More immigration judges to be assigned to cases at tent facilities
By Priscilla Alvarez

Around 60,000 migrants have been subject to the administration's policy that requires some migrants to wait in Mexico for the duration of their immigration proceedings. Given that they're residing in Mexico, immigration lawyers based in the US have limited access to them, particularly in dangerous regions. Only a small share of migrants in the program have secured representation, according to Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, which tracks court data and released a report on access to attorneys this summer.
