The Supreme Court of the United States has paused the expiration of Title 42 which was to take place on Wednesday, December 21st. Not a moment too soon, SCOTUS issued a filing in which Chief Justice Roberts stayed the lower court order.

The order came after Arizona filed an emergency appeal on Monday asking the Supreme Court to halt its expiration. Justice Roberts gave the Department of Justice until Tuesday evening at 5:00pm to file a response to the states petitioning to maintain Title 42.

The states petitioning were Arizona, Louisiana, Missouri, Alabama, Alaska, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming. Arizona attorney general Mark Brnovich wrote the request on behalf of the states.


“No one reasonably disputes that the failure to grant a stay will cause a crisis of unprecedented proportions at the border. DHS estimates that daily illegal crossings may more than double from around 7,000/day to 15,000/day once Title 42 is terminated,” the filing read.

National Review reports of the Title’s battle in recent history:

In November, a group of Republican attorneys general from states such as Arizona and Louisiana filed suit in a U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to protect Title 42 but had their petition denied.

“Getting rid of Title 42 will recklessly and needlessly endanger more Americans and migrants by exacerbating the catastrophe that is occurring at our southern border,”  Brnovich said.

Border officials have warned that Title 42’s end could bring an explosion of illegal immigration, which has been ongoing and steadily increasing. The situation is so urgent that the Democratic mayor of El Paso, Texas, a town that’s been overwhelmed by the border crisis, declared a state of emergency on Saturday, expecting that the “influx on Wednesday will be incredible.”

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’

At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.

Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”

Speaking on the Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”

“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”

“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
