Michael Tan Warns against Reconsidering Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” Policy

Michael Tan (’10), Deputy Director of the ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project, was quoted in Politico discussing the Biden administration’s “troubling” consideration of restarting Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy (“Biden Mulls ‘Lite’ Version of Trump’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ Policy,” Sep. 6). “In our view, that’s completely unacceptable. It’s illegal. What the administration should be doing — and hopefully is already doing — is working on a new memorandum that responds to the concerns of the district judge in Texas, and terminates the program again.”
