U.S. Customs and Border Protection officers and agents process a small group of asylum-seekers who have active applications under the Migrant Protection Protocols at the Paso del Norte Port of Entry in El Paso, Texas, February 26, 2021. Under the Migrant Protection Protocols established in January, 2019, migrants seeking asylum were required to remain in Mexico while their applications were processed. Migrants with the arriving group have tested negative for Covid-19 prior to making the crossing as DHS has begun the first step in a phased restoration of safe and orderly processing at the Southwest Border.
