Biden administration to end pandemic immigration restrictions on May 23

The Biden administration plans on May 23 to end Trump-era pandemic restrictions on immigration, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said Friday. "After considering current public health conditions and an increased availability of tools to fight COVID-19 (such as highly effective vaccines and therapeutics), the CDC Director has determined that an Order suspending the right to introduce migrants into the United States is no longer necessary," the agency said in a statement , referring to former President Donald Trump's Title 42 public health order. Reports earlier this week had said the Biden administration looked set to end the immigration restrictions by May 23.
