Using the U.S. Department of Homeland Security’s name for the plan—initially called the “Remain in Mexico” policy—the U.S. embassy in Mexico City confirmed in a statement that “the United States has begun implementing the Migrant Protection Protocols.”

As immigrant rights advocates challenge the legality of the policy, some have said that calling it the “Illegal Return of Asylum Seekers Scheme” would be more accurate.

The asylum “waiting” policy, announced last month, comes from an administration that has also forcibly separated thousands of migrant children from their parents, prompted the longest ever government shutdown in pursuit of billions of dollars in funding for a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border, and threatened to declare a national emergency to build the wall.

As the Trump administration continues to enact racist policies aimed at detering asylum seekers from entering the United States, Gomez Perdomo, who traveled as part of a caravan from Honduras that arrived in November, told the Post he was shocked to be sent back to Mexico.

“I said to myself, ‘I don’t know what’s happening, and I don’t know what will happen in this case,'” he said. “After I have spent so much time battling, all the time I’ve spent outside my country, to come to this place with a goal and to lose. I have not advanced at all. Instead I seem to have gone backward.”
