WASHINGTON—The Supreme Court ruled the Biden administration could cancel the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” program, which required authorities either to jail asylum applicants from Central America or deny them U.S. entry until their cases are resolved.

The policy, formally known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, drew immediate controversy when announced, but was largely sidelined during the coronavirus pandemic. The Trump administration relied on other authority to deny admission to migrants, particularly public-health orders under a provision known as Title 42. The Biden administration continued that practice, but has encountered opposition, including from some Democrats, over plans to end Title 42 exclusions while waves of Central Americans seek to cross the border.

The article goes on to state the following:

The Biden administration contends the Remain in Mexico program exposes asylum applicants, including mothers with children, to unsafe conditions. The administration said it can ease the burden on the immigration system through other means, such as hiring more hearing officers who could cut processing time to six months from current waits that can last years.


Even with the Remain in Mexico policy in effect, immigration officers have only sent about 6.5% of Central Americans seeking asylum to wait in Mexico for processing, the report explains.

SCOTUSblog tweeted: “The Supreme Court ALLOWS the Biden administration to terminate the controversial Trump-era asylum policy known as “remain in Mexico.” Red states argued that Biden was obliged to keep the policy, but SCOTUS says in a 5-4 ruling that the administration can end it.”

“Here is the opinion from John Roberts in Biden v. Texas: https://t.co/zuSZpiDQP0. Roberts is joined by the three liberals + Kavanaugh. Thomas, Alito, Gorsuch, and Barrett dissent.”

Fox News reporter Bill Melugin, who frequently reports from the border, tweeted: [emphasis added]

BREAKING: The Biden admin gets a win on “Remain in Mexico”. Supreme Court rules in a 5-4 decision that the Biden admin CAN terminate the controversial Trump era policy that forced some asylum seekers to stay in Mexico while waiting for their asylum cases to be decided.

John Roberts and Brett Kavanaugh joined the three liberal justices in this decision. Here is the opinion from Roberts: supremecourt.gov/opinions/21pdf

Fox News host Shannon Bream provided additional clarification about the Supreme Court ruling, explaining that there is more litigation to come. In a series of Twitter posts, she wrote:

On “Remain in Mexico” policy, 5-4 Court says Biden admin can roll it back – but litigation not exactly over.

Writing for majority, Chief Justice: : … the Government’s rescission of MPP did not violate section 1225 of the INA, and the October 29 Memoranda did constitute final agency action. (cont)

(cont) … We therefore reverse the judgment of the Court of Appeals and remand the case for further proceedings consistent with this opinion. On remand, the District Court should consider in the first instance whether the October 29 Memoranda comply with section 706 of the APA.

Chief’s End of Term statement says nothing about leak investigation.

Rep. Andy Biggs (R-AZ) blasted the decision, tweeting, “Joe Biden has created the worst border crisis in our nation’s history. Terminating “Remain in Mexico” will only make the crisis worse. Just because the Court says you can doesn’t mean you should.”

The House Homeland GOP tweeted, “The US is facing the worst border crisis in the history of our nation at the southwest border. It’s clear that instead of securing the border, @POTUS would rather leave it wide open. Why would @POTUS want to end the ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy?”
