Alejandro Mayorkas Vows End to Remain in Mexico Despite Its Success Eliminating Asylum Fraud

First implemented in 2019 by former President Trump, the Remain in Mexico program allows DHS to quickly return border crossers to Mexico while they await their asylum and immigration hearings in the United States — effectively eliminating the practice commonly known as “Catch and Release.”
On Thursday, the Supreme Court (SCOTUS) ruled that Biden’s DHS can end Remain in Mexico but kicked the case back to a lower court to decide whether the administration properly ended the program in accordance with the Administrative Procedure Act (APA).
Biden’s DHS released a statement following the ruling, vowing to continue their effort to end Remain in Mexico:
As Secretary Mayorkas concluded in October 2021 after a thorough review, the prior Administration’s Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) has endemic flaws, imposes unjustifiable human costs, and pulls resources and personnel away from other priority efforts to secure our border. We welcome the Supreme Court’s decision affirming that the Secretary has the discretionary authority to terminate the program, and we will continue our efforts to terminate the program as soon as legally permissible. [Emphasis added]
The Biden administration’s seeking to end Remain in Mexico comes even as the program has drastically helped eliminate asylum fraud where border crossers and illegal aliens, who knowingly did not qualify for asylum, were released into the U.S. interior regardless.
The latest federal data, as Breitbart News reported, reveals that of the more than 45,000 Remain in Mexico cases adjudicated, only 1.6 percent of migrants enrolled in the program have been found to have legitimate asylum claims.
Meanwhile, more than 70 percent of migrants enrolled in the program have been ordered deported after failing to prove that they have valid claims for asylum. More than 10,000 migrants terminated their asylum proceedings before making it to court, suggesting they too did not believe they would be found to have valid asylum claims.
Reformers said the SCOTUS ruling underscores why House and Senate Republicans must make codifying Remain in Mexico into federal statute a key part of their immigration agenda for this year’s midterm elections and in 2024.
“Courts cannot be relied on to reign in the Biden administration’s relentless flouting of immigration laws,” executives with the Federation for American Immigration Reform (FAIR) said in a statement. “Congress must step forward with needed reforms to stop this historic border crisis.”
Biden’s DHS has replaced Remain in Mexico with an expansive Catch and Release operation where more than a million border crossers and illegal aliens have been released into American communities since the president took office in late January 2021.

‘We’re at The Circus Now’: GOP Strategist Says Mar-a-Lago Raid Will End With Either a Trump Indictment or Merrick Garland Resignation
CNN commentator and Republican strategist Scott Jennings appeared on State of the Union Sunday, where he argued that the Mar-a-Lago raid on Monday will come to a conclusion with serious consequences one way or another.
Earlier this week, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced that he would seek the unsealing of the search warrant and inventory list from the search and seizure of former President Donald Trump’s Florida estate. Garland additionally noted that he “personally approved,” the search warrant for the raid, pitting himself directly against Trump.
Once the information from the FBI raid was obtained, it was discovered that documents labeled with extremely high classification were found at Mar-a-Lago. The content of the documents remains unknown at this point.
While sitting on a CNN panel, Jennings argued that “in the aftermath of the raid,” there is a “reflexiveness,” with Trump. The Republican strategist claimed that many Republicans are unsatisfied with this outcome because they “want to take him out,” and “don’t want to let them [Democrats] do it.”
Jennings continued that he thought the situation was helping Trump “at least temporarily.”
The CNN commentator then said this week has felt like “we’re at the circus now. We’re all under the big top.”
“This can only end one of two ways,” Jennings argued. “He has to be indicted or Merrick Garland has to resign.”
“You can’t raid the former president’s house” and then end up doing nothing, he explained.
The CNN commentator concluded his argument by asking a rhetorical question, “How could it possibly end with just, well, we got him back and it’s over now?”
“There’s no going back now.”
According to reporting from the New York Times on Saturday, Trump may not be the only individual facing criminal trouble as a result of this investigation. A Trump lawyer falsely assured the Justice Department that all classified information had been returned to the federal government, two months before sensitive materials were found at Mar-a-Lago.
