Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts sided with his left-leaning colleagues Friday; upholding a previous ruling that effectively blocked President Trump from cracking down on asylum seekers along the United States’ southern border.
“Chief Justice John Roberts joined his four more liberal colleagues Friday in ruling against the administration in the very case in which President Donald Trump had derided the ‘Obama judge’ who first blocked the asylum policy,” writes the Associated Press.
The 5-4 ruling saw Justice Brett Kavanaugh and three other conservative judges agreeing with the Trump administration.
The court issued no official opinion or explanation of their decision.
