The Biden admin has an ace up its sleeve after they stopped the policy and the conservative US District Court in Texas ordered Homeland to restore the policy….
(The Biden admin has modified the policy with increased processing capacity …Homeland still expels tens of thousands illegal border crosser’s)
Mexico has to agree to the policy coming back…
An American court cannot order another nation’s actions…
Mexico has not indicated what it will do leaving the Biden admin free to ignore the Trump admin policy….
The Department of Homeland Security said in a statement late Thursday it is “taking necessary steps to comply with the court order, which requires us to reimplement MPP in good faith.”
MPP cannot resume without Mexico’s consent, as the court acknowledged in its ruling, and administration officials said they are taking steps to address the concerns of the government of President Andrés Manuel López Obrador by setting up better access to legal counsel for asylum seekers and exemptions for vulnerable migrants.
Biden’s version of MPP would seek to complete asylum case processing within six months, the officials said, using temporary courts in tent facilities set up at the same border crossings in Brownsville and Laredo, Tex., used by the Trump administration. Their planned restart of the program will prioritize “making sure individuals are treated humanely,” one official said.
The officials said the administration is preparing a new memo to formally end MPP but would not be able to move forward until the court injunction is lifted.
