Asylum seekers at US-Mexico border see hope in Biden administration immigration changes
By Lauren Villagran, El Paso Times

Arriving in large part from Cuba, Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador, migrants were made to wait in Mexican border cities such as Tijuana, Mexicali, Nogales, Juárez and Matamoros for a chance to plead their cases before a U.S. immigration judge. Thousands enrolled in the program have been hunkered down in shelters for months, even years. More than 27,000 people were attending their MPP hearings regularly before U.S. immigration courts closed last year due to the pandemic, according to an analysis of government data by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University.
