Plan proposes to keep asylum seekers in Mexico

As thousands of immigrants reach the southern border of the United States, concerns over immigration policies are growing. The majority of these individuals are looking to obtain asylum in the United States in hopes of escaping the dangers of their homelands. However, they are already facing a number of difficulties, and their hardships may only grow.

New York readers may be interested in another proposal that has been made in relation to immigration laws regarding asylum. Under current immigration policy, individuals who have filed for asylum have been able to live in the United States while their cases go through the necessary processes. Under this new proposal, titled "Remain in Mexico," asylum seekers would have to stay in Mexico while their cases are being processed in the United States.

The report mentioned that Mexico does not allow those seeking asylum in other countries to stay in the country. It was unclear how this fact may affect the proposal. However, it was also noted that no set actions had been put in place to have the plan move forward as of yet. As part of the plan, immigrants would have to prove that they could face persecution in Mexico in order to come to the United States while their cases are processed.

It is understandable for individuals to want to find a safe place for themselves and their families. Unfortunately, numerous people seeking asylum are facing more roadblocks along the way. Changes to immigration policies undoubtedly have them feeling concerned and confused. In such cases, it may help to have legal advocates on their sides. Interested individuals may want to contact New York immigration law attorneys to gain information on their options.
