Supreme Court Orders Title 42 and Remain in Mexico Policy to be Kept In Place -- for the Moment

Emmit Sullivan, the incompetent partisan idiot who launched his own Judicial Prosecution of Michael Flynn after the government dropped all charges against him, ordered an end to Title 42 on his own dubious, ridiculous authority.

The Supreme Court isn't so sure.

The Supreme Court on Monday temporarily halted the expiration of Title 42, a Trump-era immigration policy that allows border officials to turn away asylum-seekers due to concerns about public health.

Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts granted an administrative stay to temporarily pause the rollback, keeping Title 42 active past the initial expiration date of Dec. 21, pending another order from the Court.

A federal judge had struck the immigration policy down last month and set it on the path toward expiration, but a group of 19 GOP state attorneys general asked the Supreme Court to let Title 42 stand as states grapple with immigration at the U.S.-Mexico border.

In Monday's filing, Roberts ordered the Biden administration to respond on the matter by 5 p.m. EST on Tuesday.

"Earlier today, I filed a motion before SCOTUS asking to halt the Biden's scrapping of Title 42. Just now, SCOTUS returned a decision in our favor. The fight to keep Title 42 in place continues," Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton (R) said on Twitter after the announcement.

The border city of El Paso, Texas, declared a state of emergency as an influx of migrants surged into shelters just days ahead of the expected Title 42 end date.

"Texas and other states are insisting that the Court leave Title 42 in place. Today's order is a step in that direction. This helps prevent illegal immigration," Texas Gov. Greg Abbott (R) wrote on Twitter.

The court's step toward protecting Title 42 may not be final -- in 2021, the Supreme Court ordered the Biden administration to keep implementing the so-called "Remain in Mexico" program.

Nearly a year later, the court made a final ruling that Remain in Mexico -- officially known as the Migrant Protection Protocols -- could be legally rescinded.

The left is now claiming that Title 42 is actually causing the current border crisis, because it... worked properly to keep illegal immigrants out of the country, which leftists call "bottling immigration up." They say we only have a crisis now because Title 42 "bottled up" immigration -- that is, worked properly to keep out illegal aliens as the law demands -- for years under Trump.

The left understands that the public is getting sick of the Democrats' "Let them in, let them all in" policy on illegal immigration, and scrambling to blame this all on Republicans. ABC's ludicrous Kitchen Witch Martha Raddatz claimed that the reason immigrants are flooding the border is because Republicans are lying and saying "The border is open," acting as Travel Agents for illegal aliens.

If Republicans just stopped lying about the border being open, these illegal aliens would stop flooding to the border, which they then find to, perfectly coincidentally, be open.

So that's why the media refuses to report on the border! They're trying to keep illegal immigrants out by not advertising to them that the border is open!

What wonderful patriots!
