‘Remain in Mexico’ policy is now a year old
By Angela Kocherga

Of the 17,517 cases assigned to the MPP court near the border in El Paso, about 8,000 were still waiting in Juárez for their first hearing, according to data through December 2019 from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University. Less than 3% of the applicants had access to legal representation. Critics calling for the end of MPP argue it “outsources” U.S. immigration policy by sending asylum seekers to Mexico.
