San Diego Immigration Judges Disrupting 'Remain in Mexico' Policy

Immigration judges in San Diego are disrupting the Trump administration's policy on sending asylum seekers back to Mexico by terminating such cases at a higher rate than seen in any other court in the country.
The San Diego judges terminated 33% of more than 12,600 Migrant Protection Protocols cases, or the "Remain in Mexico" policy, according to data collected by the Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse at Syracuse University, reports The Wall Street Journal.
In comparison, in El Paso, the busiest immigration court, judges terminated fewer than 1% of more than 14,000 such cases.
Under MPP, migrants who enter the U.S. illegally or who appear at official places of entry along the U.S. border seeking asylum are sent to Mexico, where they await future American court dates.
In San Diego, the nine judges repeatedly rule that due process of asylum seekers waiting in Mexico were violated, including that they had not been properly notified of their court dates.
