MEXICO CITY — The Trump administration has won the support of Mexico’s incoming government for a plan to remake U.S. border policy by requiring asylum seekers to wait in Mexico while their claims move through U.S. courts, according to Mexican officials and senior members of president-elect Andrés Manuel López Obrador’s transition team.
The agreement would break with long-standing asylum rules and place a formidable new barrier in the path of Central American migrants attempting to reach the United States and escape poverty and violence. By reaching the accord, the Trump administration has also overcome Mexico’s historic reticence to deepen cooperation with the United States on an issue widely seen here as America’s problem.
The White House had no immediate comment.

It seems that the threat of losing the economic good will of the USA over rides their indifference to our country being overrun with everyone with a dream.

It could work as long as the new policy is followed and they don't include "I want a better job" as a new condition for granting asylum.

Apparently Mexico thinks it is shy about 100,000 workers for one thing. For another there will likely be either an upfront or backdoor financial sweetener for Mexico. We already send off money to them to help with the asylum/refugee issue. Lastly I expect Mexico will be looking for US assurance in keeping Central Americans employed in Central America which is actually the right activity to be engaged in directionally.

For the record, I still fully support the socialist Scandinavian countries that everyone refers to so often as 'the good' willingly and openly volunteering to take in 10000 illegal immigrants, just as I support the mass exodus of illegals into the waiting arms of the Canadians.
