Chief Justice Roberts Takes Action on Illegal Alien Invasion

Chief Justice John Roberts

( – At the direction of Chief Justice John Roberts, the United States Supreme Court has blocked the termination of Title 42, the Trump-era order which allows the fast expulsion of illegal aliens on public health grounds.

Title 42, which US authorities used to deport 2.4 million illegals in over 2.5 years, was going to expire on December 21 under a ruling by a liberal federal judge based in Washington, DC.

The ruling issued in November led experts to forecast an even greater influx of illegal immigrants after nearly 6 million entered the United States since Joe Biden took over the White House almost two years ago. That includes more than 1 million undetected “gotaways,” according to Customs and Border Protection estimates.

In a decision on Monday, the US Supreme Court allowed Title 42 to remain in force during a legal challenge filed by 19 Republican-led states.

The attorneys general of the GOP states insist a likely spike in the number of illegal immigrant arrivals would burden their states with higher costs.

The decision by Chief Justice John Roberts gave the sides in the dispute time to respond until 5 pm on Tuesday. Meanwhile, Title 42 will remain in force during the presentation of the legal arguments, AP reported, as cited by Newsmax.

On Monday, the 19 Republican-led states joined an application that asked the Supreme Court to delay Title 42’s expiration until it could review the US District Court of DC ruling.

The states in question are Arizona, Louisiana, Missouri, Alabama, Alaska, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, Utah, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

According to the GOP state AGs, the federal government was circumventing the Administrative Procedures Act (APA) to repeal Title 42 immediately based on lost litigation.

“The United States’ ‘it’s legal when we say it’s legal’ premise lacks any pretense of propriety. And its too-cute-by-half tactic of taking an appeal only after the States sought intervention, then moving to hold that appeal in indefinite abeyance is not substantively different from capitulation,” the Republican states said.

“No one reasonably disputes that the failure to grant a stay will cause a crisis of unprecedented proportions at the border,” they added.

“Failure to grant a stay here will inflict massive irreparable harms on the states, particularly as the States bear many of the consequences of unlawful immigration. Indeed, even California Governor Gavin Newsom recently declared that the termination of Title 42 would ‘break’ California’s ability to handle the influx,” the GOP states’ application read.

The daily number of illegal aliens entering the US would more than double – from 7,000 to 15,000 per day if Title 42 is lifted, according to estimates by the Department of Homeland Security.
