U.S. Supreme Court Praised For Title 42 Border Security Ruling

"Today’s Title 42 stay from the Supreme Court is much needed but the Biden administration must do more to secure our southern border. Too many lives are ruined as a result of the fentanyl crisis, enabled by the open border, and we need action now."

A Supreme Court decision on Title 42 on Tuesday sent shockwaves through Twitter, with many users praising the outcome.

The Supreme Court upheld Title 42, a Trump-era policy that allows immigration officials to quickly deport migrants in order to protect public health in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic.

Many Twitter users applauded the decision, arguing that it is critical to ensure that America’s borders are properly enforced.

Marsha (Catron) Espinosa, Assistant Secretary of Public Affairs at the Department of Homeland Security, stated that the policy will be enforced.

“As required by today’s Supreme Court order, the Title 42 public health order will remain in effect and individuals who attempt to enter the United States unlawfully will continue to be expelled to Mexico or their home country,” she tweeted.

“People should not listen to the lies of smugglers who take advantage of vulnerable migrants, putting lives at risk. The border is not open, and we will continue to fully enforce our immigration laws.”

Sen. Mike Lee, R-Utah, tweeted that the ruling will deter future border crossings.

“SCOTUS’s temporary stay of Title 42 protections will forestall a surge of trafficking and drugs. Lives will be saved. Yet as Democrats recently rejected my effort to remedy this situation legislatively, it falls to @POTUS to enforce the laws currently on the books,” he tweeted.

“Today, SCOTUS handed Texas and the USA a huge victory by allowing Title 42 to remain in place after Biden illegally tried to terminate this critical policy. I will continue to fight at every turn and do everything in my power to help secure our border and keep Texans safe,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, R., tweeted.

Virginia Governor Glenn Youngkin, R., praised the ruling but demanded further action.

“Today’s Title 42 stay from the Supreme Court is much needed but the Biden administration must do more to secure our southern border. Too many lives are ruined as a result of the fentanyl crisis, enabled by the open border, and we need action now,” he tweeted

Other social media users voiced similar concerns that Title 42 does not go far enough to secure the border.

“I welcome the Supreme Court’s decision to maintain Title 42, but the status quo is unsustainable. We need a long-term solution to our border crisis that protects American communities, holds the cartels accountable and restores order to the border,” Rep.-elect Monica De La Cruz, R-Texas., tweeted.

Michael Burgess, R-Texas, wrote, “Today was a small step in the right direction – but not nearly enough. @POTUS must secure our southern border!”

While I am thankful that the Supreme Court upheld Title 42, we need a permanent legislative solution,” Rep.-elect Nick LaLota, R-NY., tweeted. “If the Biden Administration won’t act to keep Americans safe and support law enforcement, Congress must act.”

The American Civil Liberties Union condemned the ruling.

“The Supreme Court has allowed Title 42, which was set to end this month, to remain in place temporarily while litigation continues. This decision allows our government to continue unlawfully expelling people seeking asylum. This cruel policy must end,” the organization’s official Twitter wrote.
