President Biden is reverting back to some of the policies of former president Donald Trump used.
“Joe Biden’s administration reinstituted former President Donald Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ asylum policy Thursday, according to multiple reports. Biden once called the policy ‘dangerous and inhumane,'” Daily Caller reported.
“‘Remain in Mexico’ requires asylum seekers to remain in their countries of origin throughout the asylum application process until their U.S. court date. Trump first implemented the policy in 2019, and Biden vowed on the campaign trail to dismantle it once he was in office. Department of Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas terminated the policy in June, and Biden had already suspended it on his first day in office,” reports Daily Caller.
“Donald Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy is dangerous, inhumane, and goes against everything we stand for as a nation of immigrants,” Biden said. “My administration will end it.”

“A federal judge in Texas overruled Mayorkas’ termination of the policy over the summer, ordering the Biden administration to reinstate the policy. After doing so, the Biden administration then took another crack at ending it in late October, only to reimpose a version of it on Thursday,” reports Daily Caller.
