Supreme Court to Review Key Trump Immigration Cases

SCOTUS

The Supreme Court agreed on Monday to review two controversial immigration policies from the Trump administration – the construction of a southern US border wall using diverted funds from the Pentagon, and a requirement that those seeking asylum at the border wait in Mexico while their cases are considered.

The justices will hear an appeal from the Department of Justice regarding a 2019 lower court ruling which found that the latter policy likely violated federal immigration law, according to Reuters.

The program, called Migrant Protection Protocols, remains in effect because the Supreme Court in March put the lower court’s decision to block the policy on hold while the legal battle continues. – Reuters
