SC weighs policy for migrants
SC weighs policy for migrants. The Associated Press reports that the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy, or Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP). The Supreme Court is giving the Biden administration a quick hearing on its effort to scrap a Trump-era border policy that makes asylum-seekers wait in Mexico for hearings in U.S. immigration court. President Joe Biden suspended the program on his first day in office. Lower courts had gone too far in requiring President Biden to keep in place policies that intruded on his ability to carry out the nation’s immigration procedures and foreign policy, wrote Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr. It was a rare win for the administration at the Supreme Court this term, and for the court’s liberal members who found themselves in the majority.
