The Supreme Court on Friday refused a request from the Trump administration to restore newly implemented restrictions that would prevent some migrants who crossed the U.S.-Mexico border illegally from applying for asylum.
In documents first reported by BuzzFeed News, the court denied a motion from the Justice Department following a ruling from the 9th Circuit Court of Appeals earlier this month that rejected the Trump administration’s efforts to delay a judge’s order blocking the new asylum policy.
The decision was a narrow 5-4 ruling, with Chief Justice John Roberts siding with the court’s more liberal justices against the administration’s request for a stay.
