The US Supreme Court sided with the Trump administration Wednesday; ruling the White House can continue its “Remain in Mexico” policy for those seeking asylum-status in the United States.
“The Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals had said a week earlier that it would block the policy in Arizona and California, the two border states where its authority extends. The Trump administration then turned to the Supreme Court for relief,” reports Fox News.
“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 an order.
The policy requires all immigrants requesting asylum inside the United States remain in Mexico during the application process.
Wait times can last anywhere between six months and two years.
“We are gratified that the Supreme Court granted a stay, which prevents a district court injunction from impairing the security of our borders and the integrity of our immigration system,” a DOJ spokesman said.

AMBASSADOR AOC? Ocasio-Cortez ‘Apologizes’ to Immigrants on ‘Behalf of the United States of America’
Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez appointed herself Ambassador of the United States Wednesday; apologizing to immigrants on “behalf of the United States of America” for the country’s “dehumanizing policies.”
“I’d like to apologize to you on behalf of the United States of America for the dehumanizing policies that they are pursuing, that are frankly targeting you, and targeting many people in the United States,” said Ocasio-Cortez.
“We’re fighting for a better country that we can be proud of when it comes to how we treat all people and understand the circumstances that they’re coming from,” she added.

Ocasio-Cortez made similar comments during ex-ICE boss Tom Homan’s testimony, when the immigration official slammed her “hatred” towards law enforcement.
“In my 34 years, I’ve never seen such hate toward a law enforcement agency in my life that you want to abolish them rather than do your job and legislate,” said Homan.
“Your time is expired,” fired-back AOC, slamming her gavel.

The United States Supreme Court sided with the Trump administration Wednesday; allowing the White House to impose new restrictions on asylum applicants as more legal cases are decided in the lower courts.
“The Supreme Court on Wednesday allowed the Trump administration to bar most Central American migrants from seeking asylum in the United States, while the legal fight plays out in the courts,” reports the New York Times.
“The Supreme Court, in a brief, unsigned order, said the administration may enforce new rules that generally forbid asylum applications from migrants who have traveled through another country on their way to the United States without being denied asylum in that country.
The vote was 7-2, with liberal Justices Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sonia Sotomayor dissenting the decision, writing “Once again, the Executive Branch has issued a rule that seeks to upend longstanding practices regarding refugees who seek shelter from persecution.”
The case will likely return to the Supreme Court for a final decision later this year.
