Chief Justice John Roberts Jr. joined the U.S. Supreme Court’s liberal wing Friday in refusing to block a California judge’s ruling against enforcement of new policies that restrict asylum-seekers along the southern border.

Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Samuel Alito Jr., Neil Gorsuch and Clarence Thomas voted to grant the Justice Department’s request to stay the ruling.
