Under former President Donald Trump, the US forced migrants from Central America and other parts of the world seeking asylum on the southern border to remain in Mexico pending their hearings in the US immigration court.

More than 70,000 people were there subject to the program. Many waited months, if not years, in poor conditions and at risk of extortion, sexual assault, and kidnapping. The Biden government estimates that around 25,000 migrants still have active cases. This group is authorized for the first phase of the rollback.

The so-called “stay in Mexico” policy, which came into effect in January 2019, was an unprecedented departure from previous protocols that allowed migrants to enter the United States during their immigration negotiations.
