The Homeland Security Department announced late Monday that it will end the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy and welcome ousted illegal immigrants back into the U.S. after a federal court dissolved the last remaining hurdle.
Judge Matthew J. Kacsmaryk lifted his permanent injunction after the Supreme Court ruled in late June that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas did have power under the law to end the border security program, officially known as the Migrant Protection Protocols.
Under MPP, some illegal immigrants caught jumping the southern border were pushed back into Mexico to wait for their immigration court hearings.
The policy’s goal was to deny them the foothold that has served as an enticement for an unprecedented flow of illegal immigrants, and it proved strikingly successful for the Trump team.
But the Biden administration called the policy cruel, and has pushed from its early days to end the program, along with most of the rest of the Trump administration’s get-tough immigration policies.
