Biden Isn’t Just Reinstating “Remain in Mexico,” He’s Expanding It
Last week, the Biden administration announced that it was formally reimplementing the program after a decision by the Supreme Court. The new policy, negotiated with the Mexican government, will include new sectors of migrants in the program and expand to new cities along the border, putting thousands of migrants’ lives at risk.
