Thousands of migrants sent back to Mexico under Trump policy have given up their asylum claims according to DHS.
Thousands of migrants that were returned to Mexico under the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” plan have given up their asylum claims, with many of them returning home, according to statistics included in a new assessment of the policy released this week by the DHS.

Before President Donald Trump acted, foreigners who entered the United States illegally and sought to claim asylum were processed and then … released into the United States.
They were then required to return for a hearing on their status, but that would usually take months, sometimes years.
Then the Trump administration enacted the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), which became known as the “Remain In Mexico” policy. The protocols did just that: foreigners who entered the U.S. illegally were processed, then released into Mexico to await their hearings.
Instead of waiting, though, thousands of migrants who were returned to Mexico gave up their asylum claims and went home, Fox News reports.
The policy, known formally as the Migrant Protection Protocols, sends migrants seeking asylum at the southern border back to Mexico for the duration of immigration proceedings. It is a cornerstone of the administration’s efforts to end “catch and release,” by which migrants are released into the U.S. while their cases are heard. More

President Donald Trump was right, once again. Here’s the thing, they never actually had a legitimate claim for asylum. They were exploiting the law by asking for it. Getting a court days years in the future then never showing up and no one really doing anything about it. Until now. Thank you, President Trump.Don't forget to Like Freedom Outpost on Facebook and Twitter, and follow our friends at RepublicanLegion.com.
