Federal judge orders Biden administration to reinstate Remain-in-Mexico policy

KAREN TOWNSEND Aug 14, 2021 11:31 AM ET

A federal District Court Judge ruled that the Biden administration must reinstate the Trump-era Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) program Friday. This is seen as a huge win for border security if the decision stands. The order does not go into effect for seven days so that the federal government has time to file an emergency appeal.

Rest assured, the judge’s order will be appealed. Matthew Kacsmaryk, a judge on the United States District Court for the Northern District of Texas, was nominated by Trump, for those keeping score at home. When Joe Biden came into office he scrapped the successful policies of the Trump administration on the southern border, including the MPP program, also known as the Remain-In-Mexico program. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton filed a lawsuit against the Biden administration in April to get the MPP program reinstated. The Biden administration officially ended the program in June. By the end of June, DHS announced that those seeking asylum with closed cases would be allowed a second chance to cross the border and enter the U.S. anyway.    :snip:
