Arizona Gubernatorial hopeful Kari Lake reacted to the SCOTUS decision to allow the Biden Administration to end the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy; lake says she promises to protect Arizona from threats domestic and external.
“This Supreme Court ruling highlights how crucial it is for Arizona to elect a strong Governor who will enact our Article 1 Powers & protect our border. I WILL defend Arizona from threats —both domestic & external. That starts with finishing the wall,” Lake tweeted.
In a 5-4 ruling on Biden v. Texas, the Supreme Court allowed the Biden administration to end the border policy, according to SCOTUSblog. Chief Justice Roberts delivered the opinion of the court, and Justices Breyer, Sotomayor, Kagan, and Kavanaugh filed a concurring opinion. Justices Alito, Thomas, Gorsuch, and Barrett dissented.
Biden v. Texas originated when Missouri and Texas sued the Biden administration for its “cancellation of the Migrant Protection Protocols, or ‘Remain in Mexico’ Policy,” Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt said in an April press release.
The Supreme Court heard new oral arguments on the case in April where the states urged the court to “uphold the lower courts’ decision courts’ decision and force the Biden Administration to continue their reimplementation of the successful ‘Remain in Mexico’ Policy,” Schmitt added.
However, the Supreme Court’s ruling determined that the Biden administration is within its legal right to terminate the policy.
