Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich Fights for the Continuation of Title 42

PHOENIX – Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich filed an emergency stay application today, asking the Supreme Court of the United States (SCOTUS) to keep Title 42 in place. This comes after the D.C. Circuit denied a similar request last week.

“Getting rid of Title 42 will recklessly and needlessly endanger more Americans and migrants by exacerbating the catastrophe that is occurring at our southern border,” said Attorney General Mark Brnovich. “Unlawful crossings are estimated to surge from 7,000 per day to as many as 18,000.”

In November, General Brnovich asked the United States District of Columbia District Court to permit a group of states led by Arizona and Louisiana to intervene in Huisha-Huisha v. Mayorkas, a case in which a judge terminated the Title 42 policy. The states tried to intervene but were denied, so now they are asking for an emergency stay pending review from SCOTUS.
