Advocates applaud official end to 'Remain in Mexico,' but say more reform still needed
By Alisa Reznick

A count by the advocacy group Human Rights First shows more than 1500 cases of murder, kidnappings and other violent assaults on migrants enrolled in MPP across the border over the last two years. Williams said those factors can make it impossible for asylum seekers to have their day in court and, after they fail to make the date, they are removed from the asylum process altogether. Austin Kocher, an assistant research professor at Syracuse University, has been compiling data on the MPP program as part of the university's Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse database. He said almost 42,000 people had their MPP cases closed since the program's inception in 2019.
