“Remain in Mexico”: A Massive Unchecked Violation of the Rights of Asylum-Seekers Under International Law


This article demonstrates the profound impacts of the United States’ Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) or “Remain in Mexico” policy on transitory migration flows through Mexico, on the human rights and lives of asylum-seekers subject to the policy, and on the border communities that receive them. Findings are drawn from reputable data and news sources, information from organizations working directly on the ground with MPP subjects on both sides of the border, and first-hand observations from the author’s experience as a human rights observer in MPP cases at the San Diego Immigration Court and working with asylum-seekers in Mexico.
