Skip to comments.House to investigate Trump 'remain in Mexico' policy
Posted on 01/14/2020 8:50:42 AM PST by Hojczyk
The House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday announced that it plans to investigate the Department of Homeland Security's Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), which encourages migrants from Central America to seek asylum in Mexico rather than in the U.S.
News of the letter comes just hours after Fox News reported that the Trump administration has begun sending Mexican migrants from non-border states on flights to central Mexico, a policy that reportedly began last month.
DHS officials told the news outlet that the agency could fly two flights a week totaling 250 migrants per week under the program.
Dozens of Senate Democrats wrote a letter to DHS last year opposing the policy, writing at the time that the U.S. has "turned its back on its domestic and international legal obligations by forcing men, women, and children to await resolution of their U.S. asylum cases in parts of Mexico plagued by violence."
"It is imperative that the United States end this reckless course of action and reaffirm its commitment to the principles of due process on which this country was founded," they wrote in August.

Keep showing your red monkey’s asses, Democrats!! NORMAL people now KNOW you are HATE FILLED and CRA CRA!
President Trump should be moving faster, so they get completely bogged down in investigations.
The dirty little secret is LEGAL immigrants hate ILLEGALS..
They may give Trump the win in 2020...he has to win by 1000,000 votes in all the swing states to over come voter fraud..40,000 is not enough...the democrats were asleep in 2016...because Hillary was 90 per cent the winner in the polls
“forcing men, women, and children to await resolution of their U.S. asylum cases in parts of Mexico plagued by violence.”
That’s because America doesn’t want its “parts” to become plagued by violence.
Do some ####ing work!!!
why isn’t congress a part time job for 50k that meets maybe 8 months out of the year and That’s not even needed!
Go to Youtube. Visit the gumball theory on immigration.
Dims gotta import even more voters!
HAHAHA!..They want ‘the illegal vote’ they are sure to try for. Desperate efforts because they know US Citizens aren’t going to vote for their candidate.
If Trump said he’s letting them all in the Dems would say let them remain in Mexico , LOL The Dems are very Contrary
This is not about violence in mexico for illegals...rather getting illegals into the country ‘before the election’ so they can vote.
The other dirty little secret is that the vast majority of assylum applicants are seaking opportunity ... not assylum
When the democrats can’t come up with any productive ideas just investigate something and stall any productive ideas anyone else has.
They cherish “due process” for illegals. “Due process” includes housing, food, medical care, education for the kiddies, free wifi, a car, and big fat cigars.
I wish they’d investigate the huge number of investigations they’ve launched. That investigation alone could take a decade and a hundred million dollars.
Still not a thing done for the American people in an year.
Shouldn’t these libtards be interviewing John Bolton?
While I approve of this pilot program, it is too small by a factor of at least 1,000. I'd like to send 250,000 illegals per week back to Mexico or to their home countries . . . 12 million illegals per year. The DHS program is a small drop in a very large illegal bucket. Deport all illegals. No exceptions. Hold all asylum claimants outside our country until their claims are investigated and approved, and even then we can probably do more good keeping them in Mexico than bringing them to our much more expensive country.
