Washington, DC – Today, the Biden administration reached an agreement with Mexico to reinstate President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy on the southern border. President Biden, on his first day in office, rescinded the Trump order but several states, including Texas, sued. A judge in the Northern District in Texas recently sided with the states, ordering the administration to reverse the decision. The Biden administration then appealed to the Supreme Court, which blocked its action to end the Trump era policy. Now the administration has agreed with Mexico on terms to reinstate the policy, starting with one location and eventually moving to seven on the US-Mexico border.
AMAC Action President Bob Carlstrom said: “The Biden administration frankly is lucky that the courts have blocked their open-border efforts. Their immigration policies have failed on all fronts, and the American people are noticing, even if the media is no longer interested in the border now that President Trump is not in the White House. AMAC Action credits Texas and Missouri for asserting their states’ rights and suing to keep their borders secure. They remain in Mexico policy under President Trump helped curb illegal immigration, and Biden’s rejection of it for political reasons has been a disaster. It has led to the highest number of migrant encounters in nearly two decades on the border. It is fortunate for the country that the courts are forcing this administration’s hand on the issue.”
The Trump administration first implemented the policy in 2019 amidst a surge of migrants from Mexico and Central America. Though President Trump’s policies were needed to help combat illegal immigration, the media instead focused mostly on children being held to be processed. This year, border patrol agents have encountered a record 145,000 unaccompanied migrant children. Needless to say, the media has not dedicated the resources or air time to covering these record-setting numbers under the Biden administration. AMAC Action is dedicated to restoring humane conditions at the US border and keeping the country safe.
