WASHINGTON – On Wednesday, the U.S. Supreme Court allowed the ‘stay in Mexico’ border policy at the request of second-term presidential contender and current president of the United States; Donald Trump. This policy requires people who are waiting on refugee status to remain to wait at the southern border in Mexico instead of waiting at immigrant sanctuaries in the U.S. All of these peoples’ cases are to be examined in immigration courts before entering the United States. Trump administration abruptly asked the Supreme Court to step in and vote on it after it was denied by an appeals court. The stated purpose of this policy is to reduce the movement of people traveling from Central America to the United States, especially during the worldwide Coronavirus pandemic.
