President Joe Biden is bent on making sure America’s borders are as porous as possible. His latest attempt is through overturning a commonsense Trump-era policy.
The Biden administration has petitioned the U.S. Supreme Court to end the “Remain in Mexico” policy, Breitbart reported. Former President Donald Trump had enacted the policy that required asylum seekers to wait in Mexico for their claims to be processed rather than be admitted into the U.S.
Biden had attempted to do away with the policy, formally dubbed the Migrant Protection Protocols, but both Texas and Missouri sued the administration. A lower court found that Biden’s attempt was unconstitutional.
Now the Biden administration is asking for the high court to overturn that decision. Texas asked for and was denied an extension to prepare for the case, but it may not make it to the court for some time anyway.
“My instinct says they are more likely than not to agree to hear the case this term,” Aaron Reichlin-Melnick, an immigration attorney, told the news outlet. If the court agrees to hear the case, its decision will likely come in June.
The administration is facing two problems with this recent petition, however. The court could outright deny to hear the case at all or, worse yet, strike down Biden’s attempt to abolish the provision altogether.
It’s unclear why such a commonsense rule would be so vehemently opposed, except that the Biden administration seems to favor admitting as many illegal immigrants into the country as possible. The administration was caught transporting illegal immigrants into the interior of the U.S. on clandestine nighttime flights, Fox News reported.
The court will have a chance to decide if Biden’s radical immigration agenda will get the advantage of abolishing this reform. Whether it does or not, it’s clear that Biden will do whatever it takes to admit as many illegal immigrants into the country as he can.
