Supreme Court turns against Joe Biden in latest immigration case

The Supreme Court appears to be ready to turn against the Biden administration in a major case involving immigration.

The case addresses which people can be deported first in a legal pleading involving Homeland Security and the states of Texas and Louisiana.

The details

“At the heart of the dispute is a September 2021 memo from Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas that laid out priorities for the arrest, detention, and deportation of certain non-citizens, reversing efforts by former President Donald Trump to increase deportations,” CNN reported in February.

“Several of the conservative justices on Tuesday seemed ready to rule in favor of the states on a major threshold issue: whether Texas and Louisiana had the legal right to bring the challenge in the first place," it added.

The arguments

"In addressing whether the DHS guidelines were in conflict with two provisions of federal law, Justices John Roberts, Samuel Alito, and Brett Kavanaugh cited that the law does note some immigrants “shall” be taken into custody or removed from the country, which appeared to suggest they were skeptical of the Biden administration’s assumed discretion," the Conservative Brief reported.

"The case comes as the Biden administration has come under heavy fire for its lax immigration policies that have created what many have called a 'crisis' on the U.S.-Mexico border," it added.

"In fiscal 2020, the last full year of the Trump administration, the agency aimed to deport 151,000 convicted criminal illegal immigrants, and deported just over 100,000," Fox News reported.

"In fiscal 2021, the target was 97,440 and just 39,149 were removed. By 2022, the first full fiscal year of the Biden administration, the target had dropped to 91,500 and just over 38,000 had been deported," it added.

By 2024, only 29,000 deportations are estimated per year for convicted criminal illegal immigrants. This does not include many additional immigrants illegally entering the country without a criminal record.

The latest case could signal an important change to the damage at the border under the Biden administration's policies.

If so, it will still come nearly three years too late, with many illegal immigrants now inside the country as a result of Biden's actions.
