Mexico to Maintain its Migration Policy at its Borders

Mexico to Maintain its Migration Policy at its Borders

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said the Trump administration sees Mexico "stepping up and taking a greater sense of responsibility" for dealing with the immigration flows that us officials say are overwhelming ports of entry along the border. "Therefore, CONGRESS MUST CHANGE OUR WEAK IMMIGRATION LAWS NOW, & Mexico must stop illegals from entering the US through their country and our Southern Border".

President Trump is set to visit the border crossing in San Diego, California later this week.

Trump added in remarks to reporters Friday night, "I've ended payments to Guatemala, to Honduras and El Salvador".

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen has ordered Customs and Border Protection to deploy "emergency surge operations" to the southern border and dramatically expand a Trump administration program that requires migrants to wait in Mexico as they apply for asylum in the United States.

"We are not going to have a confrontation with the USA government", Lopez Obrador said. He said last week that authorities could stop the Central Americans but lacked the willpower to do so.

The entire US auto industry would shut down within a week if President Donald Trump goes through with his pledge to close the US-Mexican border, according to a leading expert on the industry.

Border officials are aiming to more than quadruple the number of asylum seekers sent back over the southern border each day, a major expansion of a top government effort to address the swelling number of Central Americans arriving in the country, a Trump administration official said Saturday.

Sales increased by 19.5 per cent to about 721 billion yuan ($107 billion), CNN reported. "The U.S. government has a loser's attitude ".

President Trump: "Massive caravans walking right through Mexico".

The US immigration courts have enough workload for them given that there are too many cases for them to handle and some have even been extended to a year's waiting period.

It has not been made clear when Trump plans to put a closure into effect.

CBP Commissioner Kevin McAleenan said last week that the immigration system had reached its "breaking point, " with thousands of families and unaccompanied minors surrendering at the border daily and packing holding cells, immigration jails, and shelters. "So we contacted the Border Patrol to ask them that question".

Former Kansas secretary of state Kris Kobach and former Virginia attorney general Ken Cuccinelli are reportedly under consideration to fill the new position, which would either be housed in the Department of Homeland Security or the White House.

U.S. Border Patrol projections are for over 90,000 apprehensions at the border during March, according to data provided to the Mexican government - a more than 140 percent increase from March 2018, and a seven-fold jump from 2017.
