A few months back I wrote a letter to VDARE.com (above) explaining that the Texas v. Biden decision was not as bad as it seemed, and that the lower courts could still rule against Biden and force him to re-implement ”Remain-In-Mexico.”
Well, it appears that has now happened.
Federal Judge Stops Joe Biden from Ending Trump-Era ‘Remain in Mexico’ Policy, by Jordan Dixon-Hamilton, Breitbart.com, December 16, 2022
Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk of the Northern District of Texas stopped President Joe Biden’s administration from ending the Trump-era Remain in Mexico policy, setting up another court battle over the immigration policy.
Remain in Mexico, formally known as the Migrant Protection Protocol, “allows the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to quickly return border crossers to Mexico while they await their asylum and immigration hearings in the United States — effectively eliminating the practice commonly known as ‘Catch and Release,’” as Breitbart News explained.
Kacsmaryk’s decision on Thursday came several months after the U.S. Supreme Court ruled the Biden administration did not violate the Immigration and Nationality Act when it sought to end the Remain in Mexico policy.
However, the Supreme Court left open the possibility that the district court had the power to vacate the administration’s ending of the program.[More]
There is still a long way to go in the courts, but this is a positive development.
