Letter to the Biden Administration on MPP

We, the undersigned 108 organizations, are profoundly disappointed by the Supreme Court’s decision on August 24 to refrain from blocking a U.S. District Court decision on the misnamed Migrant Protection Protocols (“MPP”). Although we disagree with these rulings, we urge the Department of Homeland Security (“DHS”) to take all necessary legal steps to immediately issue a new policy memo that provides a fuller explanation for the decision to terminate MPP and that resolves any Administrative Procedures Act (“APA”) issues identified by the U.S. District Court. Taking this step is the quickest and most secure way to bring an end to MPP consistent with the court’s order.
