U.S. Expands Roundup Of Spanish-Speaking Asylum Seekers To Include Cubans

Mexican and U.S. officials said Friday the United States is more than doubling the number of asylum seekers it returns to Mexico.

It's also adding groups like Cubans to its dragnet, as it rapidly expands a policy to make migrants wait out claims south of the border.

The policy is known as the Migrant Protection Protocols, or MPP.

According to Reuters, it's being applied to all Spanish-speaking asylum seekers, other than Mexicans, at three U.S.-Mexico border crossings.
