US detained nearly one million migrants in 12 months

Acting Commissioner of Customs and Border Protection Mark Morgan speaks during a briefing at the White House Tuesday Oct. 8 2019 in Washington

Supporters of the policy said releasing asylum-seekers into the USA with notices to appear in court would encourage more people to come.

According to Castro there was also at least one member of the group living with a disability.

More than 42,000 people have been returned to Mexico since MPP took effect in January.

"With MPP, migrants are receiving due process and protection while the United States is restoring integrity to our immigration system", he said.

Although Castro was told that officials would hear the cases of the asylum seekers, they lied.

Mexico has so far resisted signing any kind of "safe third country" agreement that would force migrants to seek refuge there instead of the United States.

Under the policy, migrants have to wait in Mexico before their asylum claims are considered. MPP is now facing legal challenges, as well as objections from activists that the protocols involves migrants being sent back to potentially risky areas where they can be attacked by smugglers and gangs. "These 12 people have been in CBP custody for 3 hours, which means that each person had less than 15 minutes for their non-refoulement interviews", the group tweeted in a statement.

Police said 33 activists were taken to their premises and three were arrested for resisting orders by anti-riot officers. The group's protesters have succeeded before in disrupting life in London in hopes of gaining attention to their cause.

"If these people-LGBTQ migrants who have been assaulted for who they are in the camps, disabled people, children-do not meet the criteria for "vulnerable populations, ' then the "vulnerable" exemptions in 'Remain in Mexico" are lip service", the rights group said.

"We know how to do this", Castro said.

Morgan was effusive in his praise for the Mexican government's efforts to help the Trump administration deter migrants. There are reports that they have even been attacked by other potential asylum-seekers as they wait in Mexico.

Of course, the 12 asylum seekers are far from alone in being denied a chance to remain in the USA while their cases are being processed.

Newsweek has contacted CBP for comment for this article.

Democratic presidential candidate Julian Castro walks over the Gateway International Bridge Monday, Oct. 7, 2019, on his visit to the migrant campsite in Matamoros, Mexico.

USA apprehensions of undocumented immigrants entering the United States illegally has dropped for the fourth consecutive month, Acting Customs and Border Protections (CBP) Commissioner Mark Morgan said during a press briefing on Tuesday.
