DHS Statement on First Step in Process to Address Individuals in Mexico with Active MPP Cases

DHS began the first step in a phased approach to restore safe and orderly processing at the Southwest Border. DHS and its international partners have now initiated the virtual registration process for individuals who had been forced to return to Mexico under the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) and have a pending case before the Executive Office for Immigration Review (EOIR). The United States is continuing to strictly enforce existing immigration laws and border security measures. Individuals should not approach the border, including at designated ports of entry, unless and until they are approved and receive appointment information through the remote registration process.

Los Protocolos de Protección a Migrantes (Archivo)

Los Protocolos de Protección a Migrantes [Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP)] constituyen una acción gubernamental de los Estados Unidos [U.S. Government (USG)] mediante la cual los ciudadanos y nacionales de países aparte de México, que llegan a los Estados Unidos por tierra desde México -- sea o no sea a través de un puerto de entrada -- podrían ser devueltos a México de conformidad con la Sección 235(b)(2)(C) de la Ley de Inmigración y Nacionalidad [Immigration and Nationality Act (INA)] mientras sus procedimientos de remoción se encuentren pendientes en los Estados Unidos bajo la Sección 240 de la INA.

Metrics and Measures

The Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) are a U.S. Government (USG) action whereby citizens and nationals of countries other than Mexico arriving in the United States by land from Mexico -- whether or not at a point of entry -- may be returned to Mexico pursuant to Section 235(b)(2)(C) of the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA) while their U.S. removal proceedings are pending under Section 240 of the INA. MPP is a core component of the USG’s efforts to address the migration crisis along the U.S.-Mexico border.
