Trump Administration Expands Remain-in-Mexico Policy

 

The Trump administration on Thursday hardened its “Remain in Mexico” policy by releasing asylum seekers that arrive at the Arizona border into the town of Nogales, Mexico, some 350 miles from Juarez, where their asylum hearings will take place.

 

Previously, some migrants who entered the U.S. in Arizona were transported by the government to El Paso, Texas, and from there were sent to Juarez, Mexico. Now migrants who are released in Nogales will be required to make their own journey along the border roads to appear for their asylum hearings, the Associated Press reported Friday.

 

U.S. authorities say the Remain in Mexico program has been an effective deterrent against illegal immigration, and the Border Patrol has reported apprehending 33,000 migrants along the southern border in November 2019, down from 114,000 in May.

 

“I am confident in the program’s continued success in adjudicating meritorious cases quickly and preventing fraudulent claims,” said acting Department of Homeland Security Secretary Chad Wolf in a statement. Of 24,000 asylum applications that have been ruled on as part of the program, only 117 were granted.

^"We dropped poor people off 350 miles from where their asylum hearings will take place and who would have thought, they stopped coming" is not strong evidence that this program is preventing fraudulent claims.

The real story there is that only 117 of 24000 asylum claims were approved.   It’s nit just that they’re poor and too far away.  We’re just not approving anyone even if they make it.

"The program is effective" in that we've effectively stopped granting asylum to those pesky brown people.  And now we're treating them like ****, too!  WINNING!
