When Does Title 42 End

Title 42 is a controversial policy that allows Customs and Border Protection to turn migrants away without allowing them to file for asylum. The policy was originally due to end on **December 21, 2022**, but it was extended several times. The policy is now slated to end on **May 23, 2023**.

The policy has been in place since March 2020 as a public health measure during the COVID-19 pandemic. It has been criticized by human rights groups for denying asylum seekers their legal right to seek protection in the United States.
