The Trump administration strikes a tentative agreement regarding asylum seekers with Mexico’s president-elect.
According to reports on Saturday, President Trump and Mexico’s incoming government have reached a deal which will require asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their claims are considered by U.S. courts.
The agreement would keep asylum seekers out of the country while their cases are being processed and could possibly curb the practice of ‘catch and release.’
Additionally, U.S. officials reportedly believe the new policy could dissuade migration and the formation of caravans from Central America.
