    Mexico agrees to Trump policy forcing migrants to wait in Mexico as asylum requests processed: report

    Mexico’s incoming administration has agreed to support a new policy from the Trump White House that would require migrants seeking asylum to remain in Mexico as their requests are processed, The Washington Post reported Saturday.

    Mexican officials and senior members of president-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s transition team told The Post that the incoming administration accepted the plan, called “Remain in Mexico,” in a sharp change to long-standing asylum rules that allowed migrants to file asylum claims after entering the U.S. either legally or illegally.

    “For now, we have agreed to this policy of Remain in Mexico,” Olga Sánchez Cordero, Mexico’s incoming interior minister and the top domestic policy official for the president-elect, told The Post, calling it a “short-term solution.”

    “The medium- and long-term solution is that people don’t migrate,” Sánchez Cordero added. “Mexico has open arms and everything, but imagine, one caravan after another after another, that would also be a problem for us.”

    Neither the White House or the Department of Homeland Security immediately responded to requests for comment from The Hill.

    While U.S. officials told The Post they are wary the deal could fall apart, they view it as a breakthrough in negotiations with Mexico that they believe could deter further migration to the southern border.

    Human rights advocates have voiced their disapproval of President Trump's hardline immigration policies, including the Remain in Mexico plan. They say leaving migrants in Mexican border towns, which have seen intense violence as drug cartels fight each other for smuggling routes into the U.S., are likely to endanger people.

    “We have not seen a specific proposal, but any policy that would leave individuals stranded in Mexico would inevitably put people in danger,” Lee Gelernt, an ACLU attorney whose team has successfully sued the Trump administration over its immigration initiatives, told The Post.

    “The Administration ought to concentrate on providing a fair and lawful asylum process in the U.S. rather than inventing more and more ways to try to short-circuit it,” he added.

    News of the policy comes days after a federal judge prevented the Trump administration from blocking asylum claims from migrants who do not enter the U.S. legally.

    “Whatever the scope of the President’s authority, he may not rewrite the immigration laws to impose a condition that Congress has expressly forbidden,” U.S. District Judge Jon Tigar wrote in California.

    “Asylum seekers will be put at increased risk of violence and other harms at the border, and many will be deprived of meritorious asylum claims,” he added. “The government offers nothing in support of the new rule that outweighs the need to avoid these harms.”

    The president has doubled down on his hardline stance on immigration and asylum as a group of thousands of Central American migrants make their way to the southern border, many seeking to claim asylum.

    He has argued that the caravan puts the U.S. at risk because some documented gang members are in the group, going as far as sending thousands of troops to defend the border, something many Democrats and some Republican lawmakers have called unnecessary.

    “Our military is being mobilized at the Southern Border. Many more troops coming. We will NOT let these Caravans, which are also made up of some very bad thugs and gang members, into the U.S. Our Border is sacred, must come in legally. TURN AROUND!” Trump tweeted last month.

    The asylum deal reportedly took shape last week following a meeting between Mexico's incoming foreign minister and U.S. officials including Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

    Nielsen has long faced criticism from Trump for supposedly being too soft on immigration and has been fighting to keep her job since earlier this month amid reports that Trump has instructed his aides that he plans to replace her.

    The Mexicans see the sleeping giant stirring, so they are becoming alarmed. "Go back to sleep. Nothing to worry about."

    Yes, that's probably true, patbrunz. All those troops on the border with authorization to use lethal force is likely making the Mexicans a little nervous. That's good! They should be nervous. They need to understand that tens and tens of millions of Americans including our President are furious with Mexico over their own illegal immigration into the US for decades as well as allowing their country to be a conduit of passage for illegal immigration into the US from other countries. It all has to stop and stop now.

    Hopefully Mexico builds their WALL on their southern border and keeps them out!

    They will stop giving them the passes and maybe come up with another ID system.

    We do not want to pay for them, we do not want them here either.

    Mexico needs to meet with El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras and solve their problems once and for all!

    Send in NATO troops to round up those gangs and put them in prisons!

    That would relieve a lot of their fears and get them on the road to rebuilding and prosperity.

    I'm liking this Troops on the Border and Just Say No Entry Wait in Mexico plan. It shows promise and is worth every cent it costs.

    Trump was going to give mexico $20 MILLION to deport Central Americans before they reached the U.S.

    Trump Plans to Pay Mexico $20 Million to Deport Illegal Aliens There

    So now it looks like he will give Mexico the $20 million to take care of the asylum seekers until they get to enter the U.S.
    NO AMNESTY

    Don't reward the criminal actions of millions of illegal aliens by giving them citizenship.

    I figured we’d end up footing the bill AGAIN.

    They have cell phones. Text them the case number, date and time. Hear the case via Skype.

    Do not make us pay to transport them here to Judge, deny the case, then pay to send them home!

    We do not fly people here from overseas to see Judge, deny them, then fly them back! They apply at home and are vetted for asylum. They are no different.

    Put clause Mexico has right to deport them if they refuse to work for their keep. Deport if they are troublemakers or crimnals. Mexico offered them jobs. They can work, pay for their food, medical and housing!

    If they refuse work...no free food...go home!

    No US taxpayer funded lawyers!

    I would hold that thought until there's some evidence, announcement or report that we are in fact paying them money. I don't think we are or have even offered to do that. It would have leaked by now.
