The Supreme Court temporarily blocked enforcement of Texas’s controversial immigration law allowing state law enforcement to arrest and detain those suspected of entering the country illegally.

Justice Alito issued an administrative hold until March 13 to further review the case, pausing the law from taking effect.

The Biden administration and immigration groups had asked the Court to block the law, set to go into effect March 10, arguing it would profoundly alter the 150-year status quo around immigration enforcement being a federal responsibility.

A federal judge had previously blocked the law, concerned it could open doors to each state passing its own immigration measures.

“If allowed to proceed, SB 4 could open the door to each state passing its own version of immigration laws,” Judge David Alan Ezra wrote.

The appeals court stayed the ruling but said the law would take effect this week absent Supreme Court intervention, which it provided with the temporary hold.
