Supreme Court allows DHS to continue 'Remain in Mexico' policy for ILLEGALS

The Supreme Court granted a reprieve Wednesday for the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, preserving — for now — the key tool that allowed the government to solve last year’s border crisis.
The justices issued a stay on a lower court ruling that would have dissolved the policy, officially known as the Migrant Protection Protocol, in Arizona and California. The court said the stay would remain in place to give the administration time to argue its case before the high court.
That’s a major relief to Homeland Security officials, who’d feared a massive rush for the border should the MPP be erased.
That’s a particular concern at a time when coronavirus is spreading, with cases in Mexico and beyond, and people from more than 100 countries already arrested at the border so far this year.
“Without proper precautions, which can only happen through orderly, lawful migration, the virus threatens to spread rapidly,” an official told The Washington Times. “Any halting of MPP would exacerbate this threat.”
But immigrant-rights advocates criticized the justices, saying it’s leaving people fleeing violence in jeopardy in Mexico.
