June 1

The DHS officially terminated the Migrant Protection Protocols. Under the MPP, individuals who arrive at the southern border requesting asylum are given a specific date or time to appear in immigration court and are required to remain in Mexico until that time. The U.S. District Court for the Northern district of Texas determined on August 13, 2021 that the June 1 memo was issued in violation of the Administrative procedure Act and INA. The DHS was ordered to “enforce and implement MPP in good faith.”
