Biden v. Texas

The Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) also known as the “Remain in Mexico” policy has been a humanitarian catastrophe: asylum seekers have been murdered, raped, kidnapped, extorted, and compelled to live in squalid conditions where they face significant procedural barriers to meaningfully presenting their protection claims.

As Texas and Missouri’s challenge to the Biden administration’s attempts to terminate MPP are pending expedited merits review before the Supreme Court, this amicus brief cites to multiple Human Rights First reports, research, and client stories, to show the human cost of the Fifth Circuit’s refusal to consider the Administration’s fuller analysis of its reasons for terminating MPP, issued in response to an earlier decision from the district court in this case.

Human Rights First joined with 61 advocacy and legal services organizations in submitting this amicus brief to the Supreme Court.
