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. read more

Imagine you are a liberal judge on the federal bench. You know that the entire political system, which includes all three branches of government and both political parties, vests you with unlimited power to dictate policy with an injunction. Regardless of the law, Constitution, rules of standing for a judicial case, past and recent Supreme Court precedent, political fallout, or national security consequences, you can declare an opinion and have that policy unquestionably become “the law of the land.” Why wouldn’t you try your hand at being a judicial version of Kim Jong-un?

At some point, we should stop blaming the judges for legislating with impunity and start blaming the other branches for not only ceding that power, but actively giving effect to the judges’ usurpations of law.

Of the nearly 50,000 who were under the Remain in Mexico Program in September, just 11 individuals were granted asylum into the U.S., The San Diego Union-Tribune reported.

Remain in Mexico, also known as Migrant Protection Protocols, requires asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their claims are processed in the U.S. immigration court system.

Democrats have called for the defunding of Remain in Mexico, but the Department of Homeland Security has touted the program as vital to controlling the border crisis. read more
