On Monday, 19 Republican-led states filed an emergency appeal with the Supreme Court requesting the justices to uphold a pandemic policy invoked by former President Donald Trump known as Title 42.
Since its inception in March 2020, at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, Title 42 has been an integral part of the border policies and management techniques of both the Trump administration and the Biden regime.
This policy allows U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) to expel migrants seeking asylum during the COVID pandemic into the United States in order to “prevent [the] spread of communicable disease,” as the lives of Americans should come first before anyone else.
On Friday, a federal appeals court rejected a bid by several states led by Republicans to maintain Title 42 in effect. This decision cleared the way for the case to be heard by the United States Supreme Court.
There are already a significant number of people who are concerned about the potential impact that the policy’s expiration may have on the ever-increasing numbers of illegal immigrants who are making their way to our border.
On Monday, 19 conservative states asked SCOTUS to intervene in Biden’s decision to end Title 42, which is one of the last defense measures to prevent illegal immigrants from crossing our border.
The states are Arizona, Louisiana, Missouri, Alabama, Alaska, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming.
“If the Supreme Court declines to act, the states said in their filing, it would “inflict massive irreparable harms on the states” and “unprecedented calamity at the southern border,” USA Today reported.
