WaPo Reported Mexico/US Reached ‘Remain in Mexico’ Asylum Deal Ending ‘Catch & Release’, But Mexico Disputes The Deal…Here Is What We Know

By: Brian Evans

Early on Saturday, the Washington Post reported that…

The Trump administration has won the support of Mexico’s incoming government for a plan to remake U.S. border policy by requiring asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their claims move through U.S. courts, according to Mexican officials and senior members of President-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s transition team.

The Washington Post

The Washington Post went on to say that President Trump briefly described the arrangement via twitter. However, in the tweets that the Post cites, he didn’t really mention any deal made, regardless of what they claimed. He wrote…

Furthermore, although the Washington Post used these tweets to claim that “President Trump briefly described the arrangement in a pair of tweets Saturday evening,” he didn’t really mention any such deal, but instead gave a stern warning to Mexico, that should they abuse the United States any more regarding illegal immigration, the United States would consequently SHUT DOWN THE BORDER, which would severely hurt Mexico’s commerce with North America, and stop the migrants from coming across the border anyways.

Still the Washington Post reported that the Trump Administration cut a deal with the Mexican incoming Obrador Administration that would require all asylum seekers from south of the United States border to wait in Mexico while their asylum claims go through court, which can take up to 5 years.

Now, in the late evening hours of Saturday, the Mexican government is denying any “agreement of any sort”. According to the Associated Press, they said that the Obrador Administration in Mexico was denying the Washington Posts claims, and the incoming Interior Minister Olga Sanchez said…

“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, and she refused to comment as to why the Washington Post quoted Sanchez as saying…

“For now, we have agreed to this policy of Remain in Mexico.”

According to Stephanie Lautert, who is the Director of the Mexico Security Initiative at the University of Texas in Austin, told the Associated Press that the ‘Remain in Mexico’ plan being pushed by the Trump Administration is a strategy to remove the migrants ability to live and work in the United States, while their cases are processed. As a result, they believe that the…

” asylum seekers will not want to live in (Mexico) for months/years and won’t come.”

In the meantime, President Trump has been battling with Congress to get funding for a border wall, Democrats who are trying to resist every initiative he has, and the Judiciary, who has employed judicial activism as a tool to derail President Trump’s immigration agenda, as well as a great many of his other agenda items as well. To date, it is not ultimately clear, as to where Mexico stands in regards to the immigration issue, or what our two countries have agreed upon regarding immigration, but President Trump has made it crystal clear that he will do whatever it takes to protect not only the interests of the United States of America, but especially the safety, security, and well-being of ‘We the People’ of these United States.
