Texas AG Moves to Force Implementation of 'remain in Mexico' Policy; Files Lawsuit Against Biden Admin to Reinstate 'Remain in Mexico' Policy: The Lawsuit Accuses the Biden Admin of Ignoring the Supreme Court and Lower Court Rulings, and related stories

Texas AG moves to force implementation of 'remain in Mexico' policy:
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton's office has told a federal judge that the Biden administration is failing to make efforts to comply with a ruling that revived a Trump-era policy requiring individuals who entered the U.S. illegally to be sent back to Mexico to await legal proceedings.
The AG in a filing in Amarillo, Texas, federal court on Thursday said the U.S. Department of Homeland Security should follow the Trump administration's playbook and reimplement the so-called "remain in Mexico" policy in phases instead of waiting to overcome various procedural hurdles.
U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk last month in a lawsuit by Texas and Missouri said the Biden administration had unlawfully eliminated the program, known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, without fully considering its benefits. The administration has appealed the decision to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals.
DHS in subsequent court filings said it cannot revive the MPP until it reaches agreements with Mexico and Central American countries and enters into contracts to build infrastructure for immigration hearings at the border. --->READ MORE HERE
Texas AG Paxton files lawsuit against Biden admin to reinstate 'Remain in Mexico' policy
The lawsuit accuses the Biden administration of ignoring the Supreme Court and lower court rulings
Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton has filed a lawsuit in an effort to force the Biden administration to reinstate former President Trump's "Remain in Mexico" policy after the Supreme Court refused to block a lower court ruling that the policy must be reinstated.
"It looks like to us they're just stalling," Paxton told Fox News when asked about what the Biden administration has done to reinstate the policy. "We don't know for sure all of the facts, that's why we want discovery. But it seems like they're using the excuse that they haven't worked out their arrangement with Mexico."
The lawsuit, which is being supported by the State of Missouri and was filed Thursday, accuses the Biden administration of ignoring the court's order to reinstate Migrant Protection Protocols, which forces migrants to remain in Mexico while they await immigration proceedings in the United States.
"I think they're just trying to keep ignoring federal law, keep ignoring the Supreme Court ruling," Paxton said. "The government doesn't care about federal law clearly, we've already established that. Now they don't care about all the orders from the courts, including the Supreme Court." --->READ MORE HERE
