WASHINGTON (KVEO) — US says it will give another chance to thousands denied asylum under Trump-era policy that forced them to wait in Mexico.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced it expanded the criteria for the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) enrolled individuals that are eligible for processing into the United States.
On June 23, 2021, DHS will include MPP enrollees that had cases terminated or were ordered removed while not present at their hearings to be eligible for processing.
DHS will continue to process for entry into the United States MPP enrollees with pending proceedings. Individuals who may be eligible for processing should stay where they are currently located.
