The Biden administration is set to revive the Trump-era “Remain in Mexico” immigration policy.

The administration is planning to restart the policy in November in order to comply with a federal court order issued earlier this year. Joe Biden had originally decided to end the policy because he said too many migrants were facing violence in Mexico while awaiting their court date.

According to officials, the administration is aiming to make several changes to the rule, which requires asylum seekers to wait in Mexico for court hearings. Officials have also been holding talks with the Mexican government in order to address concerns they have about the reinstatement.

A spokesperson for the Department of Homeland Security addressed the situation in a statement, saying “as noted in the declaration filed on Thursday, DHS is taking necessary steps to comply with the court order, which requires us to reimplement MPP [Migrant Protection Protocols] in good faith. We are working to do so, despite our appeal of the court’s order, including, for example, by issuing contracts to rebuild temporary immigration-hearing facilities near the southwest border.”

In the meantime, a court filing said the administration will be building tent courts for hearings in the border cities of Laredo and Brownsville, Texas.
