(John Moore/Getty Images) The states of Texas and Missouri filed a motion on Thursday seeking a court order to force the Biden administration to reinstate the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) program, accusing the administration of having ignored the Supreme Court’s order last month to do so.
The motion ( pdf ) filed late Thursday accuses the administration of having stalled in its efforts to enforce the MPP program.
“The Biden Administration’s refusal to follow the law has created chaos at our border. Our officers are working endlessly to try to manage the crisis that is overwhelming our state,” Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton said in a statement .
The policy, also commonly known as “Remain in Mexico,” requires some people seeking asylum to stay in Mexico while they await immigration proceedings in the United States.
The program was launched in January 2019 under the Trump administration. Mark Morgan, who was acting commissioner of Customs and Border Protection at the time, told The Epoch Times that the MPP was “the most significant game-changer” and largely responsible for a 75 percent drop in illegal crossings.
President Joe Biden had ordered the MPP program to be suspended in January, on his first day in office.
Texas and Missouri subsequently sued the administration, culminating in a Supreme Court order in August that declined to intervene in stopping an injunction ordering the Biden administration to reinstate the MPP program.
“I have already sued this administration and won—yet they still think they are above the law and can continue shirking their responsibilities,” Paxton said in his statement. “It’s time to stop the Biden Administration from acting outside of federal law.

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt said in a statement : “If the Biden Admin won’t act to secure the border, we will.”The Biden administration earlier this week asked a federal appeals court to lift the injunction, ordered by U.S. District Judge Matthew Kacsmaryk, a Trump […]
PLEASE Help Us Fight the Good Fight
Today’s Goliath is the Mainstream Media Industrial Complex that brainwashes the masses.
Our mission is very straightforward: To counter the false narratives and nefarious agendas destroying America today. It isn’t easy for obvious reasons; despite incredible growth over the last year we are still a very tiny fish in a huge media pond. But we’re fighting and we will continue to do so, Lord willing, for as long as we possibly can. The battle for America’s present and future is too important for us to back down to the giants that stand in our way.
We need help. I don’t want to say “desperately,” but the need is definitely great. You will notice we do not bow to Big Tech by running Google or Facebook ads. So many in conservative media do because it’s lucrative, but I just can’t imagine taking a paycheck from the minions of evil. That’s why we’re so dependent on our readers to pay the bills and expand our reach.
If you have the means, please donate through our GivingFuel page or via PayPal. Your generosity is what keeps these sites running and allows us to get the truth to the masses. We’ve had great success in growing but we know we can do more with your assistance.
Thank you, and God Bless!
