The Texas Public Policy Foundation’s Senior Director for Right on Immigration Ken Oliver released the following statement regarding the Supreme Court’s decision to allow the Biden Administration to end the Migrant Protection Protocols program:
“It is clear that the Biden administration is committed to tearing down every effective border security program in existence, and the U.S. Supreme Court’s decision unfortunately helps clear the way for their essentially open borders agenda. The fact is that the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) were the single most effective measure implemented to stem massive, unrelenting abuse of the U.S. asylum system.
“It is a shame that the current administration in Washington refused to use its leverage to make effective use of this tool. Though the result of the litigation over MPP did not achieve the desired outcome, like similar lawsuits against the Biden administration over the past 18 months it did at least serve to significantly slow down the breakdown in the rule of law at our border. Thankfully, the American people still retain the power to restore the Migrant Protection Protocols by electing leaders to office who will restore them.”
