McALLEN, Texas (Border Report) — The South Texas cities of McAllen and Laredo will begin receiving asylum-seekers who have been living across the border in Mexico under the Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP) program, which is informally known as “Remain in Mexico.”

The first group of asylum-seekers arrived Monday in McAllen, Sister Norma Pimentel, who runs Catholic Charities of the Rio Grande Valley, told Border Report. They were all tested for coronavirus in Mexico prior to being brought on a bus via the McAllen-Hidalgo-Reynosa International Bridge.
