The Supreme Court has dealt a defeat to President Trump. The Washington Examiner reports:
The Supreme Court rejected a Trump administration request to allow it to enforce its new policy effectively prohibiting asylum for migrants who illegally cross the southern border.
Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh, the newest member of the court, would have granted the Trump administration’s request to halt a lower court ruling that blocked the Trump administration from enforcing its new policy, according to the order from the court Friday.
Chief Justice John Roberts joined with the court’s liberal wing to deny the administration’s request.
In a filing with the court last week, Solicitor General Noel Francisco asked the justices to put on hold an injunction from the U.S. district court in San Francisco that blocked the administration from enforcing its asylum policy.
Trump will have to push for further legislation if he hopes to secure the border.
