    By Ted Hesson and Laura Gottesdiener MONTERREY, Mexico (Reuters) - The United States abruptly canceled plans on Monday to bring asylum seekers into Texas at two ports of entry, dashing the hopes of hundreds who have been waiting for months in Mexico under a Trump-era policy President Joe Biden promised to unwind. The U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) said in a statement that "given current operational considerations," it could no longer say when it would begin bringing in migrants through ports in Brownsville and El Paso, Texas. The department said last week it would start accepting asylum seekers with active cases at those locations on Monday and Friday, respectively. Texas is recovering from a winter storm that knocked out power and water services across the state. A DHS spokeswoman did not give a specific reason for the delay, but said the agency would begin to use those locations once...
    Immigrants will now be allowed to enter the United States while waiting for their applications to be processed in immigration courts. The effort will start slowly, with a limited number of people admitted Friday at the San Ysidro, California, port of entry. It will expand to two other ports of entry in Texas, including one near a migrant camp in Matamoros, Mexico, in the next week, according to a spokeswoman for the US Department of Homeland Security. The new president Joe Biden announced the resumption as of this Friday of the attention in the United States of the asylum seekers returned to Mexico under the MPP, also known as “Remain in Mexico” (Remain in Mexico), promoted by his predecessor, Donald Trump. The move is part of a plan by the current president’s administration, Joe Biden, to end the program, an effort complicated by the current coronavirus pandemic and...
    McAllen, Texas (CNN)The respite center for migrants in McAllen, Texas, used to be a nightclub. Now it's a shelter run by Catholic Charities. Where there used to be rows of liquor, there's now toiletries and diapers. Small children play on the floor. Colorful drawings hang from the blacked-out windows. This center has become a haven of activity in recent weeks, as more and more families have crossed the Rio Grande River from Mexico seeking asylum in the United States. U.S Customs and Border Protection officials process the migrants and give them a court date, then they drop them off at a bus station in downtown McAllen, just across the street from the respite center. While the numbers are nowhere near the level of families crossing a couple of years ago, the numbers have been steadily increasing since April. The migrants are driven by the Covid-19 pandemic, the devastation left by...
    SAN DIEGO (CBSDFW.COM/AP) — Tens of thousands of asylum-seekers waiting in Mexico, some near the Texas border, for their next immigration court hearings may soon be allowed into the United States while their cases proceed. The Biden administration detailed the plans in a February 12 announcement. The first of an estimated 25,000 asylum-seekers in Mexico with active cases will be allowed in the United States on Feb. 19, authorities said. They plan to start slowly with two border crossings each processing up to 300 people a day and a third crossing taking fewer.

    A mother-of-three who worked at a hospital treating COVID-19 patients has vanished after being kidnapped from her home in the middle of the night by armed men in western Mexico. The family of Glorimar López, 26, have begged for her captors to release the nurse, who was abducted from her home in the municipality of Mazatlán at 3am on October 29. López was forced out of her home by two armed men, and has not been seen since, according to the Sinaloa state attorney general's office unit that specializes in kidnappings.  López works in the coronavirus unit of a government-run hospital in Mazatlán, and in September was honored by her supervisors for her outstanding work during the pandemic.  Authorities and the family have not provided a motive for López's kidnapping, and it is unknown if a cartel or local gang is involved.  Her father, Gerardo López, posted a heartfelt message on Facebook for...
    The loud chatter in the background most likely reminded Adrián LeBaron of his earlier days as a parent while raising his 12 children with his wife, Shalom LeBaron, at his home in Mexico. His grandchildren, Tristan Miller, 9, Amaryllis Miller, 6, and Zack Miller, 4, were simply running around at the house. Laughing. Simply doing what young kids do. But what he could never have imagined was that he'd be raising three of his 99 grandchildren alone while hammering out the final details of a memorial service for his daughter and four of her children.  Rhonita Miller, 30, one of his six daughters, and her four children - eight-month-old twins Tiana and Titus, Howard Jr., 12, and Krystal, 10 - were among nine people from the Mormon family brutally assassinated by a Mexican cartel La Linea who opened fire on their convoy of three vehicles exactly a year ago in Bavispe,...
