    Incoming Mexican government disputes report of tentative deal with US on asylum-seekers

    By Adam Shaw | Fox News



    Report: US-Mexico reach deal on asylum overhaul

    The Washington Post reports that the Trump administration has cut a deal with the incoming Mexican government potentially overhauling long-standing asylum rules; Bryan Llenas reports from West Palm Beach, Florida.



    Reports on Saturday said the Trump administration had struck a tentative deal with Mexico’s incoming government to require all asylum-seekers from south of the border to wait in Mexico while their asylum claims go through court.
    But by early evening, the picture grew more complex, as the incoming Mexican government said there was "no agreement of any sort."

    The Washington Post
    , citing Mexican officials and senior members of president-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s transition team, reported early Saturday that the Remain in Mexico plan would require asylum applicants to stay in Mexico, therefore ending the “catch-and-release” practice whereby those seeking asylum are allowed to stay in the U.S. while their claims are being processed. This is one of several options the Trump administration has been pursuing in negotiations for months.


    Implementation of such a policy would mark a significant victory for President Trump, whose tough immigration stance -- including his promises to end catch-and-release and build a wall -- has formed a central part of his political platform both before and after his election.


    The Wall Street Journal,
    in its own report on the agreement, said it strives to control how many migrants are allowed to stay on the American side of the border during the asylum process.


    The White House did not comment on the reported deal on Saturday. “President Trump has developed a strong relationship with the incoming Obrador Administration, and we look forward to working with them on a wide range of issues,” Deputy Press Secretary Hogan Gidley told Fox News.


    Trump did turn to Twitter on Saturday evening to discuss the migrant matter, vowing that those at the U.S.-Mexico border wouldn't be permitted into America "until their claims are individually approved in court."

    Donald J. Trump

    @realDonaldTrump

    Migrants at the Southern Border will not be allowed into the United States until their claims are individually approved in court. We only will allow those who come into our Country legally. Other than that our very strong policy is Catch and Detain. No “Releasing” into the U.S...

    ....All will stay in Mexico. If for any reason it becomes necessary, we will CLOSE our Southern Border. There is no way that the United States will, after decades of abuse, put up with this costly and dangerous situation anymore!

    "We only will allow those who come into our Country legally. Other than that our very strong policy is Catch and Detain. No “Releasing” into the U.S," he tweeted. "All will stay in Mexico. If for any reason it becomes necessary, we will CLOSE our Southern Border. There is no way that the United States will, after decades of abuse, put up with this costly and dangerous situation anymore!"

    But according to The Associated Press, the new Mexican leadership was telling a somewhat different story.


    "There is no agreement of any sort between the incoming Mexican government and the U.S. government," future Interior Minister Olga Sanchez said in a statement. That ran contrary to The Post's account of the agreement with the incoming administration of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador, who takes office Dec. 1.


    The Post had also quoted Sanchez as saying, "For now, we have agreed to this policy of Remain in Mexico."

    Sanchez, in her statement to AP, did not explain why The Post had quoted her affirming the existence of an agreement.

    The statement shared with AP said the future government's principal concern related to the migrants is their well-being while in Mexico.


    Trump has been battling with international pressure, a tight control of the Senate, and significant judicial pushback over a number of his immigration policies.


    JUDGE BARS US FROM ENFORCING TRUMP ADMINISTRATION'S ASYLUM BAN


    This week a federal judge in San Francisco barred the administration from refusing asylum to those who cross the southern border illegally, after the White House said that anyone crossing illegally would be declared ineligible for asylum.


    The deal appeared to be coming at a time when Trump has set his sights on the latest migrant caravan to travel through Honduras and Guatemala toward the U.S. southern border. He has expressed determination to stop the caravan from reaching the U.S., deploying troops to the border and warning of consequences should countries assist the caravan in its journey.

    It was not clear at press time what the policy implications of this latest disagreement on an asylum-seeker deal might be.

    Incoming Mexico gov’t: No deal to host US asylum-seekers

    By AMY GUTHRIE 8 minutes ago



    MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s incoming government denied a report Saturday that it plans to allow asylum-seekers to wait in the country while their claims move through U.S. immigration courts, one of several options the Trump administration has been pursuing in negotiations for months.

    The deal was seen as a way to dissuade thousands of Central American migrants from seeking asylum in the U.S. In effect, Mexican border towns are already acting as waiting rooms for migrants hoping to start new lives in the U.S. due to bottlenecks at the border.


    “There is no agreement of any sort between the incoming Mexican government and the U.S. government,” future Interior Minister Olga Sanchez said in a statement.


