(Washington, DC) --  A victory for Republicans in their fight to keep a Trump-era public health rule in place.

It's called Title 42, and has been used to expedite deportations at the border.

The Supreme Court voted five-to-four Tuesday to keep it in place, for now.

Justice Neil Gorsuch sided with the liberal wing of the court. The justices will hear oral arguments in February on whether 19 Republican-led states should be allowed to intervene in defense of the policy.
