From Texas Public Radio:
The Mexican government is attempting to clear out one of the tent encampments in Matamoros where more than 1,500 asylum seekers have been living for months.
These families are waiting for their immigration court cases to move forward in the U.S. under President Donald Trump’s Remain in Mexico policy.
The Mexican government has tried to get people out of the encampment for months. Most recently, officials hope migrants will move under new, tent-like structures that were just built nearby.
