Biden Appeals to Keep COVID Restrictions in Place for Migrants at US-Mexico Border

WASHINGTON (Reuters) – US President Joe Biden’s administration said on Wednesday it would ask a federal court to keep pandemic-era restrictions for migrants at the US-Mexico border in place, a striking reversal after they sought to end the restrictions this spring.

The administration wants a higher court to overturn a November ruling by US District Court of Columbia Judge Emmet Sullivan invalidating an order known as Title 42, which blocks some asylum seekers at the border.

The administration also said the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is working on a regulation to formalize the border restrictions.
