The American Immigration Council submitted a written statement to the House Committee on Homeland Security for a November 19, 2019 hearing on the “Examining the Human Rights and Legal Implications of DHS’s ‘Remain in Mexico’ Policy.” The statement highlights the Council’s concerns regarding the unjust and inhumane policy which has placed tens of thousands of asylum seekers at risk of harm while waiting in Mexico.

The statement also highlights critical information that the Council and its partner organizations collected and conveyed to the Department of Homeland Security documenting the risk of harm that families face in Mexico, and uplifts the stories of three mothers and their children who were subject to the Remain in Mexico policy and harmed as a result of it.
