Mexico’s incoming foreign minister has confirmed that although discussions with the Trump’s administration on how to deal with the influx of migrants is taking place, contrary to reports there is no deal.
Marcelo Ebrard has denied reaching any consensus which would see asylum seekers waiting in Mexico while their claims were processed in U.S. courts.
His statement contradicts U.S. President Donald Trump’s latest tweet.
He said migrants would not be allowed entry until their claims were approved.
“Migrants at the Southern Border will not be allowed into the United States until their claims are individually approved in court,” Mr. Trump wrote, adding: “No ‘releasing’ into the US. All will stay in Mexico.”
The President also tweeted, “Would be very SMART if Mexico would stop the Caravans long before they get to our Southern Border, or if originating countries would not let them form (it is a way they get certain people out of their country and dump in the U.S. No longer). Dems created this problem. No crossings!”
