Post-MPP Asylum Cases

The Trump administration’s “Migrant Protection Protocols,” or “MPP” forced tens of thousands of asylum seekers to live in Mexico while their cases were pending in U.S. immigration courts. The Biden Administration has allowed thousands of people who were subjected to MPP into the U.S., where they now await their asylum hearings. The materials on this page will assist attorneys representing asylum seekers formerly in MPP.
