The Supreme Court ruled 5 to 4 Thursday that the Biden administration may end the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” program, formally known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, or MPP. Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in the majority opinion that a lower court had overreached when it found the policy should remain in place after President Biden ordered it rescinded last year. Since the program’s implementation in 2019, some 70,000 asylum seekers were forced to wait in Mexico while their cases were resolved in U.S. courts. Thousands enrolled in MPP reported being kidnapped, raped, tortured and facing homelessness while they waited in Mexico.
