Few Granted Asylum Under MPP 2.0

TRAC, June 14, 2022

"Case-by-case Immigration Court records current as of the end of May 2022 show that during the last six months, over 5,000 asylum seekers have been required to remain in Mexico under the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) while awaiting their Immigration Court hearings. Cases in MPP are generally being completed within the 180-day time frame set by the administration, but the problem with low rates of access to attorneys that plagued the first implementation of MPP continue this year. This report provides an initial examination of how this court-ordered reimplementation of MPP—commonly referred to as MPP 2.0—is working since it restarted last December 2021."
