  • 'We refuse to be complicit': Advocates leave Biden admin meeting in protest of Remain in Mexico plan

    MATAMOROS, MEXICO - FEBRUARY 07: Laundered shoes hang to dry inside a camp for asylum seekers on February 07, 2021 in Matamoros, Mexico. Many of the some 600 people in the camp, most from Central America, have been living there for up to a year, waiting for an immigration court hearing across the bridge in Brownsville, Texas. The camp originally sprang up due to former President Trump's "Remain in Mexico" policy, where asylum seekers had to wait in Mexico during the legal process. The courts were then suspended due to the pandemic. Since the inauguration of President Joe Biden, other asylum seekers have begun crossing the Rio Grande into Texas, and immigration authorities have been releasing them pending court hearings. The camp dwellers, however, say they have yet to receive such due process. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)

    Border-based asylum organizations and advocates left a virtual meeting with the Biden administration on Saturday to protest plans to restart the previous administration’s cruel and unlawful Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) policy, also known as Remain in Mexico. Should the U.S. receive Mexico’s cooperation, the Biden administration said it would restart the policy by next month, pursuant to a court […] More
