USCRI Snapshot: Migrant Protection Protocols

By USCRI October 18, 2021

The Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) policy, also referred to as Remain in Mexico, is a program that was implemented by the Trump administration in response to an increase in asylum seekers at the southern border. The program requires asylum seekers, both from Mexico and from other countries, to stay in Mexico while their asylum cases are pending in U.S. immigration courts. The policy has had grave effects on the safety of migrants, who are forced to stay in Mexico in dangerous and inadequately resourced camps. Reports of attacks and human rights abuses against the migrants are rampant, and basic necessities such as shelter and medical care are lacking. This snapshot details the effects of MPP on asylum seekers, the court case over the policy, and steps the Biden administration can take to end the policy for good.
