Asylum Seekers Enter US As Biden Ends “Remain In Mexico” Policy

MATAMOROS, MEXICO – FEBRUARY 07: A Salvadorian girl sits near a Biden-Harris campaign poster inside a camp for asylum seekers on February 07, 2021 in Matamoros, Mexico. Many of the some 600 people in the camp, most from Central America, have been living there for up to a year, waiting for an immigration court hearing across the bridge in Brownsville, Texas. The camp originally sprang up due to former President Trump’s “Remain in Mexico” policy, where asylum seekers had to wait in Mexico during the legal process. The courts were then suspended due to the pandemic. Since the inauguration of President Joe Biden, other asylum seekers have begun crossing the Rio Grande into Texas, and immigration authorities have been releasing them pending court hearings. The camp dwellers, however, say they have yet to receive such due process. (Photo by John Moore/Getty Images)
