The battle for Donald Trump’s legacy is not over.
According to Fox News, “a coalition of Republican states led by Arizona is urging the Supreme Court to intervene in the legal battle over a Trump-era policy that restricted immigrants who are deemed reliant on welfare from receiving green cards — a policy the Biden administration has since dropped.”
Joe Biden’s Department of Homeland Security (DHS) issued a statement claiming that continuing to defend the rule “is neither in the public interest nor an efficient use of limited government resources.”
However, a conservative Supreme Court may stand in the way.
With Arizona at the helm, the 11 GOP states “are now petitioning the Supreme Court to accept review of the case and have the case heard in full. With a conservative majority on the court, they are likely to feel like the rule has a shot of being upheld,” Fox reports.
“Without any prior warning, the [Biden administration] sprung an unprecedented, coordinated, and multi-court gambit,” the states’ petition reads, according to Fox. “Through it, they attempted to execute simultaneous, strategic surrenders in all pending appeals involving the Rule.”
