Trump 'Remain In Mexico Plan' Initiating Today Endangers Migrants' Lives - Advocacy Group
The Trump administration's launching of the Remain in Mexico Plan on Friday will endanger the lives of migrants seeking asylum in the United States, Women's Refugee Commission's Migrant Rights and Justice Director Michelle Brane said in a press release
"Today's action by the Trump administration to send asylum-seekers back to Mexico is disgraceful and will result in the loss of life for vulnerable people seeking safety," Brane said in the release on Friday.
Previously, immigrants who passed the so-called credible fear interview could stay in the United States while waiting for the courts to decide on their asylum cases.
Brane pointed out that implementing the Remain in Mexico policy is a violation of US and international law.
