Statement from Congressman Castro on Title 42 Ruling in Louisiana v. CDC

SAN ANTONIO – Today, Congressman Castro (TX-20) issued the following statement after a federal judge in Louisiana blocked the Biden administration from lifting Title 42:

“Today’s district court decision is disappointing and wrong. For more than two years, Title 42 has stripped legitimate asylum-seekers of their legal right to seek safety in the United States. Judge Summerhays’ decision to block the end of Title 42 will break our immigration system even further and cause unconscionable suffering for asylum-seekers and immigrant communities. As states roll back their pandemic health measures, there is no excuse to keep Title 42 in place. I strongly urge the Biden administration to appeal today’s decision and ensure that asylum-seekers receive the due process they deserve.”
