As Title 42 Ends, Biden Restricts Asylum Access at Mexico Border

The final version of the regulation will be posted online later today

The U.S. will roll out a new regulation on Wednesday that would deny asylum to most migrants crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally, a key part of President Joe Biden's enforcement plan as COVID-19 border restrictions known as Title 42 end this week.

The final version of the regulation, to be posted online later in the day, will have no major changes from a draft published in February, a senior Biden administration official told reporters on Tuesday evening.

The regulation will create a new presumption that migrants arriving at the border are ineligible for asylum if they passed through other nations without seeking protection elsewhere first or if they failed to use legal pathways for U.S. entry.
