WASHINGTON, June 30 (KUNA) -- The US Supreme Court on Thursday overturned a former Trump administration era immigration policy that requires asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while their cases are being reviewed by US courts.
The justices, who voted 5 to 4, reached the ruling after they expedited review of the current Joe Biden administration's attempt to put a stop to the protocols, dubbed the "Remain in Mexico" policy.
The former policy required some asylum seekers who enter the country illegally, mainly from Central and South America, to return to Mexico while they await a hearing. (end) asj.sd
