"Remain in Mexico" policy is being challenged.
The Department of Homeland Security began implementing a dramatic new policy last month requiring asylum seekers to return to Mexico to await immigration court hearings. Many denounced the so-called “Migrant Protection Protocols,” (MPP) highlighting the extreme dangers that migrants in Mexico face when forced to remain on the southern side of the border. Last week, the ACLU filed a lawsuit challenging the policy on behalf of eleven asylum seekers affected by the policy and five organizations that seek to assist them. http://immigrationimpact.com/2019/02/21/remain-in-mexico-policy-legal-challenges/
