This past Friday, the Supreme Court ruling raised questions about the timing of a recent executive order from President Joe Biden, prompting The Federalist’s Sean Davis to ask whether there was a “new leaker” at the court.

President Biden’s executive order, granting legal status of the spouse to immigrants who marry American citizens, has been the cause of much speculation over the past couple days. 

“Is there a new leaker at the Supreme Court? Just days ago, the Biden regime announced a radical new executive order to legalize the immigrant spouses of citizens, even if those immigrants were in the U.S. to commit crimes or were here legally,” Davis points out. “It was very strange timing for such an oddly specific EO.”

Around 10 a.m., Davis posted a screenshot of the court’s opinion, one of several issued Friday morning.

“Have we got a new Supreme Court leaker on our hands?”

The Biden regime recently announced a controversial new executive order that would give legal status to the spouses of citizens, even if those spouses had come to America to engage in terrorism, crime, or were here legally.

“Now we know why: the Supreme Court ruled today in a 6-3 decision that the U.S. is not required to admit immigrant spouses of American citizens in a case involving an MS-13 member whose spouse was a U.S. citizen and who demanded legalization,” Davis continued. “‘From this Nation’s beginnings, the admission of noncitizens into this country was characterized as ‘of favor [and] not right,’ the Court ruled.”

Davis, for his part, concluded that someone in the White House may have been aware of which way the decision was going ahead of Friday’s announcement: “Somebody at the White House was clearly tipped off about the unannounced Supreme Court decision, which explains why the White House rushed out such a shoddily written and argued new executive order to open the border even more: the Biden regime knew how the Supreme Court was going to rule, and it sought to pre-empt the court with its absurd EO. So the question now is: who, exactly, is leaking information on rulings to the Biden White House?”
