Immigration: US Supreme Court agrees to review controversial Trump-era asylum policy

The U.S. Supreme Court announced Friday that it will hear an oral argument in April over whether the administration of President Joe’s Biden can relax its controversial “stay in Mexico” asylum policy. Trump started under the former president’s administration or not.

Under this policy, individuals seeking asylum at the southern border are required to remain in Mexico pending trial in US immigration court.

In August 2021, SCOTUS rejected Biden’s initial attempt to end policy in a shaded order. Then, in late December 2021, the Biden administration asked the Supreme Court to review the decision upholding the program. Specifically, the administration has asked for a review of the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals decision, which on December 13 denied the executive’s request to block an order from a federal judge.

That judge agreed with the Texas and Missouri lawsuits to end the protocol.

In addition, the government “respectfully” asked the Supreme Court to hear the arguments of this case for the current period, warning that delaying the review until the next term would delay the settlement. until about 2023.

The petition also argues that Migrant Protection Protocols are “not the best tool” to prevent illegal migration, which puts migrants at “unacceptable risk”. ” and undermines government efforts to manage immigration. The Biden administration also complains that the court order interferes with law enforcement’s work on immigration and foreign policy.
