The Supreme Court of the United States maintains Title 42, the norm that allows deporting migrants 'on hot'


The high court's decision is a setback for Biden's immigration policy and agrees with the 19 States that had asked that it not be repealed

The Supreme Court of the United States has decided this Tuesday to keep Title 42 in force, a rule established by Donald Trump when he was president, and which allows the expulsion of migrants on the spot.

Trump dusted off the measure arguing health reasons, at the beginning of the pandemic, to prevent the spread of the coronavirus at a time when borders around the world were closed.

Almost three years later, with the virus reasonably controlled (and the borders, again, open), the Joe Biden Administration receives a new setback in its repeated attempts to repeal the norm.

This is the last judicial setback that it has received in immigration matters.

The Supreme Court, with a conservative majority, has voted 5-4.

The decision leaves thousands of immigrants in limbo.

The news is a victory for the coalition of 19 republican states that last Monday, December 19, presented a motion for the Supreme Court to postpone the decision, which was scheduled for that Wednesday, to repeal the controversial health standard that has been used to control the flow on the southern border of the United States.

According to the governors of those territories, the opposite would have caused an unmanageable flow of migrants.

The Supreme Court judges have announced that they will study the case in depth next year.

The oral hearing is scheduled for the month of February.

Until then, the hot ejects will continue.

The three progressive magistrates, Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and the recently incorporated Ketanji Brown Jackson, have voted against the measure.

To that bloc has been added one of the conservative judges appointed by Trump, Neil Gorsuch.
