The United States Supreme Court has made another splash by deciding to hear two cases that the Biden administration wanted to keep out of the court.
One case focuses on immigration seeking to revive a rule that screens immigrants who may be government-dependent. The other case could possibly reduce the reach of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).
The decision to hear these cases comes after a rise in illegal immigrants coming through our southern borders and the Biden administration developing a new strategy to fight climate change.
Conservative Brief further reported on the situation:
The court also decided to hear West Virginia v. EPA, which involves energy-producing states and coal companies accusing the EPA of a power grab. States claim the EPA has exceeded its authority to limit carbon emissions, which environmentalists allege contribute to climate change.
Beyond that, the court has already delivered a slew of powerful rulings this month. Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has secured a major victory from the Supreme Court. The nation’s highest court ruled 6-3 that a law limiting how much money raised after an election a campaign can use to repay loans from the candidate was unconstitutional.
In a separate case, the Court also ruled against an immigrant who was seeking to avoid deportation as one conservative Justice sided with liberals in dissent. In a 5-4 vote, the court kept in place an appellate court decision against a man who has been in the United States illegally since the 1990s.
SCOTUS Justice Amy Coney Barrett spoke for the majority, “Federal courts have a very limited role to play in this process. With an exception for legal and constitutional questions, Congress has barred judicial review of the Attorney General’s decisions denying discretionary relief from removal.”
The Supreme Court has made big waves in recent months with their decision to overturn Roe v Wade and now announcing they will be hearing the cases regarding immigration and energy.
