President Joe Biden’s administration got rid of a Trump-era policy that will only exacerbate and prolong the ongoing crisis at America’s southern border.

Department of Homeland Security (DHS) Secretary Alejandro Mayorkas announced the formal repeal of the “Remain in Mexico” policy, part of the Migrant Protection Protocols. The repeal came Tuesday in a memo. The announcement comes despite the fact that the border crisis continues apace, as both March and April set highs for incidents involving contact between migrants and immigration enforcement officers in recent years, Customs and Border Protection (CBP) data shows.
