Court Says COVID-19 Can No Longer Justify Immediate Expulsion of Migrant Families

Court Says COVID-19 Can No Longer Justify Immediate Expulsion of Migrant Families”The Court is not convinced that the transmission of COVID-19 during border processing cannot be significantly mitigated.” The Biden administration can’t keep expelling migrant families under the banner of pandemic precaution, a federal court says. On Thursday, the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia struck down the administration’s interpretation of a public health rule known as Title 42, which the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) had declared as grounds for banning border crossings and immediately expelling anyone caught entering the country.

The ruling has been contested with ever-increasing intensity, dividing and reshaping American politics. And yet for all its prominence, the person most profoundly connected to it has remained unknown: the child whose conception occasioned the lawsuit.Roe’s pseudonymous plaintiff, Jane Roe, was a Dallas waitress named Norma McCorvey. Wishing to terminate her pregnancy, she filed suit in March 1970 against Dallas County District Attorney Henry Wade, challenging the Texas laws that prohibited abortion. Norma won her case. But she never had the abortion. On January 22, 1973, when the Supreme Court finally handed down its decision, she had long since given birth—and relinquished her child for adoption.The Court’s decision alluded only obliquely to the existence of Norma’s baby: In his majority opinion, Justice Harry Blackmun noted that a “pregnancy…
