Title 42 mainly focuses on measures regarding public health by controlling the mass influx of illegal immigrants primarily coming from the southern border.
Former president Donald Trump used Title 42 back in the pandemic era. The motive behind implementing Title 42 was to curb the number of incoming illegal migrants more quickly without even giving them the option of asylum.
The current president of The United States, Joe Biden, has been planning to end Title 42 which can result in total mayhem at the southern border. Hence Republican Texas Governor Greg Abbott asked the supreme court to take measures concerning Biden’s irresponsible decision.
Abbott believes that with the reversal of Title 42 the US would be looking at a serious public health risk in addition to massive chaos at the border.
Abbott stated: “If the courts do not intervene and put a halt to the removal of Title 42, it’s gonna be total chaos.
“Whether it’s COVID or some other issue, when you have people coming across the globe without knowing – at all – what their health status is, that almost by definition, is a public health risk.
“There’s every reason to keep that in place.”
He defended his policy of bussing migrants north saying:
“The very reason behind this is because communities like Del Rio and Eagle Pass and others, they were having thousands of people dumped off into their communities and they don’t have the capability of dealing with that vast number of migrants,”
He added. “I removed them to locations that self-identified as sanctuary cities that have the capability and the desire to help out these migrants.
“And so that’s exactly what’s taking place.”
He slammed Biden for his ‘open border’ policies when ABC reporter Martha Raddatz said:
“I don’t think I’ve ever heard President Biden say, ‘We have an open border, come on over.”
“The people I have heard say it is you, former President Trump, are Ron DeSantis. That message reverberates in Mexico and beyond.”
“So they do get the message that it is an open border and smugglers use all those kinds of statements.”
He stated the fact that “It was known from the time that Joe Biden got elected that Joe Biden supported open borders,”
“It is known by the cartels, they have sophisticated information.
“Whether or not the Biden administration is going to enforce the immigration laws or not is known across the world but most importantly, known among the cartels.”
Abbott is moving state resources to the border to try to deal with the coming chaos. He stated:
“Now, more than ever, it is imperative that our law enforcement officers and Texas National Guard soldiers adopt innovative solutions needed to counteract President Biden’s reckless decision to end Title 42 expulsions next week.”
“While the federal government abandons its constitutional duty to defend America and secure the border, the State of Texas continues taking unprecedented action to deescalate and decrease the influx of dangerous criminals, illegal weapons, and deadly drugs like fentanyl into our country.
“Stepping up to overcome extraordinary challenges is embedded in the spirit of Texas, and I have no doubt that the exceptional men and women serving Texans—and Americans—through Operation Lone Star will employ the best possible strategies to navigate the uncharted waters of President Biden’s escalating border crisis.”
The number of immigrants should be controlled. If not controlled the US will be facing many issues such as overcrowding, congestion, and an immense burden on public services. Supreme court should act wisely on this matter, as their decision would be very consequential for United States’ future.
Title 42 should not be repealed from the US. If it happens Biden and his administration will be solely responsible for this imprudent decision. Government and the Americans both will have to pay the cost and bear the consequences of Biden’s act.
