Refugees Who Remain in Mexico Can Not Find Lawyers
By Andrea Ano

The absence of lawyers makes it easier to understand how only 4% of Mexico's decisions proceeded in asylum, whereas the national grant average for 2019 was 29%. According to the Syracuse University's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, only 5.3% of asylum seekers who were legally considered to be subjected to the Migrant Protection Protocols have been provided legal practitioners by the end of January, compared with 85% for asylum seekers across the state. The San Diego proceedings were cancelled on Friday without reason, hours after Governor Gavin Newsom had advised 40 million people to stay home until further notice, however the courtroom stayed open.
