President Joe Biden’s Department of Justice (DOJ) requested the Supreme Court to postpone all construction of the Mexico-U.S. border wall.

The administration also requested that the Supreme Court delay any forthcoming oral arguments, as well as the “remain in Mexico” asylum. 

The Supreme Court still plans to hear arguments in the two cases on Feb. 22 and March 1.

These filings from Biden’s DOJ are soon expected to ramp up not only with changes on immigration but also with the Affordable Care Act, voting rights and other policies.

According to Wall Street Journal’s Gerald F. Seib, Biden is the fourth president in a row to attempt a comprehensive immigration reform; however, it’s a complicated issue to tackle, and all the other presidents who tried it failed. 

Biden’s DOJ says they have paused the construction of the border wall so they can evaluate “…the legality of the funding and contracting methods used to construct the wall.”

Former President Donald Trump ran his campaign in 2016 with the message of building the border wall and making the Mexican government pay for it. Although Mexico did not pay for the wall the Trump administration began to construct, the Biden administration has not said whether they will tear the wall down.
