The Supreme Court, via Justice Samuel Alito, just temporarily blocked a judge’s order calling for an immediate reinstatement of the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy.

Via Fox News:

In a decision Friday night, the U.S. Supreme Court temporarily blocked a judge’s order calling for the reinstatement of the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” immigration policy following a halt by President Biden.

Justice Samuel Alito issued a temporary stay that will be in effect until Tuesday night so he and the other Supreme Court justices can review the filings submitted in connection with the case, The Associated Press reported.

Alito’s stay came one day after the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 5th Circuit in New Orleans denied a Biden administration request that the reinstatement of the Trump-era policy be delayed.

On Aug. 13 in Texas, a federal judge sided with the attorneys general from Texas and Missouri, who had filed a lawsuit seeking the reinstatement of “Remain in Mexico,” which is also known as the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP).

The attorneys general had argued that the Biden administration’s move to end the Trump-era policy was a violation of the Administrative Procedures Act (APA).

The Supreme Court has quickly become a disappointment and seems determined to allow the Biden administration to do practically whatever it wants.

While we are big supporters of former President Trump, it does appear that his Supreme Court picks have left a lot to be desired.

Justice Brett Kavanaugh and Justice Amy Coney Barrett in particular continue to disappoint and seem more interested in getting invited to the right parties and social events than in administering actual justice.

While Justice Neil Gorsuch does appear to be a fair judge who believes the Constitution is the supreme law of the land, time will ultimately tell.
