Another Trump Victory – Remain in Mexico Policy Stands

In an 8-1 decision with only the wise Latina dissenting. What a shocker!!

from the Blaze:

The Supreme Court handed President Donald Trump a win on Wednesday with a court order giving his administration a judicial green light to continue enforcement of its “Migrant Protection Protocols,” otherwise known as the “remain in Mexico” policy for the time being.

Last week, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in San Francisco upheld a lower court’s decision blocking the policy from going into effect in Arizona and California — the two border states within its geographical jurisdiction.

That injunction was set to go into effect on Thursday, before the Supreme Court stepped in this week.

“The application for stay presented to Justice Kagan and by her referred to the Court is granted, and the district court’s April 8, 2019 order granting a preliminary injunction is stayed pending the timely filing and disposition of a petition for a writ of certiorari,” the Supreme Court said in a Wednesday order. That means that the lower court’s order blocking the policy won’t go into effect while the related lawsuit works its way through the federal courts.

The order also listed Justice Sonia Sotomayor as the only dissenter from the court’s decision.

Under the protocols, which were announced in December 2018 as an effort to combat the southern border crisis, non-Mexican asylum-seekers who present themselves at the southern border are required to wait in Mexico while their immigration proceedings are sorted out.

Opponents argue that the policy endangers migrants by making them wait out their immigration cases in unsafe conditions in Mexico.
