A federal appeals court has rejected the Biden administration’s bid to end Trump’s remain in Mexico policy.
The 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals was ruling on a challenge to Biden’s plan brought by Texas and Missouri. The New York Post reports:
In Monday’s ruling, the appeals court wrote that the Department of Homeland Security “claims the power to implement a massive policy reversal — affecting billions of dollars and countless people — simply by typing out a new Word document and posting it on the internet.
No input from Congress, no ordinary rulemaking procedures, and no judicial review. DHS has come nowhere close to shouldering its heavy burden to show that it can make law in a vacuum,” the judges wrote.
Last week, in compliance with the federal judge’s ruling to restore the policy, the Biden administration began sending the first asylum seekers back to Mexico.
This isn’t the first time that Biden’s attempt to open the borders has been rejected, and the court’s strong language must be particularly galling for open borders hard-liners.
The fact remains that we’re still a nation of laws – as much as Biden and Co. would like to deny it.