    Hours earlier, The Washington Post quoted her as saying that the incoming administration of Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador had agreed to allow migrants to stay in Mexico as a “short-term solution” while the U.S. considered their applications for asylum. Lopez Obrador will take office on Dec. 1.


    The statement shared with The Associated Press said the future government’s principal concern related to the migrants is their well-being while in Mexico.


    The Washington Post reported Saturday that the administration of U.S. President Donald Trump has won support from the Mexican president-elect’s team for a plan dubbed “Remain in Mexico.”


    The newspaper also quoted Sanchez as saying: “For now, we have agreed to this policy of Remain in Mexico.”


    Sanchez did not explain in the statement why The Washington Post had quoted her as saying there had been agreement.


    White House spokesman Hogan Gidley said, “President Trump has developed a strong relationship with the incoming (Lopez) Obrador Administration, and we look forward to working with them on a wide range of issues.”


    Stephanie Leutert, director of the Mexico Security Initiative at the University of Texas at Austin, described the Remain in Mexico plan as a strategy to take away the ability of migrants to live and work in the U.S. while cases are processed. “The hope is that asylum seekers will not want to live in (Mexico) for months/years and won’t come,” Leutert said via Twitter.


    U.S. officials have said for months that they were working with Mexico to find solutions for what they have called a border crisis. One variation, called “Safe Third,” would have denied asylum claims on the grounds that asylum seekers had found haven in Mexico. President Enrique Pena Nieto offered thousands of Central Americans asylum on Oct. 26 if they agreed to remain in southern Mexico. Close to 3,000 migrants took Mexico up on the offer.


    Sanchez said Saturday that the next government does not plan for Mexico to become a “third safe country.”


    Approximately 5,000 Central American migrants have arrived in recent days to Tijuana, just south of California, after making their way through Mexico via caravan. But agents at the San Diego port of entry process fewer than 100 claims per day.


    Tijuana Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum on Friday declared a humanitarian crisis in his border city of 1.6 million, which he says is struggling to accommodate the influx. Most of the migrants are camped inside a sports complex, where they face long wait times for food and bathrooms. Hundreds of Tijuana residents have protested their arrival, complaining that recent caravans forced their way into Mexico from Guatemala.


    Trump threatened Thursday to shut down the border crossing entirely if his administration determines that Mexico has lost “control” of the situation in Tijuana.


    Julieta Vences, a congresswoman with Lopez Obrador’s Morena party who is also president of Mexico’s congressional migrant affairs commission, told the AP that incoming Foreign Minister Marcelo Ebrard has been discussing with U.S. officials how to handle a deluge of asylum claims at the border.


    “They’re going to have to open the borders (for the migrants) to put in the request,” Vences said. “They will also give us dates, on what terms they will receive the (asylum) requests and in the case that they are not beneficiaries of this status, they will have to return here,” Vences said.


    She spoke to the AP after a visit to the crowded sports complex in Tijuana.


    Local churches and charities have been feeding the migrants, with assistance from state and federal agencies. They have also distributed thousands of blankets, thin mattresses and personal hygiene kits.


    Meanwhile, the government of the state of Baja California has identified 7,000 jobs for which migrants could possibly earn income while they await hearings in the U.S.


    Trump took to Twitter again Saturday to reiterate that he plans to do away with the U.S. catch-and-release system, which allows asylum seekers to work and study sometimes for years while their cases are pending.


    “Migrants at the Southern Border will not be allowed into the United States until their claims are individually approved in court,” Trump wrote. “We only will allow those who come into our Country legally. Other than that our very strong policy is Catch and Detain. No ‘Releasing’ into the U.S...”

    That explains why the White House had no comment. No top dog has approved it yet. Well, we certainly don't need their agreement to keep them out of our country. Back to the Troops and Just Say No Entry Wait in Mexico or .... Wherever.

    Trump confirms refugee deal with Mexico

    024 Nov 2018 Washington (AFP) – President Donald Trump on Saturday announced migrants seeking asylum in the United States via its southern border would need to wait in Mexico while their claims are processed, appearing to confirm a report regarding a new bilateral deal.


    “Migrants at the Southern Border will not be allowed into the United States until their claims are individually approved in court,” he tweeted. “All will stay in Mexico.”



    The tweets came after The Washington Post reported the US had reached a deal with Mexico’s incoming government that would represent a major overhaul of border policy.

    Looks like the illegal invaders have lost favor with both the United States and Mexico. Rats are trapped.
