Migrants in Mexico cling to American dream despite Trump’s asylum stance

Central Americans in limbo at Mexico’s border city of Tijuana told Reuters they are still hoping to cross into the United States despite President Trump saying migrants at the U.S.-Mexico border would stay in Mexico until their asylum claims were individually approved in U.S. courts. Olga Sanchez Cordero, the top domestic policy official for Mexican president-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador has said the incoming government was in talks with the United States on the migrant situation. Mexico’s incoming interior minister has denied any agreement had been made, despite Trump’s tweet. The plan foresees migrants staying in Mexico while their asylum claims in the United States are being processed, potentially ending a system Trump decries as “catch and release” that has until now often allowed those seeking refuge to wait on safer U.S. soil.
