BROWNSVILLE, Texas (KVEO) — A federal court judge ordered the Biden administration to reinstate the Migrant Protection Protocol program, according to Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton.
The order came after Texas and Missouri attorneys general sued President Joe Biden on April 13 for temporarily suspending the MPP program, also known as the “Remain in Mexico” policy, which was later made a permanent suspension by the Department of Homeland Security.
On Friday the court ordered the Biden administration to “enforce and implement MPP in good faith until such a time as it has been lawfully rescinded in compliance with the APA and until such a time as the federal government has sufficient detention capacity.”
ANOTHER VICTORY!— Texas Attorney General (@TXAG) August 14, 2021
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.
Together we sued, and just handed Biden yet another major loss! pic.twitter.com/Tcxte8gF6H
