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

ㅤ"Mexican officials and senior members of President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s transition team told The Washington 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.
ㅤ’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.’
ㅤ’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.’"
