The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) ended former President Donald Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy as everyone concentrated on the FBI’s raid on Mar-a-Lago.
Not suspicious timing at all, eh?
The Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), also known as Remain in Mexico, had those seeking asylum stay in Mexico as the feds processed their claims.
On June 30, the Supreme Court ruled that Biden’s administration could end MPP.
On Monday, U.S. Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk set aside his August 2021 ruling that forced the administration to reinstate MPP.
JUST IN — U.S. Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk has set aside his August 2021 ruling that forced the Biden administration to reinstate the Trump-era Remain-in-Mexico border policy.

DHS didn’t waste time taking advantage of Kacsmaryk’s move:
We welcome the U.S. District Court’s decision, which follows the U.S. Supreme Court’s June 30th decision, to lift the injunction that required DHS to reimplement the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) in good faith. DHS is committed to ending the court-ordered implementation of MPP in a quick, and orderly, manner. Individuals are no longer being newly enrolled into MPP, and individuals currently in MPP in Mexico will be disenrolled when they return for their next scheduled court date. Individuals disenrolled from MPP will continue their removal proceedings in the United States.
As Secretary Mayorkas has said, MPP has endemic flaws, imposes unjustifiable human costs, and pulls resources and personnel away from other priority efforts to secure our border.
The Department will provide additional information in the coming days. MPP enrollees should follow the directions on their court documents and tear sheets to appear for their scheduled court date as required.
The border crisis is about to get worse.
The border patrol has stopped 3.1 million people trying to illegally cross the border since Biden became president.
The border patrol has also witnessed over 500,000 “gotaways” this fiscal year, which began on October 1. Gotaways are people who officials see crossing the border illegally and they do not catch.
Officials saw 389,155 gotaways in FY2021. Combine that with FY2022 we’ve seen 900,000 since the beginning of FY2021.
The border averages 55,000 gotaways per month.DONATE
