Migrant Protection Protocols Finally Come To An End
Austin Kocher, research assistant professor at Newhouse with the Transactional Research Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), was interviewed by Mother Jones for the piece, “One Family’s Escape From Trump’s Border Hell: A 130-Week Diary.” He also provided expertise for the New York Times and NPR and was quoted in editorials for Border Report and The Daily Caller.
Kocher discussed the change in legislation regarding immigration from Mexico under the Biden Administration. Kocher provided data for this article highlighting that ‘Of the roughly 25,000 people who had pending cases at the time, more than 11,300 have entered the United States to continue asylum claims from here, according to the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees and the Department of Homeland Security. They’ve transferred their cases to cities across the United States and, according to data from TRAC at Syracuse University, most MPP cases are being transferred to Miami, Orlando, Houston, Dallas, and San Antonio.’
