    Mexico 'disagrees' with US returning asylum seekers

    Mexico 'disagrees' with US returning asylum seekers

    Mexico City (AFP)
    Mexico said Friday it "disagrees" with the United States's new policy of returning asylum seekers back across the border while their cases are processed, but will accept them for "humanitarian" reasons.

    Speaking as the US prepared to send the first asylum seekers back across the border, foreign ministry spokesman Roberto Velasco said Mexico had not contributed to President Donald Trump's "Remain in Mexico" policy.



    "The Mexican government disagrees with the unilateral measure implemented by the United States government. However... we reiterate our commitment to migrants and human rights," Velasco told a news conference.

    He said the US embassy in Mexico had informed local authorities the policy would begin within hours with the return of 20 Central American asylum seekers at the San Ysidro border crossing between San Diego, California and the Mexican city of Tijuana.

    The US will continue presenting 20 people a day at that crossing, and eventually extend the policy to other points along the 3,145-kilometer (2,000-mile) border, he said.

    Announced in December, the policy is meant to stop what Trump calls "catch and release" -- allowing migrants who cross the border without papers and claim asylum to leave detention and remain in the United States while their cases are processed.


    The US Department of Homeland Security says at least 80 percent of asylum claims are without merit -- mostly by poor refugees from violence-wracked Honduras, Guatemala and El Salvador.


    Many of them never show up for their court hearings, department officials say.


    The system is badly backlogged, with 800,000 asylum requests currently pending.


    But the "Remain in Mexico" plan has been sharply criticized by opponents on both sides of the border.


    Migrants have been tortured, raped and killed in Mexico's often violent border regions, and the new policy violates their right to seek asylum in the US, activists say.


    The new policy "is not only unlawful but could lead to dire and catastrophic consequences for those who are seeking to access the asylum process in the United States, a right which is enshrined in both domestic and international law," Katie Shepherd, a lawyer at the American Immigration Council, told AFP.


    Mexico said it would give returnees humanitarian visas that would allow them to remain in the country temporarily while they await their court dates in the US.

    Authorities in Tijuana said they would initially be housed in a government-run shelter.

    Mexico will not accept unaccompanied minors, people with health problems or those who have appealed a rejected asylum claim, said Velasco.


    Trump announced a deal Friday to reopen the US government after a record five-week shutdown triggered by his fight with Congress over funding for a border wall, which he says is the only way to stop illegal immigration.


    The deal with opposition Democrats does not include funding for the wall.

    USA "disagrees" with Mexico for opening their gates WIDE OPEN on their southern border and SHUTTLING them directly to our doorstep shirking your responsibilities to your own people and these illegal migrants.

    Stop dumping your problems in our laps and solve them yourselves. What a disgraceful country and people who REFUSE to solve their problems and fight for their rights on their soil. These are not the people we want coming illegally into our country.

    We are a nation of laws. Go home, apply to come legally and wait your damn turn like 2 billion people on the planet who "dream" of coming here.

    They come here, demand rights, form organizations, mouth off in our streets...GO HOME AND MOUTH OFF IN YOUR COUNTRY!

    KEEP THEM ALL OUT!

    SEND BACK 20,000 A DAY!

    THEY HAVE BEEN DUMPING OVER 50,000 A MONTH OVER OUR BORDER FOR DECADES!
