The Supreme Court has sided with the Biden administration In a 5-4 decision in Biden v. Texas. The Court ruled Thursday that the Biden administration has the authority to reverse the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” policy. Under the Trump era policy, migrants seeking entry into the United States had to “remain in Mexico” as they waited for their hearings.
Fox News reports “The Trump administration put the policy in place so that migrants would not be released into the U.S. The Biden administration had tried to repeal the policy but was previously blocked by a lower court. At issue was whether the Department of Homeland Security’s suspension and subsequent termination of the policy violated a federal law that requires that migrants be detained or, if they arrived from a contiguous country, sent back.”
Chief Justice John Roberts wrote the majority opinion, joined by Justices Brett Kavanaugh, Sonia Sotomayor, Stephen Breyer, and Elena Kagan. The majority held that the Biden administration has not violated the Immigration and Nationality Act, and that memoranda issued by DHS in October repealing the policy represented “final agency action.”
“[T]he Government’s rescission of MPP did not violate section 1225 of the INA, and the October 29 Memoranda did constitute final agency action,” Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the Court’s opinion. The Court has sent the case back to district court, with instructions to “consider in the first instance whether the October 29 Memoranda comply with section 706 of the APA.”
Fox News writes:
The statute Roberts cited, 8 U.S.C. Section 1225, says that someone applying for admission “shall be detained for a proceeding” unless they are “clearly and beyond a doubt entitled to be admitted,” and also says if they are from a contiguous territory like Mexico, “the Attorney General may return the alien to that territory” as they await a hearing. Texas and Missouri had pointed to this language in arguing that the Remain in Mexico policy was necessary to adhere to this law. Without the ability to detain everyone, the states argued in their lawsuit, sending them back when possible is necessary.
National Review reports on the case:
Since coming into office, President Biden’s Department of Homeland Security has twice sought to rescind the Migrant Protection Protocols, which require certain non-citizens who arrive at the Southern border to stay in Mexico while their asylum cases are processed. Texas and Missouri both challenged that federal policy reversal, arguing that it was unlawful under both federal immigration law and the Administrative Procedure Act.

Over 600 ‘gotaway’ illegal immigrants disappeared into the U.S. in just one weekend
A video shows just one group of over 150 migrants crossing illegally into Eagle Pass, TX. FOX LA’s Bill Melugin reports the group is virtually all adults.
The group of adults crossing was merely one moment in time “as the sun came up” but that scenario occurs non-stop. The Border Patrol in the Del Rio sector explains that an unbelievably high amount of over 600 individuals simply are described as “gotaways.”
That means not only are their whereabouts within the United States completely unknown, but so are their identities. They could be human traffickers, drug smugglers, victims, terrorists, kidnapped children, etc.
Not only did the 600 plus people disappear into the country, but the high number was in just one weekend. News also broke of the arrest of a rapist with a forcible sodomy conviction of a migrant who illegally crossed the border in Virginia.
Another huge single group of 150+ migrants crossed illegally into Eagle Pass, TX as the sun came up this morning. Almost all single adults.
