160 Personnel Deployed to Manage El Paso Asylum Seekers

Courts have blocked “remain in Mexico” policy

The Migrant Protection Protocols, also known as the “Remain in Mexico” program, keeps southern border asylum seekers in Mexico while the U.S. Government processes their request for protection. This has been a key facet of President Trump’s administration, and has been criticized for being inhumane. On Wednesday, the U.S. Appeals court ruled against the enforcement of the program in Arizona and California.

Unsure of whether or not the high court will rule against them in their appeal against the Appeals court, the Federal Government deployed 160 Border Patrol personnel to the entry points of El Paso and San Diego on Friday. The agents were expected to reach their destinations by Saturday morning.

As the Lord Leads, Pray with Us…

  • That President Trump would continue to look out for the United States in all his dealings.
  • For the Federal Courts as they consider along with the president how best to follow our laws.
  • For the safety of the deployed border patrol agents as they travel, patrol, and fulfill their duties.
