The Trump administration can move forward with a rule to make it harder for immigrants who rely on public assistance to gain legal status while a court challenge plays out, the Supreme Court ruled on Monday.
"The real problem here is the increasingly common practice of trial courts ordering relief that transcends the cases before them," Gorsuch wrote in the opinion, which was joined by Justice Clarence Thomas. "Whether framed as injunctions of ‘nationwide,’ ‘universal,’ or ‘cosmic’ scope, these orders share the same basic flaw — they direct how the defendant must act toward persons who are not parties to the case."
