Border Tent Courts

DHS has erected tent structures in Laredo and Brownsville, Texas, where individuals subjected to the Migrant Protection Protocols, commonly known as the Remain in Mexico Program, will have their cases heard via video teleconference by an immigration judge in another location. A group of Democratic leaders in the House of Representatives sent a letter to the DHS and DOJ Inspectors General calling for an investigation of the use of tent facilities to adjudicate immigration hearings via video teleconference for asylum seekers subject to the “Remain in Mexico” program.
