The Supreme Court has just delivered a major blow to Biden tonight over Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ border policy. The Supreme Court has ordered, in effect, that the policy must be reinstated:

Here’s a bit more on it from Newsmax:
The Supreme Court on Tuesday refused to block a court ruling ordering the Biden administration to reinstate a Trump-era policy that forces people to wait in Mexico while seeking asylum in the U.S.
With the three liberal justices in dissent, the court said the administration likely violated federal law in its efforts to rescind the program informally known as Remain in Mexico.
A federal judge in Texas had previously ordered that the program be reinstated last week. Both he and the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals refused the administration’s request to put the ruling on hold.
Justice Samuel Alito ordered a brief delay to allow the full court time to consider the administration’s appeal.
Wow. All six justices ruled together on this, which is saying something given that Justice Roberts is such a flip-flopper. Well done Missouri and Texas. I’m sure Biden is pitching a tantrum over this ruling given that he dumped in on his first day in office.
