Unlike Trump, Biden cannot lean on conservative Supreme Court to keep agenda alive | Reuters

Unlike his Republican predecessor Donald Trump, whose administration sought to rush cases to a U.S. Supreme Court it considered friendly territory, Biden’s team may not be able to count on a sympathetic audience among the conservative justices who hold sway on the nation’s top judicial body.

The Jan. 22 lawsuit was filed by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton, a staunch Republican ally of Trump, challenging Biden’s 100-day moratorium on deportation of many immigrants. The judge in the case on Tuesday temporarily blocked Biden’s action while the litigation continues, with the potential that the matter could end up at the Supreme Court.

If Biden can't count on the Supreme Court, I consider that a feature and not a bug.
