Asylum seekers wait uneasily in Nogales to make their claim
By Curt Pendergast

About 56,000 asylum seekers entered the Migrant Protection Protocols from January to November, mostly in Texas and California, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, which tracks federal data. The vast majority of asylum seekers do not have lawyers. About 120 cases have ended with some sort of relief for asylum seekers. Fewer families are asking for asylum in Texas than last summer, but Arizona has seen an uptick in recent months. In November, CBP started sending asylum seekers from Arizona to El Paso and then to Ciudad Juárez, where they wait for hearings in El Paso.
