With border towns and major cities across the country panicking as the Trump-era border policy, Title 42, is set to expire on Wednesday, Chief Justice John Roberts temporarily blocked the ending of the policy while the Supreme Court considers Republican state officials' attempt to keep the policy in place during a legal battle.
Title 42, which was enforced as a public-health measure due to the Covid-19 pandemic, allowed for the quick deportation of migrants who crossed the border illegally. However, some see the measure as a deterrent for migrants seeking asylum, as they could be deported even though they requested legitimate protection from the U.S. It is estimated that approximately 2.5 million illegal migrants have been deported since Title 42 took effect.
Even without the end of Title 42, border officials are already fighting a record number of illegal border crossers. Roughly 4 million people have entered the U.S. illegally at the southern border since Joe Biden took office in January of 2021. Those numbers are expected to skyrocket when Title 42 ends. The rising figures have caused mayors in several Democrat-run cities to call for additional aid with Mayor Eric Adams issuing a dire warning to lawmakers and New York City residents on Saturday that the city will not be able to keep up with the influx of migrants arriving by bus daily.
Chief Roberts has given the Biden administration until 5 p.m. Tuesday to file a legal response to the temporary order. The order by Chief Roberts will remain in effect until the court makes a decision on the emergency request to stop the end of Title 42. The effort is being led by Republican attorneys general for Arizona and Louisiana.
The temporary order is not an opinion issued by the Court and does not represent the Court's views of the legal issues regarding Title 42.
