900 asylum seekers returned to wait in Mexican border city

They are among nearly 3,000 people with pending U.S. immigration proceedings who have been sent back to wait in Mexico's Tamaulipas state, where the U.S. State Department warns Americans to avoid all travel due to high levels of violence and kidnapping.

Under ["]the program["], migrants who turn themselves over to U.S. authorities and, in most cases, request asylum, are returned to Mexico after being given a court date. To pursue their asylum cases they have to wait in Mexico, crossing only for court dates in what is a months-long process.
[...]
So far more than 20,000 migrants have been returned all along the border to wait in Mexico, Mexican officials say.

Border thwarting to annoy the US House counsel, for sure

Diversity is the key to economic and political evolution.
