The Supreme Court issued an order late Tuesday that rejected efforts to block Donald Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy, ruling the federal government must re-implement the plan that was ended by Joe Biden during his first days in the White House.
“The high court’s conservative supermajority denied the Biden administration’s emergency request to continue the suspension of a federal judge’s order that requires U.S. border officials to reinstate the so-called ‘Remain-in-Mexico’ program,” reports CBS News.
“Since the current hold on the lower court judge’s ruling expires at midnight on Tuesday, the Biden administration will be legally mandated to implement the Trump-era border rule on Wednesday,” adds the outlet.
BREAKING: The U.S. Supreme Court tells the Biden Administration to reinstate the "Remain in Mexico" policy put in place by the Trump Admin.
This halts Biden's skirting of immigration laws & will reduce the record number of migrants entering illegally.

“The Department of Homeland Security respectfully disagrees with the district court’s decision and regrets that the Supreme Court declined to issue a stay,” the department said. “DHS has appealed the district court’s order and will continue to vigorously challenge it. As the appeal process continues, however, DHS will comply with the order in good faith.”
“The government must take all steps available to fully end this illegal program, including by re-terminating it with a fuller explanation,” said Omar Jadwat, the director of American Civil Liberties Union’s immigrants rights project. “What it must not do is use this decision as cover for abandoning its commitment to restore a fair asylum system.”

100% KENNEDY: Biden’s Immigration Plan Like ‘Giving Whiskey and Car Keys to a Teenager’
Senator John Kennedy perfectly summed up the Biden administration’s response to the spiraling border crisis Tuesday; saying the plan is like “giving whiskey and car keys to a teenager.”
“I think that the reason the vice president went to Guatemala and met with President [Alejandro] Giammattei is to offer him billions and billions of American taxpayer dollars to try to make his country better, and with no disrespect but that’s like giving whiskey and car keys to a teenager,” Kennedy told “Fox & Friends.”

“President Giammattei is an authoritarian. He presides over a corrupted administration. They’re probably going to steal the money. Corruption is rampant,” Kennedy continued. “Now, you don’t have to be Einstein’s cousin to figure all of this out.”
100% KENNEDY: The Only Geniuses in Biden’s Dept. of Homeland Security ‘Are the Visitors’
Senator John Kennedy ripped the Biden administration’s handling of the southern border Monday after learning the White House is paying $2 billion to STOP wall construction; calling the move “a crime against nature and intelligence.”
“I read the article about President Biden, Biden’s decision to pay the contractors $2 billion not to build the wall, not to finish the wall, and here’s my conclusion about that,” Kennedy told “Fox & Friends.”
“What do you call a genius in President Biden’s Homeland Security Department? A visitor,” Kennedy quipped.
“What he’s doing is a crime against nature and intelligence,” he added.
“Border walls work and we’ve had a border wall for 30 years in America,” Kennedy said. “Every president since then has supported it including President [Barack] Obama and President [Bill] Clinton, except President Biden. I think the conclusion is almost inescapable, folks, that President Biden believes in open borders.”

Video emerged on social media Thursday apparently showing a group of Central American migrants being escorted across the border by Federal Agents and placed into waiting vehicles operated by Border Patrol.
“NEW: More groups of migrants being walked through the border gate to a waiting Border Patrol van here in Del Rio this morning. This is one of several groups we’ve seen come through today. Our drone team in RGV says 300+ have already crossed in La Joya, TX as of 9am,” posted Fox Los Angeles’ Bill Melugin.

This group of Haitian men just walked through the border gate and turned themselves in to Border Patrol. We have seen hundreds of Haitians arriving here in Del Rio this week. The flow of migrants showing up is almost nonstop every day unless there’s a big storm. @FoxNews pic.twitter.com/KmHcYccLul
