Brazilians could be included in the Remain in Mexico program.


There has been a recent increase in Brazilians seeking asylum at the U.S.-Mexico border. In response to this increase, the Trump administration has been weighing whether to send Brazilian asylum seekers to Mexico under the Remain in Mexico program. The government is also considering whether to send the asylum seekers to another country like Honduras, with whom the U.S. has an asylum deal. There are already criticisms of Remain in Mexico, but an additional one for Brazilian asylum seekers is that they do not speak Spanish natively and would be unable to effectively communicate in Mexico. Though arrests of Brazilian asylum seekers are up, overall border arrests have decreased.
