Judge orders Trump's 'Remain in Mexico' policy to be reinstated

A federal judge has ordered the Biden administration to reinstate the "Remain in Mexico" policy that had been put in place by the Trump administration, stating that President Biden's White House had acted "arbitrarily and capriciously" in ending the program.

As CBS News reported, U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk said in his ruling on Friday that the Biden administration had violated procedural laws and failed to see "several of the main benefits" of the Remain in Mexico policy, also known as the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP).

In June, the Biden administration formally ended Trump's immigration policy, which required asylum-seekers to remain in Mexico as their cases awaited trial in the U.S.

Biden suspended the program on his first day in office.

He was Deputy General Counsel to First Liberty Institute, a conservative religious freedom legal advocacy group. He has been a member of the Fort Worth chapter of the Federalist Society since 2012.

Having these judges everywhere with their crazy rulings is part of the downside of not voting for Clinton.

I got halfway through the headline and pulled a hammy jumping with joy. “Judge orders Trump’s remain in Mexico.” Wish it had ended saying, “and Mexico will pay for it”. Disappointment every day, no, every hour, for going on 6 years. How about some good news, maybe just a little justice for any Trump.

The law is the standard. And Biden, as President, has that authority.

Where the SCOTUS struck down Trumps rescission order on APA grounds?

Not saying the Texas Court order is correct. Just saying that the issues aren’t as cut and dry as your post suggests.

and is not based in law. The Biden Administration has the authority over immigration policy just as the Trump administration did. The change was done by a Trump order and the fact that the judge would have the audacity to admit his favor of the Trump policy in the ruling is bonkers.

As someone noted, I don't see how the ruling could be enforced. The government will do what it wants regarding migrants.

Should have been upheld by the SCOTUS on the grhe had authority over immigration policy?
