Trump-Era “Remain In Mexico” Program Is Back, But With Loopholes

In what was one of the most effective parts of the Trump border policy and deterrents in fighting the invasion on the U.S. Southern border, the “Remain In Mexico” Program, is back but with a few significant changes. The Trump administration used the MPP program to return more than 60,000 asylum seekers across the border to Mexico.

In what is good news for the majority of Americans who believe in border security, the reality is the Biden administration, especially  DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas, are rabid globalists who have inserted some loopholes as they still fight this policy in the courts.

The White House is enacting new policies in the program such as:

  1. Expanding who can be eligible to be sent back across the southern border to include anyone from the Western Hemisphere other than Mexico. Under Trump, only people from Spanish-speaking countries and Brazilians were allowed to be returned to Mexico. The expansion included in the reintroduced policy makes it possible for US border officials to send Haitians to Mexico, which generally did not happen in years prior.
  2. Under the new agency guidance, vulnerable immigrants, such as those with known physical or mental issues or of advanced age, will be exempted from Remain in Mexico. An internal government report obtained by BuzzFeed News found that while those with “known physical/mental health issues” were also prohibited under the Trump version from being turned around, border officials placed them in the program anyway.

President Biden had previously denounced the program as inhumane and quickly ended it after taking office, but Republican officials in Texas and Missouri sued the administration in Texas federal court and won an injunction in August forcing the government to restart the program.

US District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk ordered the Biden administration to restart the program until it could rescind the policy in compliance with the Administrative Procedure Act. His order went into effect shortly afterward, and since then, Biden has been developing plans to restart Remain in Mexico. In the meantime, DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas has written a memo once again rescinding the policy in hopes the courts will do so.

“This Administration, however, remains under a court order requiring it to reimplement MPP in good faith, which it will abide by even as it continues to vigorously contest the ruling,” the DHS said in a statement on Thursday.

So there you have it America. When someone doesn’t want to do something but is forced to, you end up with a shabby attempt, and for those who are bent on getting their way, they add subjective loopholes, as the 2 mentioned.

Immigration and education are quickly killing America, the next 2 elections will decide if the globalists won the coup d’etat, this time against an entire nation.
