Immigration was a scorching topic at the Supreme Court last year. With Trump gone, that's changed.

Less than two months after President Donald Trump left office immigration has fizzled as an issue at the Supreme Court, with major disputes that became conservative rallying cries largely vanishing from the court's docket.

After four years in which Trump placed immigration at the center of his domestic agenda, prompting dozens of legal battles, the cases now pending at the nation's highest court are more likely to have started under former President Barack Obama and to involve technical matters rather than big picture policy questions.

But immigration experts predict the lull won't last as President Joe Biden comes under immense pressure from the left to quickly unwind many of Trump's policies and Republicans line up to try to block the administration's earliest orders. Two such cases are already moving through lower federal courts in Florida and Texas.
