The U.S. Supreme Court has now decided to uphold border restrictions tied to the Trump era Title 42 restrictions.

Title 42, a Trump-era immigration policy adopted after the pandemic broke out to promptly remove asylum-seekers at the border, was allowed to continue in place on Tuesday, putting a judge’s rule that would have stopped it last week on hold.

The court granted an emergency request by 19 Republican state attorneys general who wanted to intervene in support of the program by a vote of 5-4.

Conservative Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the court’s three liberals in opposing the delay request.

The intervention of the court prevents what many thought would be an increase in the number of persons attempting to enter the United States at a time when border crossings are already high.

Without the regulation, persons seeking asylum might enter the United States and wait for years for a court date if they pass their initial interview with authorities.
