The losses keep piling up for Joe Biden and in addition to being routed by the Taliban in Afghanistan, the beleaguered president has also suffered a major setback at home courtesy of the Supreme Court.
In a blow to Biden and his fellow Democrats’ dreams of a borderless society, the nation’s highest court delivered a Tuesday ruling that the administration must reinstate former President Trump’s”remain in Mexico” policy, thwarting an administration effort to block the decision of a lower court that re-implemented Trump’s Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) while a lawsuit played out in the courts.
Biden suspended the policy on his first day in office as he issued a flurry of executive orders immediately after being inaugurated, many of them reversing his predecessor’s tough stance on illegal immigration and resulting in an ongoing humanitarian disaster with the southern border being overwhelmed by migrants, some of whom have been infected with COVID yet are not subjected to the same quarantine rules as citizens.
Texas and Missouri struck back by filing the lawsuit against the administration in April and Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas officially canceled the policy in June, claiming that it was not “consistent with this administration’s vision and values and would be a poor use of the Department’s resources.”
Following the ruling of a federal judge in Texas that the program be reinstated and the subsequent refusal by the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to put the order on hold, Biden’s Justice Department went to the Supreme Court but was rejected 6-3 in a stinging rebuke with only the three liberal justices in opposition.
The reaction was one of jubilance from Republicans, especially those in Texas, the state most negatively affected by the Biden administration’s open borders policies.
Texas Governor Greg Abbott praised the SCOTUS for halting “Biden’s skirting of immigration laws” and said that the results would stem the tide of advancing illegals.
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.

Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton also spiked the ball as did others who watched in horror as Biden continued to ignore the law.

HUGE WIN. The Supreme Court is forcing the Biden administration to reinstate President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy.

MAJOR: the Supreme Court just ordered Joe Biden to reinstate the Trump “Remain in Mexico” policy, which helped keep our border secure by cutting down on those gaming the asylum system.
In the midst of a terrible week for American safety, some good news.

Biden’s lawless & disastrous decision to end the Remain in Mexico Policy has led to over 1 million illegal aliens crossing our southern border.

Also cheering the ruling was Florida Governor Ron DeSantis, who has emerged as a serious threat to Democrats in 2024 if Trump chooses not to run again.
SCOTUS handed down yet another blow to the Biden Administration’s reckless border policies. Reinstating the Remain in Mexico policy that Biden unlawfully rescinded will protect our communities and slow the influx of illegal aliens and illicit drugs at the southern border.

Not so happy was the Department Of Homeland Security which issued a bitterly worded statement decrying the ruling and vowing to continue abusing the courts.
According to the statement:
“The Department of Homeland Security respectfully disagrees with the district court’s decision and regrets that the Supreme Court declined to issue a stay. 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. Alongside interagency partners, DHS has begun to engage with the Government of Mexico in diplomatic discussions surrounding the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP). DHS remains committed to building a safe, orderly, and humane immigration system that upholds our laws and values.”
It increasingly appears that the Supreme Court will be the last line of defense against a rogue administration and a president who rules like a dictator and Trump’s ability to put three conservatives on the bench may be the deciding factor in the war for America’s future against those who have contempt for all that the nation has stood for.
