Thousands of migrants placed in the Trump administration’s “Remain in Mexico” program are living in rows of tents in the Mexican city of Matamoros, often for months, as their asylum applications work their way through U.S. courts. ⠀
Matamoros—which lies across the Rio Grande from Brownsville, Texas, and which the U.S. State Department ranks as one of the most dangerous cities in Mexico—has become one of the largest destinations for asylum applicants sent back under the program. ⠀
Most of them bathe and wash their clothes in the river. In recent weeks, a semi-permanent bathroom complex was built, along with a medical tent and several stores of donated toys and clothes. ⠀

Shame on Mexico.. smugglers and Coyotes take their money and let them sleep on the streets
❤️🇺🇸 Citizens only!
The WALL NEEDS TO BE BULIT, ALL HERION COMES FROM MEXIO. CUT ALL TIES from MEXICO AND YOU WILL SEE A DROP. BUT NO WE BELIEVE IN “FAIR LAW”. WHICH is B.S MIGHT AS WELL FALL UNDER DICTATORSHIP AND KILL
This is such bad US policy!
Gracias Presidente Trump.
"Placed in"??? I'd say they placed themselves and can leave at any time.
Que horror pobre gente
Still better than trying to claim asylum in Australia. While their applications are processed, the majority are subjected to mandatory incarnation. Instead of regular jails, usually "offshore detention" centers are used. Basically as extra judicial prisons, operating outside of the tradition court system (kind of like how the US used Gitmo). Applications can take years to process, and the only reliable way to get released early, is to agree to be deported. Suffice to say, the government REALLY doesn't like asylum seekers/refugees/undocumented immigrants.
And this is our problem? Stay an fix your own countries!
Spend as much focus, time and resources in this country helping the homeless, our veterans and those in poverty then we can talk about those in Mexico!
Not our problem. End of story.
So, I thought they fled their country because of violence.
Literally looks like San Fran
Still nicer than San Francisco .
They should go to china.
San Francisco is richer than most countries in the world, and yet there are thousands of homeless drug addicts (US citizens) roaming it's streets. Is the job of a country to take care of its people or other people first?
Where is a picture of homeless American Veterans? Your compassion seems a bit off kilter to me. Let’s take care of America’s citizens please. Be brave - try using your voice for that cause!
