Supreme Court considers Biden effort to end Trump ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy
(Worthy News) – The Supreme Court heard arguments on Tuesday over President Joe Biden’s bid to end former President Donald Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, which makes asylum-seekers coming from the southern border reside in Mexico while awaiting immigration hearings.
Biden’s Department of Homeland Security has disputed the Trump-era policy and is appealing lower court rulings that required the 2019 immigration program, previously known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, to remain in place. The president initially paused the program after taking office in January 2021, and the DHS ended the program in June 2021.
“All the court needs to say in this case is that the contiguous territory return provision does not carry the meaning that justified the district court’s injunction in this case,” Justice Department Solicitor General Elizabeth Prelogar said Tuesday, arguing against the Trump-era policy.
