From the Document: "On June 30, 2022, the Supreme Court in a 5-4 decision held in 'Biden v. Texas' [hyperlink] that the Department of Homeland Security's (DHS's) rescission of the Migrant Protection Protocols [hyperlink] (MPP) did not violate federal immigration laws concerning the inspection and treatment of non-U.S. nationals ('aliens,' as the term is used in the Immigration and Nationality Act [hyperlink] [INA]) arriving in the United States. The MPP--also known as the 'Remain in Mexico' policy--began during the Trump Administration and authorized the return of some asylum seekers [hyperlink] arriving at the U.S. southern border to Mexico during the pendency of their formal removal proceedings."
