Supreme Court to Biden: Abide by “Remain in Mexico” border policy
The U.S. Supreme Court refused an appeal from the Biden administration to dump the “Remain in Mexico” policy implemented by former President Donald Trump.
The order from the Supreme Court said, “The application for a stay presented to Justice Alito … is denied. The applicants have failed to show a likelihood of success on the claim that the memorandum rescinding the Migrant Protection Protocols was not arbitrary and capricious.”
Since the policy was enacted, it has required asylum seekers to stay in Mexico while awaiting their hearing in the U.S.

Louisiana judge blocks school from requiring vaccinations
The case came after three students objected to the use of aborted fetal-cell lines in the vaccines’ development. Before the District Court ruling, the school placed certain requirements on the students with “religious exemptions.”
Unbelievably, these onerous requirements include using an app that actually provides other students and teachers a tracker for their whereabouts. Unvaccinated students were also required to disclose their “vaccination status” to other students, giving fellow students an opt-out from involvement with unvaccinated students.
