Supreme Court to Hear Biden Appeal on ‘Remain in Mexico’ Border Policy; SCOTUS to Review Push to End 'remain in Mexico' Policy, and related stories

Supreme Court to hear Biden appeal on ‘Remain in Mexico’ border policy:
The Biden administration will get to argue its case before the US Supreme Court as it tries to end the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy for asylum-seeking migrants at the southern border.
The court agreed Friday to hear the White House’s appeal after several defeats in lower court rulings as the administration looked to shelf the 2019 policy, which requires migrants seeking asylum in the US to wait in Mexico while their cases are pending.
President Biden had railed against the policy as a candidate and put it on pause just hours after taking office in January 2021, with the Department of Homeland Security officially ending it in June of that year.
A massive surge of migrants to the southern border soon followed and Missouri and Texas sued to reinstate the policy. A federal judge ordered the administration to put it back in place — leaving the Biden administration scrambling to relaunch the program and send asylum seekers back across the border. The Biden administration implemented changes to the policy, including ending the separation of families at the border. --->READ MORE HERE
Supreme Court to review push to end 'remain in Mexico' policy:
The Supreme Court on Friday agreed to review a dispute over the Biden administration’s effort to end a controversial Trump-era immigration measure that requires asylum-seekers at the U.S. southern border to stay in Mexico while their applications are processed.
In a brief order, the justices announced they would hear arguments in April over whether the Biden administration must continue the policy despite a determination by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that the measure is not in the United States' national interest.
Former President Trump’s “remain in Mexico” policy, implemented in 2019, blocked migrants at the Mexican border from entering the U.S. to apply for asylum, leaving tens of thousands of people awaiting their fates in Mexico, according to previous Biden administration estimates.
More than 60,000 asylum-seekers were returned to Mexico under the policy, formally called the Migrant Protection Protocols. That was a departure from previous practice of allowing those fleeing violence to cross the border and apply for asylum within the U.S. --->READ MORE HERE
