(ReclaimingAmerica.net) BREAKING NOW: On the last day of its term, and just moments before Ketanji Brown Jackson was sworn in as the Black woman Supreme Court Justice, the United States Supreme Court ruled that President Joe Biden could terminate former President Donald Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy.
As the New York Post recounts in “Supreme Court rules Biden can end Trump’ Remain in Mexico’ policy”:
“In a major win for the Biden White House, the Supreme Court ruled Thursday that the administration properly ended the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy, which has forced many asylum seekers to wait south of the US border for their immigration hearings.
“The 5-4 majority, led by Chief Justice John Roberts, found that the Department of Homeland Security’s Oct. 29 memo terminating the policy was final.” [emphasis added]
According to Roberts’ decision:
“Nothing prevents an agency from undertaking new agency action while simultaneously appealing an adverse judgment against its original action. That is particularly so under the circumstances of this case.”
Roberts was joined in the majority by conservative Brett Kavanaugh and liberals Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan.
Congressional Republicans immediately slammed the court’s ruling and Biden.
Rep. Richard Hudson (R-NC) tweeted: “The #BidenBorderCrisis is real. May saw the most illegal crossings in a month EVER. Now the Biden admin is forced to house unaccompanied children all the way in North Carolina. Ending proven solutions like the wall, Title 42, and Remain in Mexico only make this crisis worse.”
Rep. Yvette Herrell (R-NM) posted: “The United States of America no longer has a southern border. If human trafficking, drug smuggling, and illegal immigration were bad before, we’re about to see a once-in-a-lifetime disaster unfold under Joe Biden.”
Rep. Andy Biggs (R-Ariz.) posted: “Joe Biden has created the worst border crisis in our nation’s history. Terminating ‘Remain in Mexico’ will only make the crisis worse. Just because the Court says you can doesn’t mean you should.”
