Supreme Court will hear challenges on Trump's border wall, 'Remain in Mexico' policy
By Paul Ingram

About 62,000 people were sent back to Mexico to wait for their asylum claims under MPP since it was implemented in February 2019, many of them from Honduras and Guatemala, though this also includes people from Cuba, El Salvador, and Venezuela, according to the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse, a non-partisan project based at Syracuse University. At its peak, around 12,500 people were sent back in August, and the program has continued to expand along the southwestern border. In filings, the government has repeatedly said that the program covers 25,000 people and it remains unclear why there's such a large difference between figures that the government has given to TRAC and figures given to the court.
