Deal Reached with Mexico Will Make Asylum Seekers Wait Outside of US Border by Cristina Laila – The Gateway Pundit

The Trump administration has reached a deal with Mexico which will make asylum seekers wait in Mexico while their cases are processed.

No formal deal has been signed which is making US officials anxious the deal could fall apart.

This move by the Trump administration is the latest to end Obama’s dangerous ‘catch and release’ that allowed illegal aliens to wait in the US while lawyers worked on their immigration cases.

Under Obama’s ‘catch and release’ policy, illegal aliens would often just disappear into the US population and ignore orders to appear in court regarding their immigration status.

According to outlines of the plan, known as Remain in Mexico, asylum applicants at the border will have to stay in Mexico while their cases are processed, potentially ending the system Trump decries as “catch and release” that has until now generally allowed those seeking refuge to wait on safer U.S. soil.

“For now, we have agreed to this policy of Remain in Mexico,” said Olga Sánchez Cordero, Mexico’s incoming interior minister, the top domestic policy official for López Obrador, who takes office Dec. 1. In an interview with The Washington Post, she called it a “short-term solution.”

President Trump has vowed to keep out the migrant caravan full of mostly military-aged males, many of which have criminal histories.

But the President is battling globalist Obama judges in the ninth circuit court.
