SCOTUS Cancels Arguments in Republican Bid to Keep Border Expulsions
The policy, known as Title 42, was implemented by Trump's administration
Today, the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) canceled scheduled arguments in a case in which Republicans sought to keep in place a policy introduced under former President Donald Trump that has let American officials quickly expel hundreds of thousands of migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border.
The policy, known as Title 42, was implemented by Trump's administration in March 2020 - early in the COVID-19 pandemic - as a measure tied to a public health emergency.
The justices removed it from their argument calendar after the Justice Department told them on Feb. 7 the case would become moot because Title 42 will expire in light of an announcement by President Joe Biden's administration that the recognition of a COVID-19 public health emergency will end effective May 11.
