(Worthy News) – Justice Samuel Alito late Friday night issued a brief stay on a recent federal judge’s ruling that would reinstate a Trump administration policy requiring asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their cases are processed.
The four-day administrative stay will allow “the full court [to] consider” the Biden administration’s request for a longer stay, wrote Alito, who handles emergency matters from Texas for the court, according to the Huffington Post.

DHS begs Supreme Court to block revival of ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy
The Biden administration made an emergency request to the Supreme Court late Friday asking it to block a lower court ruling requiring restoration of President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy.
Without a stay, Homeland Security will be forced to start pushing illegal immigrants back across the border rather than catch and then release them into the interior of the U.S.
The Biden legal team said having the ability to catch-and-release is critical to its immigration plans, and the federal judge who intervened is trampling on the president’s powers. [ Source: Washington Times (Read More…) ]
