The border crisis continues to worsen under Joe Biden and Kamala Harris.
Rather than addressing the actual issues at the border, Democrats continue to go after many of the immigration policies Donald Trump put in place.
And Democrats just got shut down by the U.S. Supreme Court in their latest efforts.
The Supreme Court rejected a lawsuit challenging Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy after Biden ended it earlier this month.
The Washington Examiner reported:
The court in an unsigned order sent the case back to the United States Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit with instructions to toss the case out as moot.
The court yanked oral arguments for the case in February shortly after Biden announced that he planned to wind down the policy.
The Justice Department at the time asked the justices to toss the case.
The case sought to invalidate Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, which was implemented in 2019 by the Department of Homeland Security.
Under it, asylum-seekers were forced to wait in Mexico until immigration courts concluded their hearings.
About 68,000 people were detained in Mexico under the policy, according to the DHS.
The Examiner report added:
Officially known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, the policy was intended to keep track of asylum-seekers fleeing political turbulence in Central American and South American countries.
The DHS in early June ended the policy with a memo claiming that it did not “adequately or sustainably enhance border management.”
Previously, the Justice Department asked the Supreme Court to shut down a case challenging the way in which Trump secured funding for the U.S.-Mexico border wall.
The court in February also took that case off of its argument schedule after Biden vowed to end construction of the border wall.
A whopping 56 Republican lawmakers are calling on Biden to replace Harris as the official tasked with addressing the migrant crisis at the U.S.-Mexico border.
As for Harris, she was given the task of being the “border czar” more than 80 days ago and still has not made her way to the border of the U.S. and Mexico.
Biden announced on March 24 that Harris would lead the administration’s efforts at the border, and she has not visited one time to even hold a press event on the crisis.
Harris is 100% appointed to “handle” the border crisis and she has not visited the border one time since Biden named her.
Arizona Attorney General Mark Brnovich recently took aim at Harris and said she has failed to respond to his invitation to tour the crisis at the US-Mexico border.
“I guess if you were a philosopher you would say no response is a very loud response because we’ve not received any response,” Brnovich said.
Harris needs to “look into the eyes of people being smuggled across the border, being exploited by the cartels and realize this is a humanitarian crisis on so many levels,” Brnovich said.
Days after Biden appointed Harris to oversee his administration’s border responses, Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, a Republican, called her “the worst possible choice.”
He accused Harris of being someone who has “completely trivialized the issue by putting someone in charge who flat out just doesn’t care.”
Also, Sen. Ted Cruz, R-Texas, predicted that Harris “is not going to be able to solve this crisis” after he and 17 other GOP senators visited the border in his home state, adding that the migrant crisis has become Biden’s “biggest political mess.”
Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich says the only reason that Harris was put in charge of the border crisis was that everyone knows “she wouldn’t do anything” about it.”
