WASHINGTON, DC:Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has reportedly temporarily halted the termination of Title 42. The controversial Trump-era immigration policy was set to expire December 21. Roberts, in a brief order, asked the Biden administration to respond to an emergency motion filed by a group of Republican-led states.

Roberts' brief order means that the policy remains in effect until the justices rule on the emergency motion. The policy allows officials to quickly deport migrants at the US border. However, it is not necessary for the order to reflect the final outcome of the case. Last month, a federal district judge had overturned the policy, calling Title 42 "arbitrary and capricious"

“As required by the Supreme Court’s administrative stay order, the Title 42 public health order will remain in effect at this time and individuals who attempt to enter the United States unlawfully will continue to be expelled to Mexico,” the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement following Roberts’ order, according to CNN. “While this stage of the litigation proceeds, we will continue our preparations to manage the border in a safe, orderly, and humane way when the Title 42 public health order lifts.”

This is momentous for Roberts, whose attempt to lobby for abortion rights in the past had failed. He reportedly lobbied fellow conservatives to save the constitutional right. However, the leak of a draft opinion reversing Roe v Wade made caused his efforts to fail.

The Internet has believes that Roberts has finally done the "right thing." "So SCOTUS Chief Justice John Roberts temporarily pauses lifting Title 42 restrictions. Wow, the 1st time a Bush judge did something right. Don’t get use to it," one user wrote, while another said, "Wow! Robert's did? I'm shocked! But there is a huge humanitarian crisis where the border used to be." "Someone is getting BACK to senses!" one user wrote.

One user said, "I’m shocked. I figured there would be so much pressure from the left wanting it lifted that that would be the outcome." "Roberts can be a surprise at times," another said. "Rare SCOTUS win on blocking the lifting of title 42, again, but they're letting millions of illegals flow in regardless. Still, they're realizing how bad it's getting and if they keep it up shit's going to get REAL, and FAST. People won't put up with it anymore," one user wrote.
