Feds appeal asylum decision for first ‘Remain in Mexico’ migrant to win his case
By Gustavo Solis

While in Mexico, asylum seekers have been robbed, assaulted and some have died trying to cross the border illegally. Additionally, asylum seekers in the Remain in Mexico program have reported difficulty finding stable housing in Mexico and securing lawyers to represent them in immigration court. The fact that Alec was able to find a lawyer willing to represent him, puts him in the roughly 1.5 percent of migrants enrolled in the program who have legal representation, according to a study from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.
