Mother Jumping Border Fence With Kids Falls, Is Impaled

Mexico's new government agrees to Trump's 'asylum waiting room' plan

Officials say the rebar is part of the ongoing work to replace decades-old fencing and is not connected with the USA military's recent mission to strengthen the fence in response to the caravan. President Enrique Pena Nieto offered thousands of Central Americans asylum on October 26 if they agreed to remain in southern Mexico.

Migrants from Central America sleep in tents in Tijuana, Mexico, near the border with the United States.

On the U.S. side of the fence, shoppers streamed in and out of an outlet mall.

US President Donald Trump threatened on Saturday to close border with Mexico, if necessary, to fight illegal immigration.

Immigrants seeking asylum in the United States by entering through Mexico could be required to wait south of the border while USA courts assess their cases, a member of the incoming Mexican government said in an interview published Saturday.

Asylum seekers will be given an initial screening to determine whether they face imminent danger by staying in Mexico, where violence is widespread.

But the Post quoted Olga Sanchez Cordero, Mexico's interior minister-designate, as saying Mexico's new government had accepted the policy as a "short term solution" to the issue of Central American migration - which has been dramatized in recent weeks as thousands of US -bound Central Americans have made their way north through Mexico in caravans.

"The hope is that asylum seekers will not want to live in (Mexico) for months/years and won't come", Leutert said via Twitter.

Trump reiterated that only those who are eligible for refugee status would be allowed in the United States. But agents at the San Diego port of entry process fewer than 100 claims per day.

Moreover, she said Mexico's new government had rejected any deal in which Mexico would be considered "a safe third country" for USA asylum applicants.

Thousands of migrants - including women and children - are now at the US-Mexico border after travelling more than 4,000km (2,500 miles) from Central America.

Democrats and human rights activists are likely to be concerned about the "Remain in Mexico" strategy, and in the past have expressed concern it may put migrants at risk and make it more hard for them to apply for asylum.

The upkeep of the migrants has cost Tijuana a hefty sum - almost 550,000 pesos a day [$27,000], mayor Juan Manuel Gastelum said Friday, accusing the government of lackluster response to the crisis and unwillingness to share the burden.

Alicia Ramirez, 65, a Tijuana businesswoman, said she had been anxious she wouldn't be able to make her annual Black Friday crossing to do her Christmas shopping, but had no trouble walking into California.

"I don't have anything against the migrants, they were the most deceived, but this is affecting us all", Vazquez said.

In 2018, border patrols registered more than 400,000 illegal border crossers, according to Homeland Security, and in the last five years, the number of those requesting asylum has increased by 2,000 percent.

Rene Vazquez, 60, a Tijuana resident who was volunteering at the stadium, said Mexico's federal government ignored the problem by allowing the caravan to cross the country without stopping. He tweeted, "our very strong policy is Catch and Detain".
