Republican States Seek Extension Of Title 42, Say Removal Will ‘Directly Harm’ Them | Eastern North Carolina Now

    A group of mainly Republican-led states are seeking to get involved in the deliberations over Title 42 and want a federal judge to keep the border expulsion public health rule in place.

    In a filing with the court on Monday night, fifteen state attorneys general requested to intervene in the case after federal Judge Emmet Sullivan of the U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., ruled against Title 42 last week. The policy is set to expire on December 21, but the states want to see it prolonged.

    The states requesting to intervene are Arizona, Louisiana, Alabama, Alaska, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Virginia, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

    "Because invalidation of the Title 42 Orders will directly harm the States, they now seek to intervene to offer a defense of the Title 42 policy so that its validity can be resolved on the merits, rather than through strategic surrender," the filing said.

    "[B]order states like Arizona and Texas will face increased migrant flows and increasd [sic] releases of aliens if the Title 42 process is terminated. Those aliens will flow to other States, too," it added, noting that "[w]herever those aliens end up, they will impose financial burdens on the States involuntarily hosting them."

    Title 42 was put in place during the COVID pandemic and allowed border officials to rapidly remove migrants from the country due to public health concerns. The Biden administration has used the policy even though it tried to get rid of it earlier this year. When Sullivan decided to get rid of the rule, the Biden administration did not challenge it, but asked for a temporary pause before it ended.

    The states in the filing claimed that they have an interest in the decision to lift the order due to the effect of migrants coming into the United States. Border authorities have removed 2.4 million migrants using Title 42 since it went into effect.

    "At bottom, the important issues in this case should be decided on the merits, rather than through surrender. A central issue in this case is the costs imposed on the States. Allowing intervention will ensure those interests are represented," the filing noted.

    The migrant crisis has been the center of national news in recent months, largely due to Republican Governors Greg Abbott and Ron DeSantis sending migrants to states and communities that claim to be welcoming of migrants. Abbott recently sent more migrants to Philadelphia and said that his state has sent almost 8,400 migrants to Washington, D.C., over 3,800 to New York City, more than 1,200 to Chicago, and 100 to Philadelphia, as of Monday.

The previous poll on Eastern NC NOW showcased what are many of OUR Constitutional Republic's certain obstacles to remain viable, where the top encumbrance to that continuance as a functioning Republic was the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border. Understanding this overwhelming concern to real America citizens: Do you believe it important to challenge the veracity of those legislated concerns of Democratic Socialists by transporting Illegal Migrants to their Sanctuary cities, counties and states for their direct care?
  Yes; test the depth of their "compassion" by giving Democratic Socialists an opportunity to enact all Sanctuary provisions in their communities to test how much they truly do care.
  No; the Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Project is designed to only inundate "Red States" to begin their Demographic Upheaval for the benefit of we Democratic Socialists, our politics.
  I generally do NOT care about politics, but it is fun watching abject hypocrites squirm; maybe I will start getting more involved.
