The Supreme Court rules against the Biden administration in its attempt to end the “Remain in Mexico” program, which was negotiated and approved by former President Trump administration. SCOTUS refuses to block a lower-court ruling that requires the gov’t to reinstate the policy.
Joe Biden administration had requested to continue the suspension of a federal judge’s order that requires U.S. border officials to reinstate the so-called “Remain-in-Mexico” program.
Former President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy required that asylum seekers arriving at the United States’ southern border should stay in Mexico while they awaited a hearing on their asylum claim.
Supreme Court decision suggests that the Department of Homeland Security committed some legal violation when it rescinded a Trump-era immigration policy, but it does not identify what that violation is.
