(Jacob Bruns, Headline USA) Despite various court orders to enforce border laws, the Biden administration has ignored the problem, instead waiting until the Supreme Court announces a ruling on the Trump-era Remain in Mexico policy this June, Just the News reported.
The policy requires that all illegal aliens be entered into the Migrant Protection Protocol. Yet according to data released by the United State Customs and Border Patrol Agency, a mere 199 of the 221,303 illegal aliens stopped by federal agents in March were entered into the MPP program.
The Biden administration, therefore, is following the court orders in less than 1% of required cases.
Former CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan remarked on the dismal numbers: “They only enrolled a couple hundred in the Remain in Mexico while they apprehended 221,000.”
According to Morgan, the Biden administration’s actions have made a joke out of the court orders.
And even in the few instances of genuine enforcement, Morgan noted that the Biden administration is ignoring the loophole that the rule was meant to close. In other words, it is permitting illegals to pose as fake families in order to secure entry into the country.
“They’re not even applying the Remain in Mexico program to the demographics it was designed to address,” he said. “It’s all a joke.”
It appears that, instead of following the law, the Biden administration plans to ignore the law until the Supreme Court rules on the case in late June.
Though the Biden administration tried to appeal to the Court to set aside prior rulings, the high court rejected the appeal, citing precedent.
Specifically, they noted the Trump administration’s appeal in its attempt to strike down the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, which the Court rejected in 2020.
