The Supreme Court has reinstated Trump’s ‘Remain In Mexico’ policy after a 6-3 decision.
In 2019 the Trump administration placed a policy that required migrants to stay in Mexico while they await hearings to determine their eligibility into the US. Critics have said the Remain In Mexico policy was cruel, putting migrants in danger as they wait in camps across the southern border.
As part of his campaign promise, the Biden administration has been working to end the policy which formally ended in June.
Both Texas and Missouri general attorneys sued the administration claiming that ending the policy the way they did was illegal. The states also claimed that our country would be put in danger as some migrants released could commit crimes, lead to human trafficking, and fuel the crisis at the southern border.
SCOTUS voted Tuesday to reinstate Remain In Mexico due to the administration not being able to sufficiently argue their legality of ending the policy.
The Department of Homeland Security released a statement disagreeing with the ruling; however, they will in good faith honor it.
