During Thursday’s broadcast of Fox News Channel’s ‘America’s Newsroom,’ Rep. Henry Cuellar (D-TX) reacted to the Supreme Court’s ruling allowing the Biden administration to scrap protective protocols of Migration (MPP), also known as Stay in Mexico policy stating that people seeking asylum must stay in Mexico while their claims are adjudicated as long as they can have a lawyer to present their case and that they can safely stay in Mexico, and not doing so means giving most people false hope by allowing them to enter the United States when only “10-12% will get asylum” .
Cuellar said: “My position is that in this case, if you make them stay in Mexico and they have access to a lawyer, they want to come and present their case and they are in a safe situation, then we should do this . Because otherwise there are so many people coming in — coming to the United States. And a lot of them have false hopes because if you have a hundred people, only 10-12% will get asylum. … So why are we leaving 100% when we should be allowing only 10-12% of these people to enter the United States?
