First visit to the US-Mexico border by Parliament's Subcommittee on Human Rights

MEPs call on the US administration to respect international law and US federal law on protecting asylum seekers, who must not, by any means, be criminalised.

The delegation visited El Paso (Texas, USA), Ciudad Juarez (Chihuahua, Mexico) and Washington D.C. from 24 to 28 February to assess the human rights situation of migrants and refugees at the US-Mexico border. This was a follow up to the European Parliament's urgency resolution adopted on 18 July 2019.
