Praise! SCOTUS Protects Border
Mere hours before Title 42 was supposed to end, the Supreme Court extended it to protect our border. Praise God!
From Daily Mail. The Supreme Court ruled by a 5-4 vote to keep Title 42 in place just hours ahead of its planned midnight Wednesday end.

The Covid-era public health policy that allows border agents to immediately expel migrants will now remain in place until legal battles involving its end play out in court.
Agents will now be able to use the policy to expel border crossers for at least the next several months, leaving an onslaught of migrants who were expected to rush the U.S.-Mexico border after Title 42 was lifted in limbo.
Justice Neil Gorsuch joined the more liberal justices Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan and Ketanji Brown Jackson to vote against keeping it in place.
The high court agreed to hear oral arguments in February on whether 19 GOP-led states should be allowed to intervene in defense of the policy in lower courts. A final decision is due by June.
Republican state officials had said a large increase in migrants would burden their states, giving them the right to intervene and argue on behalf of Title 42. …
Tuesday’s decision puts a judge’s decision to allow the Trump-era policy to end on hold. Title 42 has been used to expel more than 2.4 million migrants since 2020. …
Sullivan’s ruling was due to go into effect December 21 before the court extended it to the 27, then until the legal battle is through.
States led by Republican attorneys general of Arizona and Louisiana filed an emergency request last week after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit turned down their request to intervene in the case to argue against its end.
Biden administration officials have repeatedly insisted that the federal government is ready for the end of Title 42, but Republicans and even some Democrats have claimed that President Joe Biden nor his advisers are grasping the full urgency of the situation. …
Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar acknowledged to the high court last week that ending the policy would pose a challenge but said there’s no basis to keep Covid-era rules in place.
‘The government in no way seeks to minimize the seriousness of that problem. But the solution to that immigration problem cannot be to extend indefinitely a public-health measure that all now acknowledge has outlived its public-health justification,’ Prelogar wrote in a filing with the Supreme Court.

Father, we pray for the protection of our borders. Title 42 was an emergency measure but since we are still in an emergency situation regarding the border crisis, I pray that it would be extended as long as it is needed to prevent the invasion of our country.
I’m praying with Intercessors of America daily for a return to our Constitution and its moral laws to be obeyed by our government and our nation’s citizens. Likewise, for all the prayers by I.O.F. members for a much needed revival and world peace in this coming year of 2023.
