The Supreme Court has delayed a case regarding the Title 42 immigration policy to March 1.
The Supreme Court had previously agreed to hear arguments in February.
"The high court temporarily halted the termination of Title 42 on Dec. 27, allowing the Trump-era policy that permitted the swift expulsion of immigrants under a COVID-19 health policy to remain in place until justices decide on a challenge brought by Republican-led states," reported Washington Examiner.
Supreme Court Delays Again
Arguments were initially supposed to begin in February, although an exact date was never established.
"The high court's involvement stems from 19 GOP-led states that filed an emergency request to keep the policy in place after U.S. District Judge Emmet Sullivan sided with immigration advocates last month who argued the policy is no longer necessary, setting its termination date for Dec. 21," reports Washington Examiner.
"Chief Justice John Roberts initially put a temporary hold on the policy's termination in response to the states' suit, asking the Biden administration to submit its response in the matter," reported Washington Examiner.
There was a 5-4 ruling on Dec. 27 in which five Republican-appointed justices agreed to hear the challenge in the first quarter of 2023.
