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.
