The Supreme Court of the United States has rejected this Tuesday the proposal of President Joe Biden that annulled a measure in immigration policy of the previous Administration that prevented those who applied for asylum stay in the United States pending the resolution of your case.
Judges Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan of the Supreme Court have announced that they have accepted the ruling of Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk, appointed by the former president Donald Trump, which forces the Biden Government to restart the policy of the previous Administration and which has forced almost 70,000 applicants asylum to remain in Mexico while their applications are processed, according to Bloomberg.
Since the beginning of the year, the Department of Homeland Security stopped registrations in Trump’s asylum program and the government announced the admission of thousands of applicants who remain on the other side of the border with Mexico.
In this sense, the Secretary of National Security, Alejandro Mayorkas, formally announced the end of the policy in June, however, states Texas and Missouri they sued to challenge the termination, which was accepted by Kacsmaryk, and now, by the Supreme Court.
Before the announcement, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has issued a statement in which it indicates that it “respectfully disagrees with the decision of Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk and regrets that the Supreme Court has refused to issue a stay.”
It has also reported that it has appealed “the order and will continue to challenge it vigorously”, although it has specified that while “the appeal process continues, it will comply with the order in good faith.”
“DHS remains committed to building a safe, orderly and humane immigration system that upholds our laws and values,” he added.
The Biden Administration has argued that rejecting this policy threatens disrupt operations at the border and create a diplomatic crisis with Mexico.
