5th Circuit Amicus Brief in State of Texas, State of Missouri v Biden: HRF Opposes MPP on the Merits

The Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) also known as the "Remain in Mexico" policy was a humanitarian catastrophe: asylum seekers were murdered, raped, kidnapped, extorted, and compelled to live in squalid conditions where they faced significant procedural barriers to meaningfully presenting their protection claims.

Human Rights First was joined by the American Immigration Council, the Center for Gender and Refugee Studies, and the Southern Poverty Law Center in submitting an amicus brief to the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals opposing MPP on its merits. In addition, seventy organizations, law school clinics, and former immigration judges signed on.
