The U.S. Supreme Court has recently handed out a long-awaited ruling concerning the reversal of Title 42, following the chaotic situation at the U.S-Mexico border, which is growing rapidly.
According to a report by Axio, the U.S. Supreme Court has decided to continue with Title 42, which was imposed during Trump’s presidency.
“The expected Dec. 21 expiration of the policy — which has cited the pandemic to allow border officials to rapidly expel migrants and asylum seekers at the border for more than 2.5 years — was delayed after the Supreme Court intervened at the request of Republican challengers,” the outlet reported. “The Supreme Court approved a last-minute effort by 19 GOP-led states to block the termination of Title 42.”
Department of Homeland Security Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs Marsha (Catron) Espinosa stated that the department will make sure the policy is enforced.
“As required by today’s Supreme Court order, the Title 42 public health order will remain in effect, and individuals who attempt to enter the United States unlawfully will continue to be expelled to Mexico or their home country,” she tweeted. “People should not listen to the lies of smugglers who take advantage of vulnerable migrants, putting lives at risk. The border is not open, and we will continue to fully enforce our immigration laws.”
Several GOP members applauded the “huge ruling” on Twitter.
Republican Sen. Mike Lee from Utah tweeted that the verdict will curb future illegal border crossings.
“SCOTUS’s temporary stay of Title 42 protections will forestall a surge of trafficking and drugs. Lives will be saved. Yet as Democrats recently rejected my effort to remedy this situation legislatively, it falls to @POTUS to enforce the laws currently on the books,” he tweeted.
“Today, SCOTUS handed Texas and the USA a huge victory by allowing Title 42 to remain in place after Biden illegally tried to terminate this critical policy,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, R., tweeted. “I will continue to fight at every turn and do everything in my power to help secure our border and keep Texans safe.”
Glenn Youngkin, the Republican Gov. from Virginia, also lauded the verdict and asked for further action.
“Today’s Title 42 stay from the Supreme Court is much needed but the Biden administration must do more to secure our southern border,” he tweeted. “Too many lives are ruined as a result of the fentanyl crisis, enabled by the open border, and we need action now.”
“I welcome the Supreme Court’s decision to maintain Title 42, but the status quo is unsustainable,” Rep.-elect Monica De La Cruz, R-Texas., tweeted, “We need a long-term solution to our border crisis that protects American communities, holds the cartels accountable and restores order to the border.”
The American Civil Liberties Union condemned the ruling.
“The Supreme Court has allowed Title 42, which was set to end this month, to remain in place temporarily while litigation continues,” the organization’s official Twitter wrote. “This decision allows our government to continue unlawfully expelling people seeking asylum. This cruel policy must end.”
The U.S. Supreme Court gave a remarkable ruling to curb the massive influx of illegal immigrants and drug trafficking. This verdict shows that the Supreme Court is much more sensible than the current administration.
Once again the Biden administration has proved its incompetence as they are only making the border crisis worse by trying to lift Title 42, however, the Supreme Court took a very bold decision for this great nation.
In the previous week, the U.S. Supreme Court decided to temporarily lift off the restrictions on illegal immigrants looking for asylum.
As an emergency measure, Title 42 empowers the U.S Government to close the borders. During the pandemic in March 2020, this measure was taken by former president Donald Trump. Title 42 was responsible for curbing an immense load of illegal migrants.
The U.S. Supreme Court decided to get involved when Title 42 was close to its expiration. The Supreme Court gave an excellent ruling by stopping the reversal of Title 42.
The Supreme Court’s decision shows that American institutions are more concerned about the safety and prosperity of this nation as compared to the Biden administration.
