Federal Judge Blocks Biden’s Attempt To End ‘Remain in Mexico’

A district judge stopped the Biden administration from canceling the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy on Thursday that mandates thousands of so-called ‘asylum seekers’ to wait for their immigration hearings south of the U.S. border.

Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk argued in his 35-page ruling that the Biden administration neglected to “adequately consider costs to States and their reliance interests” and that there is a strong chance of “of irreparable harm in the absence of preliminary relief.”

Should Biden ultimately get his desired cancellation in policy, over 70,000 migrants previously sent to Mexico from the United States would be allowed to reenter the United States, according to a report by The Hill.

The lawsuit to block the cancellation came after the Biden administration was sued by Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton and Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt.

Paxton and Schmitt celebrated the ruling on social media Thursday.

“I sued Biden nearly 2 yrs. ago to keep Remain-in-Mexico. The Admin played games all the way to SCOTUS, but tonight Texas & USA WINS,” said Paxton.

“Biden’s open-border agenda won’t survive my legal attacks.”

“BREAKING: In our lawsuit against the Biden Administration over their cancellation of the ‘Remain in Mexico’ Policy, a federal court in Texas just stayed the Biden Administration’s latest memo canceling MPP, keeping the vital program in place,” posted Schmitt.

This Thursday decision delays a 5-4 Supreme Court ruling in June that said the Biden administration could terminate the program.

The crisis of illegal immigration has continued to put an increasing amount of strain on various jurisdictions located by the southern border.

CBS News put out a report highlighting the struggles at the border city of El Paso, Texas. Detention facilities in the city are reportedly filled beyond capacity, with 5,105 migrants recorded in temporary custody on Dec. 11 despite the center being designed to hold only 3,500 people.

Many other migrants are apparently out on the streets as well due to the lack of residential facilities.

The Biden regime has vowed to fight the ruling. An administration official stated that they “disagree with this decision” and are now “determining next steps,” per Reuters.
