Despite public outcry and legal challenges, DHS has persisted in the expansion and implementation of its immoral, life-threatening practice of forcing certain asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while their case is processed. CLINIC renewed its February 2019 interfaith letter opposing this policy in response to requests by faith leaders and organizations, and over 650 faith-based organizations and leaders signed on requesting the termination of the Remain in Mexico policy. The letter requests DHS to uphold our asylum law and respect asylum seekers and others seeking protection at our Southern border.
