The U.S. Supreme Court ruled against President Biden in his attempt to undo former President Trump’s “remain in Mexico” policy. Under Trump, the policy kept migrants awaiting asylum in Mexico rather than releasing them into the states. It was also known as the Migrant Protection Protocols.

At the time of the policy, Trump lauded the end of catch and release. “Catch and Release is an obsolete term,” Trump tweeted then. “It is now Catch and Detain. Illegal Immigrants trying to come into the U.S.A., often proudly flying the flag of their nation as they ask for U.S. Asylum, will be detained or turned away.”

Six judges ruled to deny Biden’s stay on the MMP policy. Justices Stephen Breyer, Sonia Sotomayor, and Elena Kagan dissenting, saying they would have granted the president’s application. Yet the majority said that Biden’s reasoning was “arbitrary and capricious.”

Then, the Department of Homeland Security issued a statement expressing that they disagreed with the court’s decision. “DHS has appealed the district court’s order and will continue to vigorously challenge it,” the department wrote. “However, DHS will comply with the order in good faith. Alongside interagency partners, DHS has begun to engage with the Government of Mexico in diplomatic discussions surrounding the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP).”  

Meanwhile, report after report shows migrants are being allowed past the border and released into the country. Not only is immigration up, but COVID-19 cases among migrants and Border Patrol agents is also on the rise.

Yet according to DHS, they claim they’ve already turned migrants away at the border. “Pursuant to the CDC’s Title 42 public health order, DHS continues to expel single adults and families encountered at the Southwest Border,” their statement read.

Trump, Rep Biggs: invoking the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation will ‘be necessary’

At a recent rally in Iowa, former President Donald Trump promised that if elected again in 2024, he would invoke the Alien Enemies Act to enable widespread deportation of migrants who have illegally entered the United States. Since President Joe Biden took office in January of 2021, over 6 million people have illegally entered the country.

Republican Representative Andy Biggs from border state Arizona, which is among the states suffering the greatest consequences from the Biden administration policies, lamented that Trump’s suggestion will be “necessary.”

Speaking on the Just the News, No Noise” television show, Biggs stated “[I]t’s actually gonna have to be necessary.” Biggs then added his thoughts on how many more people will continue to cross the border under Biden: “Because by the time Trump gets back in office, you will have had over 10 million, in my opinion, over 10 million illegal aliens cross our border and come into the country, under the Biden regime.”

“And so when you start deporting people, and removing them from this country, what that does is that disincentivizes the tens of thousands of people who are coming,” Biggs went on. “And by the way, everyday down in Darién Gap, which is in Panama… over 5,000 people a day. [I] talk[ed] to one of my sources from the gap today. And I will just tell you, those people that you’ve seen come come in to Eagle Pass, over 7,000 in a three day period, most of those two weeks ago, were down crossing into the Darién Gap.”

“And those people… make their way up and they end up in the Eagle Pass [Texas], Del Rio area,” he continued. “So if you want to disincentivize them, you remove them from the country, which is why they remain in Mexico policy was so doggone effective at slowing down illegal border crossings.”
