After Tour & Briefing of Secretive Remain in Mexico Court, Amnesty International USA & Other Rights Groups Demand Answers

February 23, 2020

On Friday, February 21, 2020, Amnesty International USA, the American Immigration Lawyers’ Association, the American Immigration Council, Lawyers for Good Government, Human Rights First, and Texas Civil Rights Project jointly sent a letter expressing our grave concerns following a January 2020 tour and briefing at a secretive new tent court in Laredo, Texas, which was constructed exclusively to hear cases of individuals forced to remain in Mexico for the duration of their U.S. asylum proceedings.

A PDF version of the letter is available here. For more information, please contact Charanya Krishnaswami, Americas Advocacy Director, at [email protected].
