Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. on Friday pro tem put a hold to a ruling from a Federal Judge in Texas that required the Biden Administration to restore a Trump-Era immigration program that forced asylum seekers that arrived at the Nation’s Southern border to wait for approval in Mexico.

Justice Alito granted the Biden Administration an “administrative stay” that meant to preserve the current situation for the Court to consider the application.

The Stay lasts till August 24 unless the Court takes any further action. Justice Alito ordered the States questioning the program, Texas and Missouri, to revert to the Biden Administration’s arguments latest by Tuesday evening.

On Thursday, a Federal Appeals Panel in Texas canceled the Biden Administration’s attempt to halt the Judge’s ruling, which made it mandatory for the reinstatement of the asylum Policy, commonly known as Remain in Mexico and orderly as the Migrant Protection Protocols Program.

“Those who are opposed to the Biden administration’s immigration agenda are taking every and any opportunity to take policy questions and have them answered in favorable Courts,” stated Tom K. Wong, the director of the U.S. Immigration Policy Center at the University of California, San Diego.

The Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton, celebrated the pro tem Injunction on Mr. Biden’s arrest priorities, labeling it “another Texas victory against Biden”.
