Obrador and his followers are exact copies of Trumpism, down to the last detail. He hates the poor and non-Mexicans, exists only for the wealthiest oligarchs and wouldn't offer someone a helping hand outside his ruling elite if his life depended on it.

 

WaPo seems to have jumped the shark on this one. Journalists do get bad intel sometimes. But at least they try to get intel, instead of just making it up like Fox News does.

The deal did seem odd. Why would Mexico agree to something without getting something in return?  And since no article mentioned what that benefit to Mexico might be....

Incoming Mexican government denies deal to hold asylum seekers in Mexico

 

After initial reports that a deal was in the works to hold asylum seekers in Mexico, the incoming government denied such an agreement had been struck.

 

WASHINGTON — American and Mexican officials appeared at odds Saturday over the possibility of a deal that could prevent asylum seekers from reaching the United States.

 

Two Trump administration officials told NBC News that the deal with Mexico's recently elected government would force asylum seekers to remain in Mexico while U.S. courts process their claims. The officials added that operational and legal details are being worked out, and the deal is still at least few weeks away from going into effect.

 
 But on Saturday afternoon, Jesus Ramirez Cuevas, a spokesman for recently elected Mexican President Andrés Manuel López, denied to NBC News any such agreement and insisted talks of such a deal were premature.
 
 
Mexico agrees to hold asylum seekers at border

 

Incoming Mexican President Andrés Manuel López Obrador will work with the Trump administration to keep asylum seekers out of the U.S. while their applications are pending in court, according to a Mexican official with knowledge of the talks.

 

The tentative agreement is a departure from current U.S. procedure, which allows those seeking asylum to remain in the U.S. until their case is reviewed by an immigration judge. U.S. and Mexican officials have been secretly negotiating for the past two months, the official said, and are nearing a final deal.

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

 

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., a process that can take years. 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.
