Searching for Fairness and TransparencyIn July, the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) expanded the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), better known as the Remain in Mexico policy, to include Laredo and Brownsville. DHS has built massive temporary tent facilities that are functioning as virtual immigration courtrooms for MPP cases. AILA Senior Policy Counsel Laura Lynch and Policy Counsel Leidy Perez-Davis went to Texas to observe these port courts and learn more about the new policies and procedures in place.
