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.

Pastoral Letter to the People of God in El Paso: On August 3rd, 2019, El Paso was the scene of a massacre or matanza that left 22 dead, injured dozens and traumatized a binational community. Hate visited our community and Latino blood was spilled in sacrifice to the false god of white supremacy.

In the last year, we’ve witnessed a cruel strategy to break migrants and our border community - zero tolerance, family separation and now Remain Mexico. But we won't give in to the logic of hate. This is not a breaking point. This a moment for decision. It’s now up to us to define the next chapter for our Paso del Norte community and work together for justice at the US-Mexico border.
