Supreme Court Allows Texas to Arrest Illegals in the State

The Supreme Court is sometimes right.  On Tuesday it was reported that the Supreme Court ruled that Texas can arrest illegal aliens in the state. 

On Tuesday it was reported that Supreme Court got this one right. The U.S. Supreme Court handed Texas a major win on Tuesday by allowing Texas to enforce a law that enables local law enforcement officials to arrest individuals who are suspected of illegally crossing the southern border between the United States and Mexico.

“In a 6-3 decision SCOTUS allows Texas to begin enforcing SB4 that allows the arrest of illegal immigrants,” Gov. Greg Abbott (R-Texas) tweeted Tuesday afternoon. “We still have to have hearings in the 5th circuit federal court of appeals. But this is clearly a positive development.”

The Washington Post reported that a lower court judge initially blocked the enforcement of the state’s law, which was intended to take effect on March 5. The judge claimed that the law was unconstitutional and “could open the door to each state passing its own version of immigration laws.” However, the U.S. 5th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the lower court’s decision, leading the Biden administration to appeal its case to the Supreme Court.

On Tuesday the Supreme Court got this one right.
