WHAT IS THE REMAIN IN MEXICO POLICY?
On January 24th, 2019 the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced it would begin forcing some asylum seekers arriving at our southern border to remain in Mexico while they apply for asylum, a policy known as the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) or “Remain in Mexico”.
The Hope Border Institute denounces the Remain in Mexico program. This practice violates human rights, presents obstacles to due process and threatens the lives and well-being of families and individuals.
