Texas bishop condemns ‘Remain in Mexico’ policy
October 27, 2021
CWN Editor's Note: Bishop Mark Seitz of El Paso, Texas, has demanded an immediate end to the “Remain in Mexico” policy, which blocks migrants from entering the US until their application for legal entry has been processed.
Bishop Seitz urged President Biden, “as a person who values your Catholic faith and the leader of our country,” to end the “disastrous policies of deterrence” that slow immigration and “put in place at the border humane policies.”
The “Remain in Mexico” policy was abolished by President Biden shortly after he took office, but a court ruling overturned that decision.
