The White House and the Trump Administration is apparently on the verge of making a move that will certainly raise controversy among those who oppose the president. The president’s administration will begin to force those seeking asylum at a California p out of entry to turn around at the border and wait in Mexico while their paperwork is being processed in courts within the United States. This is according to a US official.
The new policy, which will be announced on Friday, will be enforced at San Diego’s San Ysidro border crossing. This port of entry is one of the nation’s busiest, a US official told The Associated Press.
The “Remain in Mexico” initiative is what this new process is being called. It is likely to face legal challenges in the courtroom and an outcry from immigration advocacy groups.
A plan for the new policy emerged during bilateral talks in Mexico City over the last few days.
The plan would require the United States to bus those seeking asylum back and forth to the border for court hearings in downtown San Diego.
Many of the asylum seekers are Central American and would have to seek temporary refuge at Mexican border towns.
What are your thoughts about this “Remain in Mexico” plan? Do you think this is the right move by the Trump administration? What do you think the repercussions will be with an initiative like this?
We look forward to seeing your comments at the end of this article.
