Thousands of Illegals Camped in Massive Tent City as SCOTUS Preserves Title 42

(Joshua Paladino, Headline USA) The Supreme Court on Tuesday blocked the Biden administration from ending Title 42, a Trump-era health order that empowers Border Patrol to quickly return illegal aliens back to Mexico.

In a 5-4 decision, in which Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the three Democrat appointees in dissent, the high court ordered that the Biden administration must keep Title 42 in place until a final ruling can be made this summer.

Gorsuch said the Supreme Court should have let Title 42 lapse while it hears the case because the COVID-19 scare that caused former President Donald Trump to invoke the health order “has long since lapsed.”

“For my part, I do not discount the States’ concerns,” Gorsuch wrote. “But the current border crisis is not a COVID crisis. And courts should not be in the business of perpetuating administrative edicts designed for one emergency only because elected officials have failed to address a different emergency. We are a court of law, not policymakers of last resort.”

Justice Ketanji Brown Jackson signed onto Gorsuch’s dissent.

As the Supreme Court weighed whether to let President Joe Biden end Title 42, thousands of would-be illegal aliens camped along the US-Mexico border, NBC News reported.

Two different camps in Reynosa, Mexico, had at least 1,300 and 3,000 people in them who planned to illegally cross the border. They have come from around the world, including from Haiti as well as Central and South America.

At the Central Processing Center in El Paso, Border Patrol expected at least 5,000 illegal aliens to come into the city every day, a surge that would have overrun the facility.

“As we know, CPC, central processing center, has a capacity of 1,400. We know that their breaking point is 5,000,” El Paso Deputy City Manager Mario D’Agostino said on Friday. “With this surge, they know that they will not be able to hold it.”

Despite El Paso Mayor Oscar Leeser’s warning that the city’s crisis would “get worse,” the Biden administration planned to end Title 42 and watch southern border cities collapse.
