Taxpayers to Fund Immigration Tent Courts in Texas

'Discussions with the Government of Mexico concerning when and how MPP will be reimplemented are ongoing...'

The Biden administration said last week that it will comply with the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico Policy.”

But now that the rule has been reinstated on liberal terms, American taxpayers will fund the project, Just the News reported.

According to the policy—also known as the Migrant Protection Protocols—potential immigrants must remain in Mexico while they await their immigration hearings.

Biden, in a furious attempt to return to Obama-era open borders, suspended MPP, along with many other Trump-era immigration orders, resulting in the ensuing border crisis.

Soon after his inauguration, Biden said, “Rolling back the policies of Remain in Mexico—I make no apologies for that … I make no apologies for ending programs that did not exist before Trump became president, that have an incredibly negative impact on the law, international law, as well as on human dignity.”

Yet, the Justice Department has been forced to comply with the order and plans to resume the policy in November.

In order to “speed up” the immigration hearing process, the DOJ has hired contractors to begin constructing large-scale “court tents” in the Texas cities of Laredo and Brownsville.

A similar system was in place prior to former President Donald Trump’s brokering of the “Remain in Mexico” policy, when thousands of immigrants arrived via caravan in a brazen effort to overwhelm the system.

Constructing tents and arranging courts will cost taxpayers $14 million, according to the Washington Post. Maintaining them will cost taxpayers another $24.6 million per month.

Asylum-seekers who have allegedly returned to Mexico would have their immigration status hearings in the tents. Currently 1.4 million illegal immigrants await hearings.

Yet for the MPP to actually work, Mexico must work in partnership with U.S. officials.

Whereas Trump maintained a friendly relationship with the Mexican president, immigration czar Kamala Harris claims to have spent her time addressing the “root causes” of immigration.

“Mexico is a sovereign nation that must make an independent decision to accept the return of individuals without status in Mexico as part of any reimplementation of MPP,” the Department of Homeland Security wrote. “Discussions with the Government of Mexico concerning when and how MPP will be reimplemented are ongoing.”
