The Homeland Security Department announced late Monday that it will end the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” policy and welcome ousted illegal immigrants back into the U.S. after a federal court dissolved the last remaining hurdle.

Judge Matthew J. Kacsmaryk lifted his permanent injunction after the Supreme Court ruled in late June that Homeland Security Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas did have power under the law to end the border security program, officially known as the Migrant Protection Protocols.

Under MPP, some illegal immigrants caught jumping the southern border were pushed back into Mexico to wait for their immigration court hearings.

The policy’s goal was to deny them the foothold that has served as an enticement for an unprecedented flow of illegal immigrants, and it proved strikingly successful for the Trump team.

But the Biden administration called the policy cruel, and has pushed from its early days to end the program, along with most of the rest of the Trump administration’s get-tough immigration policies.

The department said Monday it will immediately stop ousting people under MPP, and said the several thousands who’d been ousted under MPP in recent months will be and welcomed back when they show up for their next appointments — though they remain under threat of deportation.

“As Secretary Mayorkas has said, MPP has endemic flaws, imposes unjustifiable human costs, and pulls resources and personnel away from other priority efforts to secure our border,” the department said in a statement announcing the move.

Judge Kacsmaryk had ruled that Congress laid out a framework that calls for illegal immigrants to be detained or released under rare circumstances. In cases where neither of those was possible, he said the law required they be returned to Mexico.

An appeals court backed Judge Kacsmaryk, but the Supreme Court disagreed in a 5-4 ruling led by Chief Justice John G. Roberts Jr.

He said Congress made return of the illegal immigrants to Mexico optional, and the Biden administration has more leeway to decide how to treat those jumping the border.

Since Judge Kacsmaryk’s original ruling last year, the Biden administration has put about 5,000 illegal immigrants into MPP, according to the latest numbers through June 30.

More on the burn pit issue/bill.

 

The Colorado Springs Gazette newspaper (8/12/2022 edition).

Michael Bennet, Colorado Springs veterans discuss 'burn pit' bill and how to improve health care

U.S. Sen. Michael Bennet visited Colorado Springs on Thursday, in part to tout the

PACT Act, which President Joe Biden signed into law Wednesday, expands health

care benefits for veterans who developed illnesses from exposure to toxic

substances from burn pits on military bases.

Burn pits are used to dispose of waste collected on overseas military bases.

Because forward-deployed units cannot get rid of their tras

h and waste in conventional ways,

they have to dispose of it by the most expedient means possible,

which often means digging a massive trench, dumping the waste products into it,

and setting it ablaze.

Plastics, rubber, discarded food, chemicals, batteries — as well as medical and human waste

 — produce toxic fumes when burned, and millions of exposed service members

have developed a vast array of medical symptoms from the smoke, including long-term effects

on skin, eyes, lungs, and the reproductive and central nervous systems.

Several forms of cancer also have been connected to burn-pit poisoning.

The PACT Act was enacted to expand health care and remove the burden on certain

veterans to prove that their conditions are connected to their military service.

But when the Colorado Democrat stopped by VFW Post 101 to speak with a

group of combat veterans about the legislation, the conversation evolved

into an intense, emotional discussion about deficiencies in the way the

U.S. health care systems treat former service members.

The senator did far more listening than speaking as a contingent of former

and current service members delivered a clear consensus:

The PACT Act is a crucial and beneficial step toward caring for veterans,

but much more help is needed.

One of the most pressing needs, veterans said, is a more

efficient way for veterans to get in to see a physician.

“As part of my cancer treatment, they had to pull seven teeth from the left side

of my face,” said Aaron Himes, a retired soldier who has throat cancer.

“Last December, I started the process to get those teeth replaced.

My second appointment isn’t until this December. So it’s going to take a year to get evaluated,

and another year to 18 months to get those teeth replaced.”

“For me to go see a dermatologist for my service-connected illness, it’s a 9½-month wait,”

said Elba Barr, a former military intelligence analyst who’s also battling

cancer after prolonged burn-pit exposure. “There shouldn’t be a roadblock to our care.

We’ve earned the right to this care, we deserve it, and we need it.”

The wait to see a doctor can be so daunting that some veterans just don’t bother, Barr said.

“The red tape is what’s stopping a lot of veterans, especially younger ones, from coming in,”

she said. “They’d rather just not deal with it than wait 18 months just to get

their teeth cleaned at the dentist.”

Other needs the vets listed: mental health care with a focus on suicide prevention,

treatment for military-related sexual trauma, counseling and treatment for addiction issues, and more efficient claim-processing.

Bennet acknowledged that the delay issues are “unacceptable,” and

said lawmakers need to find a way to help the Defense Department and the

VA better coordinate.

“You see these units have had an outsized number of suicides after

they’ve come back (from overseas),” Bennet said. “DoD isn’t tracking this

in a way that informs the

VA, and the VA can’t seem to communicate to the DoD what they’re seeing.

If we had a better system, we might be able to intervene before it’s too late for some of these people.”

“Maybe there’s a way for us to do a better job coordinating with the congressional offices, as well,

so that we all have a conviction together,” Bennet said. “If we can figure out

how to better integrate care among the different VA institutions and with the

nonprofits and private sector — not just on health care, but on behavioral health

and substance abuse — that would be enormously helpful.”

The senator said he was moved by the veterans’ stories, and that he plans to raise their issues in Washington.

When asked what the veterans can do to help, Bennet said, “You’ve already done it.

The whole reason I’m here is to thank you, because we could not have gotten the

PACT Act across the finish line without you, and without the families and loved

ones who’ve been fighting for this.”
