The recent mass gathering of mostly Haitian-nationals at the US Southern border and the US government response elicited a great deal of discussion about Title 42, which the US government has used to prohibit entry of foreign nationals wishing to seek asylum in the US. Title 42, a public health measure, and other US border and immigration policies such as MPP/Remain in Mexico have been assessed largely through a domestic lens, as to whether they are necessary and proper as per US law. Given that these measures have a far-reaching impact beyond US borders, this event will explore how such policies comply with regional and international legal obligations, and what effect such policies have on other countries, namely Mexico. Experts involved in actions before the Inter-American Commission and advocates working in Mexico will share insights.
