The Supreme Court in August upheld a lower court ruling that required the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to reinstate the so-called Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP).
DHS on Wednesday announced it would support the bill “in good faith,” but the agency plans to reinstate MPP once the bill is lifted.
“The new MPP ban will not take effect until the step is lifted by a court order,” the DHS statement said. “In issuing the new manifesto concluding the MPP, the Department hopes to address the grievances raised by the courts relating to the previous memorandum.”
The DHS said it was still in the process of negotiating a major partnership with Mexico and the restructuring team to implement the MPP at this time.
But the announcement of the MPP’s reinstatement will be foolish for a while and hope from the Biden leadership that it will eventually win the case in court.
The MPP was one of the most troubling Trump-era travel plans, as it often led to migrants setting up camp in dangerous and unhygienic areas in Mexico’s border cities.
Although Mexico has been reluctant to accept the agreement, former President Trump has threatened to tighten immigration and trade law, citing the possibility of a ban on Mexico if it does not accept deportees deported from the United States.
It is unknown at this time what he will do after leaving the post. are taking to the Mexicans to approve the development of the program.
Under the Trump administration, DHS deported as many as 70,000 migrants to Mexico, setting up refugee camps in the Mexican border cities.
At home, the MPP was contested by immigration officials, who said it was a direct violation of US and refugee laws, which gives players the right to apply for asylum once in the country.
Under the MPP, the US authorities would launch an asylum system, but then deport them to Mexico, forcing them to wait for their court action in that country.
Biden’s decision to suspend the MPP angered some MPs, who argued that earlier this month he should have just released a new memo.
“If the administration really wants the outcome of the law, it can re-write the memo,” Ahilan Arulanantham, co-director of the Center for Immigration Law & Policy at the University of California, Los Angeles School of Law, once told Hill.
He said Biden’s management should take a page from Trump’s administration letter, if it continues to rewrite the Muslim ban.
“They wrote in a different way, it hit the ground running. They write again, it goes to the Supreme Court. They write again, always treating any court errors to make it harder to fight. And of course you can do it here, and the court ruling gives you a way to do it. It’s not rocket science,” Arulanantham said.
This may include creating a long memo explaining the reason for controlling the MPP, which is being conducted by Biden management.
“In fact, they should consider issuing a 100-page, multi-page memo listing all they can about the program, the reasons for the suspension, and the problems they face in order to call Judge Kacsmaryk,” Jorge Loweree, director of the American Immigration Council, once told The Hill. a lawyer who first led Biden to reconsider MPP.
