An Asylum-Seeker Who Was Raped By A Group Of Men In Mexico Has Been Sent Back There Under A Trump Policy
By Adolfo Flores

Friday was the two-year anniversary of the Trump administration's Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), informally known as the Remain in Mexico policy. The policy has forced more than 70,000 immigrants and asylum-seekers to wait in Mexico for months and even years while their cases are adjudicated by a US immigration judge, according to an analysis from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC) at Syracuse University. Despite the word "protection" in its name and a promise from the Mexican government to protect those sent back to Mexico, hundreds of immigrants have been easy targets for cartels and corrupt law enforcement who kidnap and torture them for ransom.
