Texas v. Biden, Dec. 15, 2022

"This case began as a challenge to the termination of the Migrant Protection Protocols
("MPP") program in January 2021. Although the legal instruments governing the termination
evolved over time by issuance of new memoranda, this case continued. Most recently, the
Supreme Court remanded the case for this Court to consider Plaintiff States of Texas and
Missouri's ("Plaintiffs") claims against the most recent memoranda. The Court now considers
Plaintiffs' Motion to Postpone the Effective Date of Agency Action ("Motion") (ECF No. 149),
filed on August 8, 2022. Plaintiffs carry their burden to show - among other things - they will
likely prevail on the merits. Accordingly, the Court GRANTS the Motion and STAYS the most
recent memoranda, issued on October 29, 2021, and corresponding decision to terminate MPP
until the Court can resolve the merits of Plaintiffs' claims."
