Report: Possible U.S-Mexico Agreement To Keep Asylum Seekers In Mexico…

The Washington Times is reporting on a possible agreement between U.S. and Mexico officials to keep all Central American asylum seekers outside the U.S. during the process to evaluate their asylum claims.

The important backdrop here is the new Mexican President, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), taking office on December 1st.  If the reporting is correct, there may be an agreement in the works between President Trump’s administration and AMLO’s team.

Reading between the lines, the mutually beneficial structure of such an agreement is likely based within prior economic (trade) discussions. [CTH sees Jared Kushner’s diplomatic fingerprints at work]  Friends with benefits….

(Via Washington Times) Immigrants seeking asylum in the United States by entering through Mexico could be required to wait south of the border while U.S. courts assess their cases, a member of the incoming Mexican government said in an interview published Saturday.

Andrés Manuel López Obrador, Mexico’s president-elect, plans to implement a policy known as “Remain in Mexico” after taking office next month, his top domestic policy official told The Washington Post.

“For now, we have agreed to this policy of Remain in Mexico,” said Olga Sánchez Cordero, Mexico’s incoming interior minister, The Post reported.

Called a “short-term solution” by Ms. Sánchez Cordero, the pending policy change is expected to earn praise north of the border from President Trump, who has vowed to reform federal immigration policies said launching his 2016 campaign.  (read more)

    Guess what?

      We know that, the AAG should “get his people in gear” to start enforcing what we already have on the books.
      If they wish to go down like Sally Yates (refusing to comply with a lawful directive), than fire them like Sally Yates.

        “We know that…”

        Actually someone on the first page was asking so I looked up the actual law.

        And yes, President Trump should issue a directive to have anyone in the USA aiding and abetting this invasion ARRESTED. Also since women and children have gone ‘missing’ the clause

        “…In addition, significant enhanced penalties are provided for in violations of 8 U.S.C. § 1324(a)(1) involving serious bodily injury or placing life in jeopardy….”

        Should kick in.

        It is about time to flip the narrative to the people organizing this are PLACING WOMEN AND CHILDREN AT RISK!!!

        if we had an honest media those would be some of the headlines.

          Great research G. Combs! Thank you. Now if we just had someone to enforce those laws, paging Whittaker.

          Maybe someone should forward it to him, perhaps he is unaware? So far I’ve not seen much to differentiate him from Sessions. Jury’s still out tho.

          So many crimes, so little time.

      It’s been reported that 100 or so women and children have gone “missing” on the trek to Tijuana. If true, we all know what that means. The organizers of this International Charade need to be held criminally responsible for human trafficking, and specifically those missing.

        I sure hope that President Trump is using his FISA surveillance authority to monitor these S.O.B.s so he can bring the whole lot into court and convict them after stripping them of assets via his E.O.

        Bring the whole darn bunch crashing down.

      Thanks for citing the relevant CFR reference. I do this very frequently in my position as a regulatory compliance analyst. In my world this would be “end of story” for my clients – that’s the reg, its applicable – now, how do we bring ourselves into compliance? Apparently, on a public, national level this isn’t how it works. It would be similar to my clients saying… well yes but its not fair; the local/state/federal regulations are biased, prejudiced and racist – we’re going to litigate.


  2. jeans2nd says:

    What’s the catch? What happened to merit-based immigration? Do the “refuge/asylum seekers” count toward the lowered maximum total of asylum seekers admitted, to the U.S., or is the total number increased now with all these new additions?

    There is a catch. There is always a catch. Will wait for more info before forming an opinion. Has the 9th Circus weighed in on this yet?
    Please pardon the cynicism.

    Is the confusion here created by TWT getting things screwed up? I don’t see how this story can be legit. These people are not OUR problem. They belong to Mexico now. The never should have been allowed to get as far as they have allowed to get! No . No. No. No treaty! We owe them nothing. I believe PDJT has made it very clear we are not going to do anything like what this article is suggesting. Never. We have No responsability here at all! They will not be given such unearned advantages and we don’t ask Mexico to hold them for us unless we are going completely against what has been claimed we will be doing which was to be nothing but stopping this! I am frightened to see Kushner’s name attached. We don’t own anyone anything. Sounds like what the U.N. thinks we should be doing. No way.

      this is exactly what the UN wanted to happen, imo.

      push it to its limits…and Tijuana has reached those limits w/ this avalanche of “migrants”..

      in fact, the Mayor down there has now declared the whole mess a humanitarian crisis and has appealed to the UN…and “other” internat’l aid groups…for help.

      b/c the Mex govt has done nothing to help him there.

      so…now they’re all “stranded” in a vicious no man’s land (as the UN will try to put it) sick with diseases and no shelter or toilets.

      send lawyers guns & money.


    • Will Hunt says:

      Thinking this through in light of recent trends, Trump, of course, will try to prevent them based on current legal requirements. He will be sued by multiple parties to prevent him from enforcing the law. A stay will be granted and the illegals will be allowed in.

    If they were really fleeing violence in their countries, why won’t they accept refuge in Mexico? They just want to bleed us dry, like the rest of the illegals and anchor babies in this country. Enough.

    My big concern? While we are focused on the caravan, they are pouring over border in more remote parts.


  8. Truthfilter says:

    They are coming here for an easy ride. Even if Mexico has jobs to offer, I doubt that these migrants will get the free healthcare, food stamps, or housing aid that America will give them.

    As of 2016, more than 50% of illegals in the U.S. received welfare benefits. Here is just one example: My daughter is a human resource manager at a janatorial company who hires lots of illegals (who present stolen, fake, and recycled documentation). They make at least $10/hour but cant work more than 20 hours per week because they don’t want to lose their food stamps. The company has to fill out paperwork on a monthly basis to verify that each employee on welfare hasn’t worked beyond the maximum hours allowed.

    These folks are running a real scam on America. Cut the freebies, tax all money transfers and a lot of these people will turn around while those who are here will self deport.
