    Trump's New "Remain In Mexico" Policy Will Force Migrants To Wait In Mexico | Asylum

    Trump's New "Remain In Mexico" Policy Will Force Migrants To Wait In Mexico While Awaiting Asylum



    "The new rules will take effect as soon as Friday"

    Central Americans arriving at the US-Mexico border will have to wait in Mexico while their asylum claims are processed under a series of new immigration measures the Trump administration is preparing to implement as early as Friday, reports the Washington Post.
    Under the new rules according to DHS memos obtained by the Post, if asylum seekers cannot establish a "reasonable fear" of persecution in Mexico, they will not be allowed to enter the United States while their applications are processed, and would be turned around at the border.

    The plan, called “Remain in Mexico,” amounts to a major break with current screening procedures, which generally allow those who establish a fear of return to their home countries to avoid immediate deportation and remain in the United States until they can get a hearing with an immigration judge. Trump despises this system, which he calls “catch and release,” and has vowed to end it. -WaPo
    Thousands of Central American migrants set out for the United States in October with the expectation that those who applied for asylum would be allowed to remain in the US until their cases are processed through immigration courts.
    White House senior adviser Stephen Miller has advocated for immediate implementation of the Remain in Mexico plan, however other senior officials have reportedly expressed concern over implementing it while the United States is in "sensitive negotiations with the Mexico Government," according to two DHS officials and a White House adviser who apparently isn't a big fan of the idea.
    According to the administration’s new plan, if a migrant does not specifically fear persecution in Mexico, that is where they will stay. U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services is sending teams of asylum officers from field offices in San Francisco, Washington, and Los Angeles to the ports of entry in the San Diego area to implement the new screening procedures, according to a USCIS official.
    To cross into the United States, asylum seekers would have to meet a relatively higher bar in the screening procedure to establish that their fears of being in Mexico are enough to require immediate admission, the documents say. -WaPo
    Asylum seekers will be told: "If you are determined to have a reasonable fear of remaining in Mexico, you will be permitted to remain in the United States while you await your hearing before an immigration judge," and "If you are not determined to have a reasonable fear of remaining in Mexico, you will remain in Mexico."
    On Wednesday, DHS spokeswoman Katie Waldman issued a statement that there are no immediate plans to implement Remain in Mexico.
    "The President has made clear — every single legal option is on the table to secure our nation and to deal with the flood of illegal immigrants at our borders," the statement reads. "DHS is not implementing such a new enforcement program this week. Reporting on policies that do not exist creates uncertainty and confusion along our borders and has a negative real world impact. We will ensure — as always — that any new program or policy will comply with humanitarian obligations, uphold our national security and sovereignty, and is implemented with notice to the public and well coordinated with partners."
    Current Mexican immigration laws doe not allow those seeking asylum in another country to stay in Mexico, according to the Post's sources. There are currently 6,000 or so migrants in the Tijuana area, most of whom are camped at a baseball field along the border as they wait to be able to enter the United States. DHS estimates that several thousand more are en route as part of caravan groups.
    The possibility that thousands of U.S.-bound asylum seekers would have to wait in Mexico for months, even years, could produce a significant financial burden for the government there, especially if the migrants remain in camps and shelters on a long-term basis. -WaPo
    Between 60 and 100 asylum seekers are allowed to approach the San Ysidro port of entry each day for processing.
    Mexico, meanwhile, appears to be taking a harder approach toward the new migrant caravans crossing into the country from Central America - mostly El Salvador. Over 200 people have been detained from the latest caravan - the fourth group of migrants to make their way north.
    Meanwhile, 34 caravan migrants were arrested by Tijuana police for misdemeanor charges, including drug possession and public drunkenness.
    Por poseer droga, tomar bebidas embriagantes en la vía pública y alterar el orden, han Sido arrestados 34 integrantes de la caravana migrante, quienes fueron remitidas ante el Juez Municipal para posteriormente ser puestos a disposición del Instituto Nacional de Migración (INM). pic.twitter.com/nWxfYkdUt2

    The first group of migrants were offered to live and work in Mexico as long as they stayed in the southern states of Chipas and Oaxaca. Most of them declined.

    I wonder if Mexico's unemployment rate has been going down, like the US? They have a weak peso, so exports should be pretty good. If they succeed in cracking down on the cartels there should be a lot of work in reconstructing their tourism industry.

    Migrant caravan: Tijuana declares humanitarian crisis, asks for international help

    The mayor of Tijuana declared an international humanitarian crisis on Thursday over the arrival of more than 5,000 mostly Central American migrants traveling in a caravan.
    The migrants have streamed into the border city in the past week to seek asylum in the United States.
    During a press conference Thursday, Mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum asked international groups like the United Nations to step in help the city deal with the influx of migrants, amid a lagging response from the Mexican federal government, which he accused of neglecting their responsibilities to deal with migrant and immigration issues.
    "They have categorically omitted and not complied with their legal obligations," he said. "So we're now asking them and international humanitarian aid groups to bring in and carry out humanitarian assistance."

    For years now, large numbers of migrants have flocked to Tijuana in their quest to seek asylum at border ports of entry along Southern California.
    But the pace of arrivals stepped up this year with the organization of several migrant caravans, whose intended destination has been this border community. Since last week, more than 5,000 migrants who took off from Honduras in October arrived in Tijuana, raising tensions with local residents and straining government services.
    The municipal government estimated it has spent nearly $27,000 daily to house and care for the nearly 4,700 migrants currently in the city. They are housed mostly in the Unidad Deportiva Benito Juarez, a sport complex converted into a makeshift shelter, but well over capacity since the start of the week.
    "I will not compromise public services," Gastelum told reporters from city hall. "I will not spend Tijuanans' money, I will not bring Tijuana into debt now, in the same way we haven't done so these past two years."

    Several charter buses arrive just past midnight Nov. 20, 2018, and in the early hours Nov. 21 to the Unidad Deportiva Benito Juarez, the sports complex that city opened up as a makeshift shelter in Tijuana, Mexico. It's unclear exactly how many migrants had traveled on board. But inside, 3,000 other migrants had been arriving in Tijuana since last week. Overcrowded shelter, with minimal options on space with little other choices, many of them settled into the cold and damp field of the outdoor baseball stadium. (Photo: Nick Oza/The Republic)

    The Baja California state government also asked the federal government to step up its assistance. State officials have allocated resources, and opened up shelter space in the nearby city of Mexicali, 90 miles away. That city, and state capital, is the last stop and staging ground for the waves of migrants seeking to reach Tijuana.

    The state government estimates there are at least 1,500 migrants currently in Mexicali, with a second caravan making its way to the city. But an increasing number are opting to stay there, rather than face additional hardships in Tijuana.

    U.S. Customs and Border Protection temporarily shut down the San Ysidro port of entry in San Diego-Tijuana, to install additional fortifications for the migrant caravan in Tijuana, Baja California, Mexico, on Nov. 19, 2018. The lanes reopened after about three hours. (Photo: Nick Oza, for USA TODAY)

    Gastelum has drawn criticism, as well as support, in recent days over his approach to the migrant caravan. Last week, he was spotted wearing a red hat that reads "Make Tijuana Great Again," in reference to President Donald Trump's election slogan.
    That coupled with widespread coverage of an anti-immigrant march in Tijuana and anti-immigrant sentiment flooding social media have garnered attention since the caravan's arrival in Mexico.
    Hundreds more migrants arrived to the already-crowded shelter in Tijuana late Tuesday night. The shelter is over-capacity. Nick Oza, The Republic | azcentral.com

    Look for a federal judge to take his usual corporate bribe and write a law saying this is illegal.
