Al Jazeera English published this video item, entitled “‘Remain in Mexico’: US resumes Trump-era immigration programme” – below is their description.

The Biden administration has revived a policy that former US President Donald Trump put in place regarding making asylum seekers wait in Mexico, while they wait for their cases to be processed.

President Joe Biden had previously tried to rescind the Remain in Mexico policy but two US courts blocked his move.

Human rights activists are worried it means migrants and refugees could be subject to abuses.
