The U.S. and Mexico agreed Thursday to restart the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy as early as Monday. The Biden administration previously ended the policy, but a federal judge in Texas ordered the policy’s renewal, and the Supreme Court upheld the ruling. The Department of Homeland Security said it would end the program again if another appeal, filed in August, was successful. Under the policy, formally known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, migrants arriving at the U.S.-Mexico border were required to await their immigration hearings in Mexico.
Coverage was somewhat more common in left-rated outlets than right-rated outlets. Some coverage in right-rated outlets focused on criticism of the policy’s reinstatement from hosts of “The View,” particularly a quote saying President Joe Biden “did break all of his campaign promises.” Update 12/3/21 5:29 pm EST: Corrected the filing month for the Biden administration’s additional appeal.
