Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt said Monday that a court had issued a temporary restraining order against the Biden administration plan to end Title 42 restrictions at the border.

The policy had been previously scheduled to end on May 23.

“In a lawsuit originally filed by Missouri, Louisiana, and Arizona, our Office just obtained a temporary restraining order to keep Title 42 in place,” tweeted Schmitt.

“This is a huge victory for border security, but the fight continues on,” he added.

Title 42 prevents those seeking asylum at the border from entering the country to await their documents being processed. The policy was originally implemented under the Trump administration because of the threat posed by migrants carrying coronavirus into the country.

Critics of the policy claim it was motived by racism and xenophobia against migrants seeking refugee status.

The Centers for Disease Control announced that the drop in coronavirus cases and hospitalizations no longer necessitated the restrictions. The Biden administration has used the assessment by the CDC to justify ending Title 42 despite criticism that it will almost certainly lead to a massive spike in illegal immigration.

In Oct. 2021, Biden administration officials estimated that as many as 400,000 new migrants could attempt to cross the border in a month if Title 42 had been rescinded at that time.

The temporary restraining order prevents the Biden administration from acting before a May 13 hearing about the policy.

Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich also celebrated the order on Monday.

“I am so proud of the lawyers from our office who just got a Temporary Restraining Order to keep Title 42 in place,” tweeted Brnovich. “We will continue to fight the Biden administration’s open border policies.”
