SCOTUS latest immigration ruling

The U.S. Supreme Court late Wednesday gave the Trump administration permission to enforce its toughest restriction yet on asylum seekers at the southern border, even though a lawsuit to stop the new policy is still working its way through the lower courts.

As a result, the government can now refuse to consider a request for asylum from anyone who failed to apply for it in another country after leaving home but before coming here. The order means, for instance, that migrants from Honduras, Guatemala, and El Salvador cannot seek asylum in the U.S. if they didn't first ask for it in Mexico

While this looks good on the surface, I predict two outcomes of this ruling. 

1) Mexico's southern border snaps closed like steel trap. Does Mexico even offer asylum to refugees? 

2) Mexico denies asylum seekers ASAP so the caravans keep traveling north and we have to deal with it once again. 

When our governing officials dismiss due process as mere semantics, when they exercise powers they don’t have and ignore duties they actually bear, and when we let them get away with it, we have ceased to be our own rulers.

    The immigration lawyers will find a way around it or they will just sneak in and hide in a sanctuary city

    Since SCOTUS had previously said that the Ex branch was the sole authority on immigration policy, this makes sense.
    It's boring, and your lack of creativity knows no bounds.
