Judge pauses Biden's plans to end "Remain in Mexico" policy
A federal judge in Texas on Thursday put the Biden administration's attempt to end the Trump-era "Remain in Mexico" program on hold.
- It forced tens of thousands of asylum-seekers to wait out lengthy U.S. immigration court processes in Mexico, Axios' Stef Kight and Oriana Gonzalez.
- Representatives for the Biden administration did not immediately respond to Axios' request for comment.
By the numbers: Roughly 70,000 migrants were impacted under the Trump administration.
Catch up quick: In June, the Supreme Court said the Biden administration had the authority to end the program despite objections from Republican-led states.
