CBS News reports that the Biden administration will reinstate a Trump-era border policy in November that forces asylum seekers to stay in Mexico while the U.S. immigration courts decide their claims.
The decision comes after the Supreme Court declined the administration’s request to block an order by a federal judge to reinstate the policy, leaving the administration.
On his first day in office, President Joe Biden ended the policy, known as Migrant Protection Protocols, or MPP. He called it inhumane due to the violence migrants faced while waiting in Mexico, often in dangerous cities with few resources.
