Geoff Lamoureux was featured in a story that aired for KYMA and KECY-TV on the Supreme Court’s decision to allow the Biden administration to end the “Remain in Mexico” policy.
Established by President Trump, the controversial policy mandated that migrants seeking asylum must wait for their court hearing in Mexico. The story details President Biden’s previous attempt to end the policy that was later blocked by a lower court. It also shares common arguments against the policy, including how it makes obtaining counsel more difficult for migrants, and it subjects migrants to dangerous conditions.
“There have been reports of hundreds of assaults, rapes, kidnappings, and tortures for those who are forced to remain in Mexico, which in many cases is just as dangerous as the other country they’re fleeing from,” Geoff shares.
