Breaking news out of Lousiana where District Court Judge Robert Summerhays just blocked the Biden administration from ending the use of Title 42 to expel illegal immigrants quickly

In consultation with the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), this termination will be implemented on May 23, 2022, to enable DHS time to implement appropriate COVID-19 mitigation protocols, such as scaling up a program to provide COVID-19 vaccinations to migrants and prepare for resumption of regular migration under Title 8.

This is good news, and, to be honest, the Biden administration should be happy it happened this way because it gives them political cover:
