Supreme Court pushes pause on expiration of Title 42 after emergency appeal from states

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.”

Overdose death in IN apartment building leads officers to 13 migrants, mostly children, in basement squalor

13 illegal aliens — most of them children — were reportedly living in an apartment building basement in Indiana, only found because of an overdose death. Officers of the Hammond Police Department were called to investigate the death of a resident in the multi-unit building. But during the investigation, officers discovered a large number of migrants were illegally living in the building’s basement, WGN-TV reported.

When officers arrived, they found 13 illegals from Venezuela — including nine children ranging in age from two months to 14 years, and two women and two men — living in the basement space.

Neighbors told the media that they had no idea that so many people were living illegally in the building as they never saw any of them outside the home.

Further investigation revealed that a local member of the clergy had arranged the illegal living quarters for the migrants. The clergy member was not identified publicly and he has not been charged with anything at present.

“The City of Hammond is not open to this type of illegal criminal activity and [they have] placed people in significant harm, including children,” said Hammond Mayor Thomas M. McDermott Jr. who insisted he would hold the clergy member accountable.

It has not yet been reported what the migrants will do, where they will go, and if the city will be on the hook to care for them.

Breitbart News reports that Hammond, Indiana, is just one of many cities in which large numbers of illegals have been found crammed into small spaces in squalid living conditions.

In March, New York City building inspectors discovered an illegal flop house for migrants in which some 70 of them were living in the cramped basement of a Queens furniture store. Through an investigation it was found that the building’s owner, a man named Ebou Sarr, himself an immigrant, was charging the illegals $300 a month to live there.
