A federal judge from the state of Texas ruled against the decision of the administration of President Joe Biden to exempt minor children who are not accompanied by adults from being under a controversial policy established in the administration of Donald Trumpthe same day the federal appeals court limited the current administration's use of that policy.

This opinion was given this Friday, by Judge Mark Pittman in the Northern District Court of Texas, originates from a lawsuit filed by Texas against the Biden government, which examined minors as being subject to a health policy published known as Title 42, which allows agents to turn away migrants detained at the US southern border.

In this case, the president has (arbitrarily) exempted unaccompanied foreign minors who test positive for covid-19 of the procedures of Title 42, whose purpose was to prevent the spread of the coronavirus. As a result, border states like Texas are now bearing the brunt of the consequences,” Pittman wrote in his opinion.

This ruling will take effect in seven days, the time the Biden administration has to appeal.

In addition, a federal appeals court expressed mistrust of the use of public health policy in a ruling limiting the government's use of that order, arguing that by order of the country's Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. "It seems in some respects a relic of a time without vaccines, with little evidence, few therapies and little certainty."

For its part, The Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit ruled this Friday that the US can continue to expel migrant families under an emergency rule against the covid-19 pandemicbut "only to places where they are not persecuted or tortured."
