Ending Title 42: A Step Toward Restoring Access to Asylum at the U.S. Border

The Biden administration’s decision to end Title 42, effective May 23, 2022, is a key step toward restoring the right to seek asylum at the border.

There is no public health rationale for continuing Title 42. Ending it will help restore the asylum process and take a step toward building a fair, humane, and workable immigration system.
