Cert Petitions of the Week: Federal funding for sanctuary cities and another dispute about the border wall
Andrew Hamm for SCOTUSblog reports on recently filed certiorari petitions asking the Supreme Court to delve further into issues of immigration policy. One group of cases challenges the Trump administration’s attempt to crack down on so-called sanctuary cities. Another case involves certain construction projects that are part of the U.S./Mexico border wall.
De-funding sanctuary cities and building the border wall both are central Trump administration immigration policies. I imagine that the Supreme Court immigration docket will change in a Biden administration.
