After a long-awaited decision over two years, the U.S. The Supreme Court will allow President Joe Biden to terminate the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” order.
The decision came three days after a 5-4 vote after Texas faced the deadliest smuggling attempt in U.S history after 53 migrant individuals were left trapped in a sweltering truck in the backroads of San Antonio, Texas.
So what does this mean now? This means a victory to the Biden Administration due to President Biden being closer to his fulfilled promise of terminating the Trump-era executive order and preventing asylum seekers from getting sent back to Mexico while their cases are processed on U.S soil.
President Biden attempted to terminate the Trump-era order last year but was sued by Missouri and Texas which forced him to continue the “Remain in Mexico” across the southern U.S-Mexico border.
Even though President Biden has the authorized power to terminate the “Remain in Mexico” order, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) public health order, “Title 42”, will remain in effect due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic.
