From the opening statement of Kathleen M. Rice: "Today we will examine the implementation of the Migrant Protection Protocols more commonly known as the Remain-in-Mexico program. This morning we will hear the perspective of practitioners who witness the program's impact on the ground. Since this program went into effect on January 18, 2019, the Remain-in-Mexico Policy has forced tens of thousands of asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their claims are processed."
