EXPLAINER: Will immigration increase with the end of the asylum rule?

Since the start of the pandemic, the United States has used a public health rule aimed at limiting the spread of the disease to deport asylum seekers at the southern border.

Title 42, as it is known, has been used more than 2.5 million times to deport migrants since March 2020, although this number includes people who have repeatedly tried to cross the border.

But due to a judge’s ruling, starting next Wednesday, immigration authorities will no longer be able to use Title 42 to quickly deport potential asylum seekers. The change comes as a growing number of people seek to enter the country through the southern border and Republicans intend to make immigration a key issue when they take control of the House in January.

A look at Title 42 and the potential impact of the decision:

In March 2020, the United States Centers for Disease Control and Prevention issued an order restricting migration across southern and northern borders, saying it was necessary to reduce the spread of the coronavirus. The virus was ravaging the United States, schools were closing and hospitals were filling up, and President Donald Trump was trying many ways to limit migration, his flagship political issue.
