Texas and Missouri Sue Biden Administration for Revoking Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ Policy

Texas and Missouri sued President Joe Biden’s administration Tuesday for rescinding the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), saying the program which forced migrants to wait in Mexico while their hearings progressed needs to be reinstated.

The Trump administration created that policy – also called the “Remain in Mexico” policy – in 2019 to prevent unmanageable numbers of foreigners claiming asylum from crossing the U.S. border. Most asylum claims are denied, and many foreigners claim it to enter the country, then disappear into the general population while their asylum claims are still pending in court.

In a press release, Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said he and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt filed the lawsuit in an effort to reinstate the program and “curb the criminal and humanitarian crisis at the border.”
