Winning! Biden Admin Ordered To Reinstate Trump-Era ‘Remain-in-Mexico’ Policy
A federal judge has ruled that the Biden administration must enforce the “Remain in Mexico” policy following a lawsuit by Texas and Missouri.
The two Republican-led states sought a preliminary injunction against Biden’s June memo terminating the Trump-era policy, calling it illegal and harmful to U.S. national security.
Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk ordered the Biden administration on Friday “to enforce and implement” the Remain in Mexico policy “in good faith” until it has been “lawfully rescinded” via the Congress.
The Texas and Missouri Attorneys General lauded the ruling on Saturday, calling it a “massive win” for America and a “major loss” for the radical left.
“My office has been leading the way nationally in fighting human trafficking, and the Biden Administration’s lax border policies increase the risk for human trafficking at the border and, in turn, in Missouri,” Missouri AG Eric Schmitt said in a statement.
“Today’s massive win was crucial – re-implementing the Migrant Protection Protocols will help secure the border and fight the scourge of human trafficking.”
