NPR: Avidan Cover, professor of law and the associate dean for academic affairs at the School of Law, discussed the Supreme Court ruling that the Biden administration could reverse a Trump-era initiative, the Migrant Protection Protocols, requiring asylum-seekers to remain in Mexico while their cases are reviewed in U.S. courts. “Whatever the mandate is to detain individuals, if there isn’t sufficient funding to ensure that there’s both sufficient capacity and of course, humane capacity, then the executive branch needs to look for other options,” he said.
