A US judge has been told by a number of asylum seekers who are made to wait in Mexico during their asylum case hearings that they are afraid of returning to Mexico. Seven asylum cases were heard in San Diego on Tuesday. These asylum seekers were among the first of their kinds affected by Trump's major policy shift launched in January. They had earlier appeared before a US immigration court three days before advocacy groups made a case for the enforcement to be stopped before a federal judge in San Francisco. Access to any interview held with US officials by the asylum seekers about the genuineness of the fears of returning to Mexico has been requested by attorney Robyn Barnard - representing two Honduran men. A U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) attorney said nothing against the request but wants other agencies within the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) to be responsible.
