An appeals court has rejected another attempt by the Biden administration to toss out a Trump-era immigration policy. It’s the “Remain in Mexico” program which requires asylum-seekers to wait south of the border for their court date.
Texas and Missouri filed suit when the policy was stopped. A federal judge later ruled the policy had to be reinstated.
In Monday’s ruling, the 5th US Circuit Court of Appeals court wrote that the Department of Homeland Security “claims the power to implement a massive policy reversal – affecting billions of dollars and countless people – simply by typing out a new Word document and posting it on the internet.”
