Advancing Justice - AAJC Joins 100+ Organizations Urging Biden Administration to Reaffirm and Implement End to Title 42

June 8, 2022

Civil rights organizations call on the Biden admin to take all available additional steps to end the Title 42 policy.

The right to seek asylum in the United States is in peril. In spite of conflicting court decisions, the White House and federal agencies maintain vast authority to uphold this fundamental right. We commend the April 2022 decision to lift the Title 42 order and the immediate action taken to appeal the May 20 ruling in Louisiana v. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. But you must not stop with these actions alone. The undersigned civil society organizations write to urge immediate action to preserve asylum and refugee law at the United States’ borders to the fullest extent, consistent with current court decisions concerning the use of Title 42.
