Supreme Court decision on “Remain in Mexico” Policy
The “Remain in Mexico” policy, which orders people seeking asylum in the United States to wait in Mexico, is ordered by the supreme court to be reinstated.
The Higher Court refuses the ruling and sent an order to the Biden administration. This order is to reinstate the remain in Mexico policy for asylum seekers.
The Court bench has a total of three liberal justices, meaning they are the minority on the bench.
Restarting the program will affect quite a few people, but it is still uncertain who would be the ones affected. However, it is important to remember that the migrant protection protocol can be done based on the administration policy.
The Supreme Court
The three dissenting judges in Supreme Court includes Sonia Sotomayor, Elena Kagan, and Stephen Breyer. The judges collectively decide and express their individual views on the ruling for this decision.
While this case was progressing, a federal judge had also sent an order for reinstatement of the program. However, the program was put on hold besides the federal judge order in Texas.
Justice Samuel is also involved in the proceeding of this case and allowed a good amount of delay. Which allows for the court to read between the lines and to understand the appeal from the administration.
The administrative appeal was put on hold while the case was still progressing in the supreme court.
The order from the supreme court that was unsigned stated that the migration protection protocols are capricious and not arbitrary at all. Whereas the case, on the whole, has failed to show the likelihood for success.
However, the American Civil Liberty Union did ask the administration to offer the remain in Mexico policy to be presented with a greater rationale. This is so that it good withstand and prove to be successful based on the overall scrutiny of the court.
