Justices dismiss challenge to “remain in Mexico” policy

On a day on which the court issued major rulings on college sports and securities law, the order list from the justices’ private conference last week made less of a splash on Monday morning.

In Oregon, Columbia County Spotlight reports that following a leadership change and delays due to COVID-19, the planned NEXT Renewable Fuels facility near Clatskanie is expected to be operational in 2024, rather than in late 2021 or early 2022 as originally expected.
