A federal judge in Louisiana has temporarily blocked the Biden administration from ending Title 42, the controversial pandemic-era border policy enacted by former President Donald Trump, which cites COVID-19 as the reason to rapidly expel asylum seekers at the U.S. border. The order was set to expire on Monday, May 23. (Photo by Mario Tama/Getty Images)
