Thousands of migrants returned to Mexico under the Trump administration “in Mexico,” policy, have abandoned their applications for asylum, with many of them to return home, according to statistics in a new evaluation of the policy, released this week by the Department of Homeland Security.

The Directive, known officially as the protection of migrants protocols, sends migrants to apply for asylum at the southern border back to Mexico for the duration of the immigration procedure. It is a cornerstone of the administration’s efforts to end “catch and release”, with the help of migrants are published in the United States, to hear while their cases are.


Hearings were held in border cities such as Laredo, Texas, where a temporary court rooms were set up, which are from the border, and migrants, put before a judge via video conference.

So far, the administration more than 55,000 migrants have returned to Mexico. The assessment describes the policy as an “indispensable tool in the management of the current crisis on the southern border and the restoration of the integrity of the immigration system.” It says that it has completed nearly 13000 cases as of Oct. 21.


The new assessment, significantly, cited estimates from Customs and Border Protection (CBP) that some 20,000 migrants are currently protected in Mexico near the US border, as you can still try the item to the United States, the assessment says that the number, though, suggests, “with a significant proportion of the 55,000+ MPP have been chosen by the returnees, of their claims.”

The report notes that the work of the International Organisation for Migration, supported in part by the U.S. government, that help migrants, back home for free if you choose to do this. It says that, as in October, almost 900 migrants have participated in this program.

The statistics a little more meat on the bones, what have the officials been saying for months, specifically that many of those in the MPP, especially those who do not have a legitimate asylum claim — realize that you will not back into the interior and then just back home. These returning migrants can then discourage others from the trip, reducing the “pull factors” that the people of the North are illegal.

“We are now the message that if you come here as economic migrants, you will not be allowed in the United States,” Acting CBP Commissioner Mark Morgan, who said the MPP has called a “game changer,” told reporters this month. “That’s a lot of people go to return.”

The MPP policy has been one of the most effective parts of the administration against asylum seekers and illegal immigration, but also one of the most controversial. Critics claim that the migrants are sent to the camps with filthy conditions and are also at risk of violence, cartels.


“Not only does this policy do nothing to protect either migrants or US interests, but we have grave concerns about the legality of the recent efforts to expand it, and the dangerous conditions endured it forces the asylum seekers while they wait for their cases to be heard,” said a letter from two dozen Senate Democrats sent in August, Secretary of state, Mike Pompeo, and Acting DHS Secretary Kevin McAleenan.

But government representatives have said that it allows for cases to be processed quickly, with the first hearings, usually within a couple of months.

“MPP-returnees can be granted with meritorious claims for relief or protection within a period of months, rather than in a state of limbo for years, awaiting immigration court proceedings in the United States,” says the assessment.

In relation to the interests of the American citizen, has claimed the administration, he was the guarantor for the sharp decline in migrant apprehensions at the border have fallen by more than 60 percent since the highs in may.


MPP was the first to be in January, but was extended over the summer in the midst of a new agreement with the Mexican government established, in June. The United States is eager to continue to expand the policy since then.


This week, DHS announced that it had begun processing migrants under the MPP in Eagle Pass, Texas-bringing to six the total number of ports of entry, where the MPP is in progress.

“We are confident, judging from the program, the integrity, and the ability of asylum applications quickly and with all due process, McAleenan said in a statement. “We have seen people granted asylum, and many more fraudulent or non-meritorious cases closed. MPP was – and remains – an essential part of this effort.”
