Migrants returned to Mexico under Trump will get another chance to have asylum cases heard
By Anna Giaritelli, Homeland Security Reporter & Katherine Doyle, White House Correspondent

Eighty-six percent of asylum-seekers had their cases closed as a result of not showing up on their day in court, according to data from the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University in New York. The extortion and kidnapping of migrants living in the tent cities were well documented and affected people's ability to make it to court. In addition, migrants struggled to fill out legal paperwork, which was required to be in English. Just 1.6% of asylum-seekers enrolled in the "Remain in Mexico" program were granted asylum.
