End Title 42
On June 30, the Supreme Court ruled that the Biden Administration has the authority to terminate the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), also known as Remain in Mexico. JRS/USA welcomed this news as thousands of stranded asylum seekers will now be able to safely proceed with their asylum claims while waiting in the U.S.
The Biden Administration must take steps to end MPP quickly and ensure that asylum seekers impacted by this policy are admitted to the U.S. to have their cases processed. At the same time, thousands of migrants and asylum seekers continue to be turned away at the U.S. border due to Title 42. Although the Administration has tried to end this public health authority, Federal courts and Congressional efforts continue to stand in the way.
Please join us in calling on members of Congress and all decision makers across the U.S. to come together to acknowledge the humanity of those who have been forcibly displaced, recognize the dignity that each person possesses, and restore access to asylum for all.
