The Biden administration tried to end Title 42 last year, with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention calling the pandemic border policy "no longer necessary" after "considering current public health conditions and an increased availability of tools to fight COVID-19."
Legal efforts by Republican-led states blocked their efforts at the time, but those efforts become moot on May 11, when the COVID-19 pandemic public health emergency is set to end. Its end will trigger the termination of Title 42 that same day.
