Judge Orders Biden to Put Back Trump Border Policy amid Disastrous Border Crisis
Trump proved right again
Democrat Joe Biden's border disaster is now so bad a federal judge has ordered him to reimplement a key Trump policy that actually worked.
Trump's policy forced foreign nationals entering the United States illegally via the southern border to be returned to Mexico and wait for their legal cases to be adjudicated.
Judge Matthew J. Kacsmaryk ordered Biden to “enforce and implement [Migrant Protection Protocols, commonly referred to as ‘Remain in Mexico’] in good faith until such a time as it has been lawfully rescinded in compliance with the [Administrative Procedure Act] and until such a time as the federal government has sufficient detention capacity to detain all aliens subject to mandatory detention under Section 1255 without releasing any aliens because of a lack of detention resources.”
Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt praised the move on Twitter, writing:
“Big win for border security!”
“We just won our second immigration lawsuit against the Biden Admin!"
"They unlawfully tried to shut down the legal and effective Remain-in-Mexico program, but Texas and Missouri wouldn’t have it,” Texas AG Ken Paxton’s office wrote in a tweet.
“Together we sued, and just handed Biden yet another major loss!”
Neon Nettle reported that Biden's DHS Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas admitted the border crisis is "unsustainable" and "we're going to lose" in leaked audio.
Mayorkas also admitted the infrastructure but in place by Biden is almost "breaking."
"If our borders are the first line of defense, we're going to lose, and this is unsustainable," Mayorkas confesses in an audio file obtained by Fox News.
Biden's border crisis has reached a breaking point as it arrives at the sixth consecutive month as U.S. Customs and Border Protection apprehended 212,672 illegal aliens, the worst ever month recorded by the DHS.
Schmitt highlighted the importance of Trump's Remain in Mexico policy:
Aimed at reducing a key incentive to illegal immigration – the ability to stay in the United States during immigration proceedings, even without valid claims to asylum – the Migrant Protection Protocols were implemented by President Trump in 2018 and related to migrants who have no legal entitlement to enter the United States but who depart from a third country and transit through Mexico to reach the United States land border.
Before the Migrant Protection Protocols were enacted by the Trump Administration, illegal aliens hoping to gain entry into the United States would attempt to “game” the immigration system by traveling from a third country like Guatemala or Nicaragua through Mexico and claiming asylum in the United States. More often than not, those who made unmeritorious or unsubstantiated claims for asylum were arrested at the border, given a notice to appear, and admitted into the United States. Those who were released into the interior often never showed up to their court dates and disappeared.
Through the Migrant Protection Protocols, migrants who were eligible for the MPP, which was determined by an immigration official at the border, were given a Notice to Appear and were returned to Mexico to await those proceedings. These protocols significantly reduced detention and enforcement burdens on the Department of Homeland Security and others. On January 20, 2021, President Biden suspended the Migrant Protection Protocols in a two-sentence memo. Today’s order completely vacated that memo.
As a personal aside, it was one of my greatest professional honors to be able to work on both MPP & the now-cancelled Safe 3rd agreements for President Trump.— Stephen Miller (@StephenM) August 14, 2021
We must use every legal tool in our arsenal to stop Biden’s erasure of our territorial sovereignty. AFL won’t back down.
Trump, during his presidency, managed to fix the border crisis and kept numbers low throughout Fiscal Year 2020.
Trump said in June the current border crisis had been caused by “gross incompetence” from the Democrats.
“These are great people that work so hard for our country, and I’ve been asked to go, so I’m seriously considering it, it could happen, relatively soon, just to support these incredible men and women who have done such a good job and you know they just are left out to dry,” Trump said.
