Trumpís Remain in Mexico Policy Is Causing Asylum-Seekers to Miss Court Dates ó and Get Deported
By Gaby Del Valle


39% of migrants forced to stay in Mexico while they apply for asylum have missed a court date, according to immigration court data analyzed by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. Meanwhile, only 20% of newly arrived, non-detained asylum-seeking families allowed to pursue their claims in the U.S. missed a hearing between September 2018 and May 2019, according to an analysis by the same group. (Unlike the MPP data, this group of people includes asylum-seekers from countries outside Latin America, including a growing number of African and Caribbean migrants.)
