President Biden reversed the Trump-era policy on his first day in office
YUMA, Ariz. (KYMA, KECY) - The Biden Administration says it plans to reinstate a Trump-era border policy next month.
The so-called "Remain in Mexico" policy forces asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico until their U.S. immigration court date.
According to a court filing late Thursday, Mexico wants cases to generally conclude within six months and ensure that asylum-seekers have timely and accurate information about hearing dates and times.
Mexico also wants better access to legal counsel and coordination on when and where asylum-seekers are returned.
Former President Donald Trump introduced the policy back in 2019.
But President Biden Suspended it on his first day in office.
A federal judge later ordered the Biden Administration to reinstate the policy "in good faith."
The Justice Department says the policy should be in effect around mid-November.
