Trump Administration: Border Apprehensions Drop As Immigration Crackdowns Continue

Trump Administration: Border Apprehensions Drop As Immigration Crackdowns Continue”

Under the policy, migrants have to wait in Mexico before their asylum claims are considered.

Castro walked with the group and their lawyers across the worldwide bridge and asked Customs and Border Patrol to allow them in, claiming an exemption to the MPP because of their status.

Like thousands, the asylum seekers Castro attempted to help remain in Mexico under the Trump administration's Remain in Mexico policy.

He pointed directly to the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), which he said has now required more than 51,000 asylum seekers to wait in unsafe Mexican border cities for the duration of their court proceedings.

Detention under the custody of the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency, the asylum seekers said, would be better than being forced to wait another day in Mexico.

"Their claims to exemptions to the "Remain in Mexico" policy have been rejected by Brownsville CBP, who have broad discretion over the matter". Castro went to Mexico and met with migrants seeking asylum at a refugee encampment in Matamoros, Mexico in a move of solidarity and in hopes to put pressure on immigration officials as well.

"Hours after we were told LGBT and disabled asylum seekers would have their cases heard, they have been returned to Mexico", Castro said in a tweet.

Non-refoulement, the group explained, "is when an asylum seeker or refugee can not be sent back to the last country they were in because they are subject to persecution there".

U.S. border agents arrested or stopped almost one million undocumented migrants at the southern border with Mexico in the last 12 months, the most in more than a decade, a top official said Tuesday. When asked about whether Mexico would pay for the expanded border wall as President Donald Trump had said earlier during his administration, Morgan said, "That's a political thing to me". "This is, of course, a mockery of due process".

The border security also cited the "asylum cooperation agreements" the USA has reached with all three countries in Central America's Northern Triangle: El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.
