You better read what is happening in Mexico on CA border. Looks like the Mexicans there will be against the deal.

I am fully aware of what is happening in Tijuana.  I believe this deal is still being worked out.  It is a step in the right direction and as the articles say, there is a chance that these migrants might want to find employment while waiting and give up banking on asylum.

 

Of course a good many are coming here for the big bucks they plan to make.  If they were indeed fleeing from persecution they would have already accepted Mexico's offer of residency and job permits.

The Mexican government has reached a deal with the Trump administration that would require asylum seekers at the Southern border to wait in Mexico while their claims are processed in U.S. courts, the Washington Post reported Saturday.

 

The Post, which quoted Mexican officials and senior members of President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s transition team, reported the agreement would break with long-standing asylum rules and place a "formidable new barrier" for migrants from Central America attempting to reach the United States.

 

The Post said the plan was dubbed "Remain in Mexico."

 

The Post reported that asylum applicants at the border would have to remain in Mexico while their cases were processed through U.S. courts.
