2/13/20, New Yorker: How the Trump Administration Uses the “Hidden Weapons” of Immigration Law

“If there was one thing that I think the nation needs to be paying more attention to right now, it’s the Remain in Mexico policy, the so-called Migrant Protection Protocols. I’ve been down to the border, I’ve been to Ciudad Juárez, I’ve talked to people in this program. It is a stain on the rule of law, and it has politicized the immigration-court system in a way that has never been done before, and it is actively leading to thousands of children and families being put into enormous amounts of danger on a day-to-day basis, and yet it has never broken through to the same extent as when U.S. agents were tearing kids from their parents’ arms, because it’s out of sight and out of mind on the other side of the border. I often like to say the Trump Administration realized that Americans would rise up in anger when it saw our own government officials doing horrific things to people at the border, so what they did is they exported that—they outsourced the violence, and the crime, and the danger to the cartels in Mexico and let the cartels do the deterrence work that our agents were no longer able to do.”
