Federal judge blocks Trump administration's 'remain in Mexico' policy

Federal judge blocks Trump administration's 'remain in Mexico' policy | 09 April 2019 | A judge for the US District Court for the Northern District of California granted a preliminary injunction Monday to halt the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) that were sending certain asylum seekers back across the Mexico border while they await a court determination. The policy was intended to reduce the flood of immigrants. The plaintiffs in the case, 11 asylum seekers who were sent back across the border, argued the policies are "wholly inadequate for ensuring that those who face persecution, torture, or death in Mexico will not be erroneously returned." They also argued that remaining in Mexico denied them the opportunity to adequately prepare their case.
