The Facts Inside Our Reporter’s Notebook
The Biden administration has told the federal courts that it intends in mid-November to reimplement President Trump's "Remain in Mexico" immigration policy – if it can get support from stakeholder government.
The move comes after an initial victory by Texas and Missouri in a suit that argued the administration too hastily withdrew the policy, under which the U.S. transported 70,000 asylum-seekers to Mexico to await a determination in their case, according to The Hill newspaper.
The Department of Homeland Security has appealed the case and is working on a memo to try again to rescind, but it is still required to reimplement what was formally termed the Migrant Protection Protocols "in good faith," the Hill also reports.
