Sent back south across the U.S.-Mexico border under the Trump administration's controversial “remain in Mexico” program, migrants seeking asylum in the U.S. are instead being bused farther into the Mexican interior. Some are taken to nearby Monterey, others all the way to the state of Chiapas next to the Guatemalan border.
Quality journalism doesn't come free
Perhaps it goes without saying — but producing quality journalism isn't cheap. At a time when newsroom resources and revenue across the country are declining, The Texas Tribune remains committed to sustaining our mission: creating a more engaged and informed Texas with every story we cover, every event we convene and every newsletter we send. As a nonprofit newsroom, we rely on members to help keep our stories free and our events open to the public. Do you value our journalism? Show us with your support.
