Federal Court Blocks Administration Migrant Protection Program (MPP)

U.S. District Judge Richard ¬Seeborg in San Francisco has blocked the administration’s plan to make Asylum seekers wait in Mexico while their claims progress through the system. The Plan, known [perhaps ironically] as the “Migrant Protection Protocols,” had begun in January with those seeking asylum at a single entry point and had been expanded to several others, with plans by the administration to continue expanding the practice of returning asylum seekers to Mexico under an agreement with the Mexican government.
