US Supreme Court allows Texas to enforce controversial law on arresting, deporting illegal migrants

Washington: The US Supreme Court allowed a controversial Republican-backed Texas law to take effect that gives law enforcement broad powers to arrest people suspected of illegally crossing the US-Mexico border, rejecting a bid by the Biden administration to block the legislation. The court has a 6-3 conservative majority and three of its liberal justices dissented, saying the law turns immigration enforcement, generally under the ambit of the federal government, on its head.Washington: The US Supreme Court allowed a controversial Republican-backed Texas law to take effect that gives law enforcement broad powers to arrest people suspected of illegally crossing the US-Mexico border, rejecting a bid by the Biden administration to block the legislation.
