Migrants sent to Juarez

News

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – New groups of asylum seekers were returned to Juarez yesterday, that’s across the border from El Paso.

This is part of an extended agreement with the United States that forces migrants to wait in Mexico for the outcome of their U.S. asylum claims.

Close to 12,000 people have returned to Mexico since it began back in January according to official reports.

Mexican authorities have buses at Juarez Immigration Office to help those migrants who have been returned to Mexico return home, should they wish to do so.
