Biden administration reaches deal with Mexico to re-implement Trump-era 'Remain-in-Mexico' policy
The Biden administration announced Thursday that it is ready to re-implement the Trump-era "Remain-in-Mexico" policy in response to a court order to do so, after making changes to secure the agreement of the Mexican government – while still seeking to abolish the program entirely.
"As required by a federal court order, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has been working in good faith to re-implement the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) program," the Department of Homeland Security said in a statement. "Today, in coordination with the Departments of State and Justice, DHS announced key changes to MPP to address humanitarian concerns raised by the Government of Mexico and shared by the U.S. Government."
