Biden looking to reboot Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy: report
Some White House officials reportedly viewed the Supreme Court ruling last week upholding the Trump-era Remain in Mexico policy as a chance to slow the pace of President Biden’s immigration changes that they feared were sparking the crisis at the border.
Many of them, according to the New York Times, had already been thinking about rebooting former President Donald Trump’s policy in a narrow way to stem the tide of migrants.
The officials saw the justices’ decision as a way to give Biden political cover to alter his predecessor’s immigration policy without angering Democrats who railed against those programs during the past four years.
Ditching the Remain in Mexico program was one of several Trump’s immigration programs that Biden reversed or rolled back in the early days of his administration — and that critics contend acted as a welcome invitation to migrants from Mexico and Central American countries.

Biden mulls ‘lite’ version of Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy:
The Biden administration is debating restarting what it describes as a more humane version of a controversial Trump-era program for asylum seekers.
The new proposal — what some have dubbed “Remain in Mexico lite” — would require a small number of asylum seekers to wait in Mexico for their cases to be processed but give them better living conditions and access to attorneys, according to three people familiar with the discussions.
The administration is starting talks with Mexico in a bid to strike a balance between abiding by a federal court order and making good on the president’s campaign promises. A federal judge ruled last month that President Joe Biden’s attempt to end the program — a pledge he made on the campaign trail — violated the law.
The possibility of resuming Migrant Protection Protocols or MPP — one of former President Donald Trump’s most contentious immigration policies — even while trying to soften it, has angered advocates who expected Biden to offer a more welcoming system for migrants. --->READ MORE HERE
