Referring to the coronavirus epidemic, the so-called Title 42 regulation allows migrants to be quickly rejected at the border with Mexico.

For now, the controversial deportation regulation, which, in response to the coronavirus pandemic, allows migrants to be quickly rejected at the border with Mexico, remains in force. The US Supreme Court made a decision yesterday in Washington.

The so-called Title 42 rule was introduced under former US President Donald Trump and was set to expire last week. Several states, including Arizona and Texas, want to uphold the deportation rules and have appealed to the Supreme Court. He now wants to deal with the topic in February.

In the past few days and weeks, a particularly large number of migrants from Latin and Central America have come to the US southern border as they expect the lifting of regulations and thus easier terms of entry. The mayor of the border city of El Paso declared a state of emergency due to the large number of people.

This enables him, for example, to turn certain facilities into emergency shelters by order. It also allows the city to request additional staff from the state to care for and house migrants. The US government emphasized that it is ready to abolish the regulation.
