US Supreme Court dismisses immigration case

WASHINGTON ( Associated Press) – The US Supreme Court ruled Wednesday that it was wrong to intervene in a dispute over an immigration rule enforced under President Donald Trump that the current administration rejected, prompting the Supreme Court to dismiss the case.

The country’s highest court said it would be involved in the issue of whether several states with Republican governments led by Arizona could legally defend the rule that immigrants should be denied economic aid and other benefits. that he considers a “public charge”.

The Supreme Court heard arguments in February and appeared to have ruled, but on Wednesday it issued an unsigned, one-sentence opinion saying it dismissed the case. It upholds the ruling of lesser precedent in favor of President Joe Biden’s government, that states had no right to interfere.

Chief Justice John Roberts wrote an addendum and said he agreed with the decision not to hear the case because it involved “a large number of issues” outside the Supreme Court.

“It is clear that this hornet’s nest” could prevent a determination in the case “or at least, it would complicate our resolution of that issue,” the magistrate wrote.

Roberts was joined by three other judges from the court’s conservative majority: Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and Neil Gorsuch. Gorsuch was appointed to court by Trump. The other two magistrates appointed by the previous president—Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Connie Barrett—did not express themselves on the matter.

At the center of the matter is a federal law under which an immigrant found to be “of public charge” cannot be granted permanent residency in the United States. The Trump administration significantly expanded the definition of that term to include people who receive a variety of benefits, including food stamps or Medicaid, a financial aid program for the poor. This led to litigation in the courts, but the Supreme Court allowed the policy to stand until the litigation continued.

The Biden administration has scrapped the rule and established new guidelines. The current administration notes that only three people under Trump’s presidency were denied benefits, whose applications were later reevaluated and approved.

Migrant advocacy groups say the rule intimidated immigrants, causing them to deny public benefits for fear that they would hinder their processes to obtain permanent residency.
