Grenspatrollie-bronne het aan Fox News gesê dat soveel as 60,000 migrante versamel aan die Mexikaanse kant en beoog om die VSA binne te gaan. in die komende dae, knowing that the Biden administrasie intends to re-implement the Trump-era policy next month in response to a court order from a federal judge that was upheld by the Supreme Court.
Migrants already coming across in La Joya, Texas were predominantly from Honduras, Nicaragua, El Salvador and Guatemala and included many unaccompanied minors and single mothers. One woman told Fox that the economy in her country was terrible and as a single mother she cannot afford to send her child to school.
“Bly in Mexiko,” formally called the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), was established and expanded in 2019 deur die Trump -administrasie en behels die stuur van migrante na Mexiko, eerder as om in die VSA vrygelaat te word, as their immigration proceedings were heard. The Biden administration began unraveling it earlier this year, even amid soaring migrant numbers, and formally ended it in June before the court ruling ordered a reversal.
Proponents described the policy as incredibly effective and one that helped end the process of “catch and release.”
“That program alone resulted in a 75-80% reduction in families illegally entering the country. It closed that loophole down,” former acting Customs and Border Protection (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan said at a roundtable this week.
Egter, critics called the process inhumane and one that left migrants open to violence and exploitation on the Mexican side of the border by cartels and other criminals. Immigration activists have fumed at the Biden administration’s panned restart of the policy.
In a filing verlede week, the Biden administration said it had made “substantial progress” in re-implementing MPP, even as it says it is seeking alternative ways to end the program.
The filing said it had engaged in talks with Mexico, finalized operational plans and has also issued a task order to rebuild the soft-sided facilities (which were commonly referred to as “court tents”) in Laredo and Brownsville, Texas to the tune of $ 14.1 miljoen — with a predicted $ 10.5 million a month in operational costs.
“As a result of this progress, DHS anticipates being in a position to re-implement MPP by mid-November dependent on decisions made by Mexico,” the filing said, even as a separate statement said that DHS is finalizing a memo that would end the policy in accordance with the order.
The battle over MPP comes as leaks from government sources say that Fiscal Year 2021 set a record for apprehensions at the border, met 1.7 million encountered — 132,000 of those were unaccompanied children.
The final border numbers have not been released, but are expected any day.
