In Light of Supreme Court Ruling, Congressman Castro Urges Biden Administration to Move Swiftly to Terminate ‘Remain in Mexico’

Today, after the Supreme Court issued a ruling allowing the Biden administration to terminate the Trump-era ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy, Congressman Joaquin Castro (TX-20) released the following statement:

“This week, 53 people died horrible deaths in San Antonio in a case that demonstrates the cruelty of Trump-era immigration policies. I’m glad that the Supreme Court has now opened the door for the Biden administration to rescind ‘Remain in Mexico’ and allow vulnerable people to seek asylum from the safety of the United States,” said Congressman Castro. “The Biden administration must now move swiftly to terminate ‘Remain in Mexico’ and establish the legal framework to unwind Title 42. The United States has a legal and moral obligation to protect asylum-seekers, and I will continue fighting for a humane immigration system that prioritizes fairness and safety for all people.”
