AAF Praises SCOTUS for Delaying Lift of Title 42

Facing a surge on the border, 19 states asked the Supreme Court for an emergency stay on lifting Title 42, which was granted Monday evening.

“Immigration enforcement at the southern border is nonexistent, and the Biden administration refuses to acknowledge it,” said AAF Executive Director Paul Teller. “The work done to secure the border has been dismantled piece by piece, leaving Title 42 as the only means to address the crisis. The Biden administration’s record on the border is dismal, the American people deserve leadership that will take action to address the crisis.”

Background

Under the Biden Administration there have been an estimated 5.5 million illegal crossings, and the Department of Homeland Security estimates that border crossings will double if the Biden administration is allowed to end Title 42. Title 42 is the Trump-Pence administration policy that returns illegal aliens to the other side of the border.
