Charlotte Women United Speaker – Immigration

In case you missed the speakers at the Charlotte Women United March last Saturday you may want to listen to the speaker who delivered the speech on Immigration. Angelica ‘Lica’ Acosta Garnett gave a wonderful speech. On January 24th, 2019 the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) announced it would begin forcing some asylum seekers arriving at our southern border to remain in Mexico while they apply for asylum, a policy known as the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) or “Remain in Mexico”. That Policy just turned 1-year old this week. Lica referenced the program in her speech. I hope you will take time to listen to what she had to say and to read about Remain in Mexico if you want to know more about it.

In addition the asylum Grant Rate with the Remain in Mexico program is almost zero as reported by the Los Angeles Times. Hope you will take time to learn about courts at the Border.
