MALONE – Franklin County on Tuesday joined a number of border counties in New York state in declaring a state of emergency related to the expiration of Title 42, an order that expired on May 11 prohibiting the migration into the United States by “covered non-citizens” traveling from Canada or Mexico.

The state of emergency began at 3 p.m. Tuesday, county officials announced in a press release, and will remain in effect for 30 days, or until 11:59 p.m. on June 21. The declaration will be reviewed prior to its expiration to determine if an extension should be considered, the release stated.
