Supreme Court requires Biden to revive Trump’s ‘remain in Mexico’ immigration policy

WASHINGTON, Aug 24 (Reuters) – The U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday denied President Joe Biden’s bid to rescind an immigration policy implemented by his predecessor, Donald Trump, that forced thousands of asylum seekers to stay in Mexico awaiting U.S. hearings.

The Department of Homeland Security said in a statement it regretted the Supreme Court’s decision and would continue to “vigorously challenge” the district court ruling. As the appeals process continues, it said, the agency will comply with the order “in good faith” and has begun discussions with Mexico.

The court’s decision referenced its 2020 ruling that thwarted Trump’s bid to end a program introduced by Democratic former President Barack Obama that protects from deportation hundreds of thousands of immigrants – often called “Dreamers” – who entered the United States illegally as children.

Biden’s administration turned to the Supreme Court after Kacsmaryk ruled that the Trump policy would have to be reinstated and the New Orleans-based 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on Aug. 19 denied the government’s request for a delay.

The 5th Circuit’s decision said the Biden administration must implement the MPP program in “good faith,” which leaves the government some discretion in how to move forward.

Democrats and immigration advocates criticized MPP, saying the policy subjected migrants, primarily from Central America, to dangerous conditions in Mexican border cities.

Reacting to the Supreme Court’s order, Omar Jadwat, a lawyer at the American Civil Liberties Union, which challenged the Trump policy during the previous administration, said the Biden administration must “take all steps available to fully end this illegal program, including by re-terminating it with a fuller explanation.”

Arrests of migrants caught crossing the U.S. southern border have reached 20-year highs in recent months, a development that Republicans blame on Biden’s reversal of MPP and other Trump immigration policies.

Biden’s administration has left in place a separate Trump-era order that lets U.S. border authorities, because of the COVID-19 public health crisis, rapidly expel migrants caught at the border without giving them a chance to seek asylum in the United States.
