Supreme Court Orders Biden Admin To Reinstate Trump Immigration Policy

The Supreme Court on Tuesday ordered the Biden administration to reinstate the Trump-era "Remain in Mexico" policy for asylum-seekers for the time being, saying further proceedings will likely show the government failed to give adequate reasons for ending the program as required by law.

Formally known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, the policy requires asylum-seekers to remain in Mexico while immigration authorities review their applications. A federal trial judge and the Fifth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the Homeland Security Department failed to justify its decision to terminate the program. The liberal trio noted their dissent from Tuesday's order.

President Joe Biden's immigration policies have angered conservatives and liberals alike and face legal pressure from both sides. In the last two months, federal trial judges have struck down Biden's priority deportation practices and an Obama-era program that shields people who illegally entered the country as children from deportation. The ACLU is suing the administration for retaining COVID-related restrictions on asylum applications after a months-long closed-door negotiation failed to yield a settlement.

In its emergency appeal to the High Court, acting solicitor general Brian Fletcher warned the justices that an adverse decision would be perceived as political favoritism. During the Trump years, the Supreme Court stepped in repeatedly to allow the former president to implement his preferred immigration policies, as when it lifted a lower court order that blocked Pentagon funding for the border wall.........
