For months the vast majority of the requests for humanitarian parole for vulnerable immigrants in Nogales didn't get a response response. Now attorneys are pushing for more transparency and accountability in an opaque process. buzzfeednews.com/article/ado…

Title 42 is a border expulsions order the Trump admin put in place to prevent the right to seek #asylum – under the guise of public health. And guess what? The Biden admin still has it in place. @POTUS must #EndTitle42 now. Read our latest report: phr.org/our-work/resources/n…

Of the 82 people who were enrolled in MPP this week so far, only five had access to legal counsel--raising ongoing concerns about access to due process.
The controversial "remain in Mexico" program was restarted at the El Paso port of entry in December. This week, immigration court hearings began for program enrollees in El Paso. Read about what's been happening inside the courtrooms, from @ziembavision. elpasomatters.org/2022/01/05…

Now that we have largely stopped receiving guests from the camp in Del Rio, TX, at our houses of hospitality, Annunciation House offers this reflection on the government's treatment of #HaitianRefugees, and of Black migrants and refugees in general: annunciationhouse.org/2021/1…

Because we primarily serve migrants and refugees, we sometimes focus on the narrative that "we are a nation of immigrants--" which fails to recognize the first peoples of this land. Today we honor the original inhabitants, whose descendents are still here today. (1/2)

Volunteers are our lifeblood. Thanks to everyone in the El Paso community who has helped us welcome refugees in these last few busy weeks.

Pres Biden, we're glad you acknowledge how horrible the publicized treatment of Haitian migrants at Del Rio has been, but don't think for a minute that these were isolated events by a few "bad apples." The whole attitude and structure of US border enforcement... (1/2)
Pres Biden on Haitian migrants: "I take responsibility. I'm president. ... It was horrible to see. To see people treated like they did, horses nearly running them over, people being strapped. It's outrageous. I promise you those people will pay. ... There will be consequences."

views refugees as criminals and "illegals." The cruelty isn't a bug; it's a feature. True, many BP agents do their work with integrity and respect for human dignity. But they're part of a system that views migrants only as a burden and a threat. #DelRioBridge #HaitianRefugees
