The Center for Disease Control and Prevention announced Friday the end of enforcement of Title 42, a decades-old federal law impose by the Trump administration to limit immigration to stop the spread of COVID-19 during the pandemic.
The announcement was widely expected and will be effective May 23, a date that was also expected.
President Trump enforced the law as a matter of public health amid a rising death toll as a result of the virus. The lifting of it is expected to result in an immigration surge at the southern U.S. border.
