With the expiration of Title 42 on May 11, 2023, 6,413 migrants were released into the United States without scheduled court dates or the means to be tracked. Border authorities did this under the “parole with conditions” policy, which allows for migrants to be released with parole in cases when the Customs and Border Protection (CBP) is overcrowded. Under this policy, migrants are required to make an appointment with “ICE for initiation of section 24 removal proceedings” or request a Notice to Appear by mail within 60 days. However, they do not receive a specified court date or alien registration number, making it difficult for these individuals to be tracked.
Amidst this, Florida Judge T. Kent Wetherell II motioned a temporary restraining order on May 11th, just as Title 42 was set to expire. Due to a lapse in timing, 2,576 of the migrants ended up being released after the court order, though the releases have since been halted. On Tuesday, May 16, 2023, Wetherell held this request, ordering a preliminary injunction to temporarily block the policy.
