[Ed. – With the border now wide open, and the MPP understanding with Mexico terminated, there is no pretense at all of border security at the federal level. Texas and Arizona have Guard deployed to the border, but there’s a limit to what they can do. May all the benefits of these policies be reaped by those who favor them, and none of those benefits be visited on the rest of the American people.]
The Biden administration on Tuesday formally nixed the “Remain in Mexico” program, the latest in a series of moves to dismantle the Trump administration’s restrictive immigration policies.
The program, known formally as the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), was a cornerstone of Trump’s border management policy; it forced potential asylum seekers to stay in Mexico to wait out the result of their case in U.S. immigration court.
In a memo ending the program Tuesday, Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas said the MPP did not help with enhancing the border management. …
President Biden paused MPP shortly after taking office on Jan. 20, and has allowed into the country around 11,000 people who were in the program according to Reuters.
