More than 5,000 asylum seekers have been returned under "Remain in Mexico" policy

MAY 13, 2019 / 9:30 PM / CBS NEWS

    More than 5,000 Central American asylum seekers have been returned to Mexico under the Trump administration's controversial "Remain in Mexico" policy, a Mexican government official told CBS News on Monday. The policy is aimed at deterring an unprecedented flow of migrant families heading to the southwestern border.

    As of this week, 5,273 migrants from Guatemala, Honduras and El Salvador — collectively known as the "Northern Triangle" — have been returned to Mexico to await their court hearing in the U.S., the official said. A federal U.S. appellate court has allowed the administration to continue implementing "Remain in Mexico" while it reviews a legal challenge to the practice, which immigrant advocates believe puts migrants at risk.

It should be 50,000.
Or... 500,000.
