Biden Administration Reverses Remain in Mexico Policy

25,000 people awaiting asylum hearings will safely reside in the U.S.

President Biden’s administration announced its plans on Friday to reverse the previous immigration policy of barring admission to the United States for individuals seeking asylum. The “Remain in Mexico” policy put in place under the leadership of President Trump had asylum seekers await their court hearings in Mexico. 

The first batch of people entering the United States will take place on February 19, with approximately 1,000 people being admitted daily. There are 25,000 people currently awaiting their asylum hearing. Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas supported the policy change, saying, “As President Biden has made clear, the U.S. government is committed to rebuilding a safe, orderly, and humane immigration system.”

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That God would help the immigration system process through people’s asylum claims quickly and effectively. 
  • For God to work His will through the president’s immigration policy.
  • That God would give the Department of Homeland Security guidance on the best way to secure the nation
