The Supreme Court of the United States overturned President Donald J. Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy for asylum seekers. Chief Justice John Roberts and Justice Brett Kavanaugh joined the three liberal judges in the majority in the court’s decision.
This represents a victory for the Biden Administration.
When the Trump administration attempted to shut down the so-called’remain in Mexico’ or migrant protection protocol program, the Supreme Court ruled, in a 5-4 split decision, that the administration did not breach the rules and followed the correct procedures.
But the concern was what to do with immigrants who cross the southern border into the United States. Seek Asylum. In a previous instance, a federal judge in Texas determined that you must return them to Mexico.
And over 70,000 people returned to Mexico as a result of the initiative.
Human rights organizations asserted that these individuals were subjected to a variety of crimes, kidnappings, rapes, and cruel treatment as they waited.
And the left viewed the Trump agenda as a catastrophe. Shortly after assuming office, the Biden administration attempted to shut it down in the White House.
Two states, Texas and Mississippi, filed a lawsuit stating, “No, you didn’t do it the correct way,” and today the Supreme Court ruled, “Yes, you did,” allowing the administration to continue with its plans to try to shut down the program.
According to the DHS, the following text was included in the program that Biden wishes to terminate.

The Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) are a U.S. Government action whereby certain foreign individuals entering or seeking admission to the U.S. from Mexico – illegally or without proper documentation – may be returned to Mexico and wait outside of the U.S. for the duration of their immigration proceedings, where Mexico will provide them with all appropriate humanitarian protections for the duration of their stay.
