WASHINGTON (Reuters) – U.S. Supreme Court Justice Samuel Alito on Monday extended a temporary pause on a Republican-backed Texas law allowing state law enforcement authorities to arrest people suspected of crossing the U.S.-Mexico border illegally.

Alito’s action gives the justices more time to weigh a request by President Joe Biden’s administration to freeze a judicial order allowing the Texas law to take effect while its challenge proceeds in the lower courts.
