A federal judge in Louisiana has blocked the Biden administration from ending title 42 on Monday, meaning that Biden will have to continue “pandemic-related restrictions” at the border. In other words, they won’t be able to start piling refugees and border jumpers into buses and and shipping them all across the country never to be accounted for again.

ABC News writes:
The decision by Judge Robert R. Summerhays, a Trump appointee, comes as the Biden administration’s homeland security apparatus remains strained by a historic level of unauthorized migration in the southwest.
Immigration authorities arrested and stopped migrants 234,088 times along the southwest border last month, the highest monthly total in the reams of publicly available Customs and Border Protection data. That number includes a 183% increase in the number of inadmissible migrants trying to get through U.S. land ports since March.
During April, DHS says they removed 96,908 migrants under the Title 42 authority and 15,171 migrants under Title 8, which was the primary deportation authority before the pandemic.
Yeah, they’re going to have to either keep sending illegals back to their point of origin or they’ll be in violation of the law and this court order. Tough break Joe! My heart cries for you.
This is a developing story.
