AILA Joins the American Immigration Council in Calling on the Biden Administration to Block the Return of MPP

For two years, the Trump administration’s Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), also known as Remain in Mexico, inflicted harm on vulnerable people seeking asylum at the border and created obstacles to due process. The Biden administration rightly ended the program. On Friday, August 13, a federal judge in Texas, in a case brought by the States of Texas and Missouri, issued a permanent injunction ordering the Department of Homeland Security to “enforce and implement MPP in good faith” for an indefinite period of time. AILA joins the American Immigration Council and other organizations in calling on the Biden Administration to appeal this erroneous and factually incorrect decision.
