Trump’s Remain-in-Mexico Asylum Policy Revived by Judge; Judge Orders DHS to Restart Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ Policy; Pro-Migration Activists on Texas Court Defeat Have Meltdowns, and related stories

Trump’s Remain-in-Mexico Asylum Policy Revived by Judge:
A federal judge ordered the Biden administration to revive a controversial policy begun under former President Donald Trump that forces immigrants seeking U.S. asylum at the southern border to wait in Mexico while their applications are pending.
U.S. District Judge Matthew J. Kacsmaryk in Amarillo, Texas, ruled late Friday that the Biden administration “failed to consider several critical factors,” including the benefits of the Remain in Mexico policy, before ending the program.
It’s another setback for President Joe Biden following a January ruling by a different judge in Texas that temporarily blocked the new administration’s plan to pause deportations of undocumented immigrants for 100 days.
Friday’s decision came in a lawsuit filed by the Republican-led states of Texas and Missouri, which claimed the suspension of the program was worsening conditions at the border and allowing criminals to slip into the country.
Biden suspended the Remain in Mexico program the day after he office on Jan. 20., amid criticism that it pushed migrants into squalid and dangerous housing south of the border. --->READ MORE HERE

Judge orders DHS to restart Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy:
A federal judge ordered Homeland Security to restart President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, ruling Friday that the Biden administration cut too many corners when it scrapped the get-tough approach to illegal border crossers.
Judge Matthew J. Kacsmaryk said Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas rushed to scrap the policy, officially known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, without considering the benefits of pushing border jumpers back across the boundary to Mexico to await their immigration court dates.
Particularly at a time when the government is defying U.S. law by catching and releasing illegal immigrants that are supposed to be detained, the judge said the MPP was a viable alternative, and the Biden team needed to give more than a cursory explanation for ending it.
“Defendants are ordered to enforce and implement MPP in good faith until such time as it has been lawfully rescinded in compliance with the [Administrative Procedures Act] and until such a time as the federal government has sufficient detention capacity to detain all aliens subject to mandatory detention,” the judge wrote.
The decision is a severe blow to the Biden team’s efforts to roll back Mr. Trump’s immigration policies and a victory for Texas Attorney General Kan Paxton and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt, who brought the lawsuit. --->READ MORE HERE
