Supreme Court keeps Title 42 border directive in place – JP


White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre said in a statement that the Biden administration “will, of course, comply with the order and prepare for the Court’s review.”

She added that the administration is “advancing our preparations to manage the border in a secure, orderly, and humane way when Title 42 eventually lifts and will continue expanding legal pathways for immigration.” She also called on Congress to pass comprehensive immigration legislation.

“Today’s order gives Republicans in Congress plenty of time to move past political finger-pointing and join their Democratic colleagues in solving the challenge at our border by passing the comprehensive reform measures and delivering the additional funds for border security that President Biden has requested,” Jean-Pierre said.

The high court had temporarily halted the lower court ruling just two days before the scheduled termination date to give the justices time to consider the states’ request.

Justices Neil Gorsuch, Ketanji Brown Jackson, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan indicated they would have rejected the states’ request. Gorsuch, in a dissent joined by Jackson, said the majority’s decision to allow the border expulsion policy to continue was “unwise.”
