Judge Blocks Biden Admin’s Push To Scrap Trump-Era Border Policy

https://dailycaller.com/

A federal judge in Texas blocked the Biden administration from scrapping the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy Thursday.

U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk issued a pause on the Biden administration’s decision to end the program, according to the judge’s order. The policy forces certain illegal immigrants to return to Mexico as they await court proceedings.

The Supreme Court ruled  in June that the Biden administration can terminate the policy, which was formally lifted in August.

“As Secretary Mayorkas has said, MPP has endemic flaws, imposes unjustifiable human costs, and pulls resources and personnel away from other priority efforts to secure our border,” the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said at the time.

The Biden administration initially tried to end the policy on the president’s first day in office, but was quickly met lawsuits led by Republican states.

The decision comes as federal border authorities encounter overwhelming levels of illegal immigration, with a record more than 2.3 million migrants encountered in fiscal year 2022 and even more expected with the end of another Trump-era expulsion policy, Title 42, expected on Dec. 21.

  1. In order to receive ANY taxpayer assistance for ANY purpose, people should be required to show proof of actual US citizenship. Green cards, visas, etc … NONE of that counts. Also: private citizens of the United States should be allowed to protect their families and their own personal land and property from invasion BY WHATEVER MEANS THEY DEEM APPROPRIATE. I know how I’d take care of things… with assurances they’d never invade again. Illegal aliens are stealing our country… with the full support and assistance of the democrat party!
