U.S. President Joe Biden has overturned many of former President Trump’s policies since taking office, especially on immigration measures. The Biden administration has now decided to overturn Trump’s “stay in Mexico” policy, which no longer forces asylum-seeking immigrants to wait for their release in Mexico.
Reuters reported that the U.S. Department of Homeland Security local time on Tuesday sent a memo to senior management wrote that the government has formally terminated the former dynasty commonly known as “stay in Mexico” policy of the “Migrant Protection Protocols” (Migrant Protection Protocols). The Department of Homeland Security noted that Biden took office on Jan. 20 and immediately called a halt to the policy, which allowed more than 11,000 registered immigrants to enter the United States to apply for asylum.
The Biden administration’s friendly policy attracted a large number of immigrants, which in turn caused a tightening of the U.S. border enforcement energy. Border Protection Agency in March and April of this year in the south of the monthly arrests is the highest number in 20 years, May’s figures are not far behind. For Biden’s series of reversal decisions, the Republican Party criticized this undoubtedly encouraged the influx of immigrants to the U.S.-Mexico border in recent months.
