Biden Admin To Finally Reinstate Trump’s ‘Remain In Mexico’ Policy

As a result of a court order, the Biden Administration is forced to reinstate the Trump era “remain in Mexico” policy. 

Fox News reported, The Biden administration is planning to promptly reinstate the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy that requires asylum seekers at the U.S. southern border to wait in Mexico until their cases are heard.

The policy requires that asylum seekers remain in Mexico, or outside of the United States while their case is heard. It was first established by President Trump in 2019.

A DHS spokesperson said, “As we have previously stated, we are required by court order to reimplement MPP.”

The administration has done their best to resist the reimplementation of the policy that works to reduce illegals using asylum as a false pretence to enter the country. 

“In compliance with the court order, we are working to reimplement MPP as promptly as possible. We cannot do so until we have the independent agreement from the government of Mexico to accept those we seek to enroll in MPP. We will communicate to the court and to the public the timing of reimplementation when we are prepared to do so,” the DHS spokesperson told Fox. 

In June, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas put the “remain in Mexico” policy on hold. Mayorkas claimed that the policy failed to “adequately or sustainably enhance border management in such a way as to justify the program’s extensive operational burdens and other shortfalls.”

In reality the action was a small link in the chain of undoing and undermining the previous 4 years of Trump era policy making. 

As a result, Texas and Missouri sued the Biden Administration, a federal judge ordered that the president re-institute the policy and enforce it. 

Texas and Missouri claimed  in their lawsuit that that attempting to do away with the policy was not only harmful, but illegal.
