Supreme Court Extends Title 42 for Now, Keeps Border Secure | Eastern North Carolina Now

    Publisher's Note: This post appears here courtesy of the John Locke Foundation. The author of this post is Brittany Raymer.

    With less than 48 hours to go, the Supreme Court of the United States extended the Trump- and COVID-era Title 42 restrictions, which allowed Border Patrol agents to expel the millions trying to get into the country illegally. The request for the extension, which was supposed to end on Dec. 21, came from 19 governors.

    The decision, which was written by Chief Justice John Roberts, was welcomed by Gov. Greg Abbott of Texas, who's state most often deals with the flood of illegal immigrants coming over the border.

    In a Twitter post, Abbott said, "BREAKING: U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice Roberts has HALTED the lifting of Title 42 for now. Texas and other states are insisting that the Court leave Title 42 in place. Today's order is a step in the right direction."

    The continuation of the order is a big relief for towns and cities across Texas. The major of El Paso recently declared a state of emergency over concerns that more immigrants would surge the border after the restriction lifted. He claims that he did it to address the strain that the crossings are already putting on the city's resources.

    "I said from the beginning that I would call [a state of emergency] when I felt that either our asylum-seekers or our community was not safe," Major Oscar Leeser said at a press conference on Saturday at El Paso City Hall. "I really believe that today our asylum-seekers are not safe as we have hundreds and hundreds on the streets, and that's not the way we want to treat people."

    The city will reassess the state of emergency on Dec. 24.

    This has become a bipartisan issue in the Lone Star State, with parties on both side asking for the government to have a plan to address the situation in the days leading up to the initial deadline.

    "They've gotta have something in place," Rep. Henry Cuellar, a Democrat who represents a border area in Texas, said on CBS' "Face the Nation" of the Biden administration's immigration plans for the end of the Title 42 policy. "With all due respect, I've looked at that plan. ... It hasn't worked."

    Illegal immigration is not an issue discussed much in North Carolina, but reports indicate that there may be as many as 325,000 people who are undocumented in the state.

    While many are hard-working and looking to start a new life in this country, there remains serious questions about who is in this country, whether it's a member of a drug cartel or a criminal.

    In September 2020, U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) announced that 19 aliens have committed voter fraud in the state and 12 criminal aliens were arrested on various charges. That represents just a small sample of some of the criminality and voter fraud that could be going on in the Tar Heel State. This infringes on the elections and puts citizens at risk.

    Unfettered immigration is a problem not limited to the border, but across the country.

In what may be the most divisive period in modern American History, even more divisive than the turbulent sixties due to today's lack of patriotism, consider what are the major catalysts causing so much of this calamity of conflict, and vote: What most instigates the division of America, on this day September 20, 2022?
  Racism within our society
  Sex realignment to the detriment of our society.
  Biden /Harris Wide Open Southern Border Policy for the Demographic Upheaval of OUR Constitutional Republic
  Rampant Crime in Democratic controlled cities, and the possible contagion elsewhere
  Covid Pandemic, and its mishandling at the political, and bureaucratic levels.
  The unresolved questions /allegation regarding the flawed 2020 General Election
  January 6th Riot or "Armed Insurrection", depending upon patriotic perspective
  Joe Biden as Divisive Leader; Ineffective and Corrupt Executive
  Failed Education Industry, from an overall perspective, regarding all levels of education.
  Propagandistic Media in complete conflict with the First Amendment's guarantee of Freedom of Speech, and the awesome responsibility of a Free Press..
  "Orangeman Bad!"
  Bureaucracy rushing to a behemoth size, its unjustified expense, and far too often overreach.
  The Weaponized Deep State for political purposes
  A secular ambivalence to all that is real.
  Record number of overdose deaths from opioids and now Fentanyl
  Biden Administration's disastrous Foreign Policy
  Bidenflation /supply chain failure inevitably evolving into stagflation and recession.
  "Ultra MAGA Extremists" freely speaking louder AND LOUDER!

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.
