Supreme Court gave the Biden administration a victory, ruling that the Trump-era program “Remain in Mexico”
Can come to an end. In a 5-4 ruling, the court said that the administration properly ended the policy and the lower court overreached when it decided the policy had to remain in place.
“Remain in Mexico,” formally known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, required asylum seekers at the southern border to wait in Mexico until their U.S. immigration court hearings.
