An Asylum-Seeker Scored a Rare Win Under ‘Remain in Mexico.’ So Why Wasn't She Released?
By Maya Srikrishnan

At least 141 migrants under the MPP program have publicly reported cases of rape, kidnapping, sexual exploitation and violent assault while in Mexico, according to Human Rights First, a nonpartisan advocacy group. Only a couple of cases are publicly known in which migrants actually won asylum under the policy. Data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a think tank at Syracuse University, showed that from January to June, only 14 people of the 1,155 MPP asylum cases decided in that window had legal representation.
