The Supreme Court rejected the Biden administration’s request for the Court to reverse a district-court order requiring the Biden administration to reinstate the Trump administration’s “remain in Mexico” policy, which requires asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while they wait for a hearing in U.S. immigration court.
“The Supreme Court on Tuesday said the Biden administration likely violated federal law in trying to end a Trump-era program that forces people to wait in Mexico while seeking asylum in the U.S,” the Associated Press reported.
“After the Biden administration ended the [remain in Mexico] policy, Texas and Missouri went to federal court in Texas to challenge that decision,” SCOTUSblog reported. “The states argue that the decision to terminate the policy violated federal immigration law and the federal law governing the procedures that federal agencies must follow. They also contend that, without the policy, large numbers of migrants can enter the United States based on dubious asylum claims, imposing costs on the states.”
“A federal district judge agreed with the states and ordered the Biden administration to reinstate the policy by Aug. 21. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit declined to put the ruling on hold to give the government time to appeal,” they continued.
On Friday, the Biden administration went to the Supreme Court, “Justice Samuel Alito, who handles emergency requests from Texas, briefly paused the district court’s order to allow the justices to consider the request. Alito put the order on hold until 11:59 p.m. on Tuesday and ordered the states to respond by 5 p.m. Tuesday afternoon – signaling that the court would act quickly.”
The Biden administration’s temporary end of the “remain in Mexico” policy is considered of the main reasons illegal immigration levels have reached record levels.
In July, the number of migrants hit the highest level on record since the Department of Homeland Security began keeping track in 2001. Illegal immigration levels first broke the 20-year record in March, and then the record was broken again every following month.
