This December, The Biden administration reached an agreement with the Mexican government to reinstate a Trump era program, known as “Remain in Mexico.” It requires migrants to wait in Mexico while U.S. officials consider their claims. The U.S. government has also kept Title 42 in place, a public health rule that allows border agents to immediately expel migrants because of the COVID-19 pandemic. To date, the only exception has been unaccompanied children and some families.
