Nomaan Merchant Associated Press Published 1:24 PM EDT Jul 19, 2019 Houston – The U.S. government on Friday expanded its policy requiring asylum seekers to wait outside the country to one of Mexico’s most dangerous cities, where thousands of people are already camped, some for several months. The Department of Homeland Security said Friday that it would implement its Migrant Protection Protocols in Brownsville, Texas, across the border from Matamoros, Mexico. DHS says it anticipates the first asylum seekers will be sent back to Mexico starting Friday. Under the so-called “Remain in Mexico” policy, asylum seekers are briefly processed and given a date to return for an immigration court hearing before being sent back across the southern border. Since January, the policy has been implemented at several border cities including San Diego and El Paso, Texas.

Mark Hicks and Sarah Rahal The Detroit News Published 9:29 PM EST Jan 15, 2019 A judge has ordered the return of a deported Iraqi detainee following a quixotic multi-country bid to find the man after the federal government realized it had mistakenly removed him. The order filed Tuesday in U.S. District Court in Detroit sets a Jan. 24 deadline for the return of the former detainee, Muneer Subaihani. “Respondents shall place Mr. Subaihani on an order of supervision once he arrives in the United States,” Judge Mark Goldsmith wrote. The filing is the latest development in a class-action lawsuit the ACLU filed nearly two years ago to halt federal immigration officials from deporting more than 1,400 Iraqi nationals swept up in ICE raids in 2017. The Iraqis were arrested across the country without warning and threatened with immediate deportation, though many came here as children and have lived and worked in the United States for decades, ACLU officials … [Read more...] about Judge: Deported Iraqi detainee must be returned to U.S.
