government plans should have expired next Monday, initially remains in force. The legal dispute over the controversial regulation is not yet settled: the US Department of Justice immediately announced that it would appeal the judge’s decision, arguing that it was no longer justified in view of the current pandemic situation to maintain the restriction.

The regulation of the US health agency CDC, known as “Title 42”, enables the authorities to quickly deport most migrants who have entered the country illegally, citing pandemic-related health risks. According to the border protection agency CBP, around 95,000 people were deported on this basis in April alone. In the previous months, the figures were of a similar magnitude.
