USA: SCOTUS delays the lifting of controversial Title 42 policy

USA: SCOTUS delays the lifting of controversial Title 42 policy

Washington, Dec 20 (Prensa Latina) The Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) has put in place an order that could block a pandemic-era border policy from ending Wednesday, pressing pause on the expected wind-down of a federal directive that has prevented the entry of millions of migrants.

In response to a request filed by 19 Republican-led states, Chief Justice John Roberts on Monday temporarily stayed a lower court’s ruling that required the Biden administration to lift the implementation of Title 42 by Dec. 21.

The magistrate’s order comes after a 19-state coalition, led by Arizona, on Monday asked SCOTUS to halt the elimination of such a policy imposed by the Donald Trump administration and set to expire tomorrow.

It is unclear how long the temporary hold will last, but in his order, Roberts gave Joe Biden’s administration till 4 p.m. to respond, according to The Texas Tribune.

The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) stated that Title 42 will continue to be enforced as required by the Supreme Court, ‘and individuals attempting to illegally enter the United States will continue to be deported to Mexico.’

The Texas newspaper recalled that immigration officials have used the health order more than two million times to deport migrants.
