The implementation of the so-called Title 42, a public health border restriction that has been in effect since the COVID-19 pandemic, ended this Thursday. Its conclusion significantly alters the immigration policy of several years in the United States, while the threat of chaos looms as thousands of migrants have been gathering at the Mexico border. This refers to the badly named “Circumvention of Lawful Pathways” rule, better known as the asylum ban, which creates a presumption of asylum ineligibility for anyone who has crossed an intermediate country on their way to the United States and has not completed an electronic appointment through the CBP One mobile application to request asylum.
Title 42 allowed authorities to quickly reject immigrants at U.S. borders for a few years, ostensibly to prevent the spread of the new coronavirus. However, that changed on Thursday, May 11, at 11:59 p.m., when the public health emergency and Title 42 expired.
