Judge blocks US from using Title 42 to expel migrants

A federal judge issued an order on Tuesday barring federal authorities from using Title 42, a Trump-era rule that allowed the U.S. to quickly expel migrants who crossed the border.

U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan called the policy “arbitrary and capricious” in his ruling on Tuesday.
