A Supreme Court showdown over Trump’s legacy ends with a whimper: Four major cases went up in smoke after Biden abandoned Trump policies.

Ian Millhiser on Vox reviews the four cases involving challenges to Trump administration immigration policies that the Supreme Court has recently dismissed (with the support of the Biden administration).  The dismissal of the public charge case is the latest.

The number of immigration cases before the high Court has been thinned.  John Fritze for USA Today notes that "the cases now pending at the nation's highest court are more likely to have started under former President Barack Obama and to involve technical matters rather than big picture policy questions."  Examples include Pereida v. Wilkinson, the cancellation of removal case decided earlier this month, and Sanchez v. Mayorkas, a case addressing whether the immigration statute permits a Temporary Protected Status recipient is eligible for adjustment of status.
