Reminders for Immigrants Who Entered the U.S. after waiting in Mexico under the Migrant Protection Protocols

May 10th, 2021

If you came to the United States after waiting in Mexico under the U.S. Government's Migrant Protection Protocols (MPP), it is important to remember the following:

1. If you haven't received notice about your immigration case, and the U.S. hasn't informed you that you may remain in the country permanently, you do not yet have lawful status.
2. You must notify the immigration court and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) of any change to your address withing five days of the change. You may ask the court and DHS to transfer your case to another city or state but your request is not guaranteed to be granted even if you have moved to another state.
3. You must attend your immigration court hearings. You may access information about your case, including your next scheduled hearing, via phone at 1-800-898-7180 and EOIR's website.
4. You must submit applications on time. For example, you must submit an asylum application to the immigration court within one year of entering the U.S.
