Take Action on MPP

Asylum seekers must not "Remain in Mexico"

In response to a recent court order, the Biden Administration is poised to reinstate the harmful “Remain in Mexico” policy as early as next month. 

​​​​ “Remain in Mexico”- also known as the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) – forced thousands of individuals and families to live in dangerous and uncertain circumstances in Mexico as they waited for their asylum claims to be processed.  

Initially introduced in January 2019, the Biden Administration terminated MPP earlier this year but they are now putting in place plans to restart the program rather than take steps to respond to the court order. As Jesuit partners working with migrants and asylum seekers in the U.S. and Mexico, please join us in speaking out against this inhumane policy.   

In partnership with Ignatian Solidarity Network,  Jesuit Conference Office of Justice and Ecology, and  Kino Border Initiative.
