2020 Situation Report: Remain In Mexico

Remain in Mexico represents a new level of assault on migrants, our binational communities and our country’s commitment to asylum. But it is also a piece with the long legacy of racism at the border and a national history of immigrant scapegoating. Both of these require a deep reckoning. 

This situation report documents the real impacts of Remain in Mexico on migrants in Ciudad Juárez, just across the border from El Paso, TX. 


This crisis will exact a toll on the poor, the undocumented, asylum seekers and those living in the shadows of our society. While these legislative packages contain critical aid, they don’t go far enough. With these packages, the government has left undocumented persons and tax-paying families with mixed status behind by denying them access to critical relief.
