Mexico Denies Tentative Deal, Migrants Plan San Ysidro Protest Sunday

As usual in the fickle world of politics, now the government of Mexico is denying they made a deal with the Trump administration, as we reported Saturday. And today’s the day at least some of the migrants plan to march on the San Ysidro border crossing at 12 EST. That crossing was briefly shut down last week while border “hardening” occurred.

Different media are reporting that the march is either a run on the crossing or a “peaceful protest.”

Fox reported,

The marchers are expected to head out from the stadium, where many have been staying, and attempt to cross the border in a major test for both U.S. border authorities and Mexican officials. On Saturday, the first episode of caravan-related violence directed at U.S. authorities was reported by U.S. Border Patrol, as a 31-year-old Honduran man who apparently split off from the caravan threw rocks at agents and a helicopter in Arizona after setting a tree on fire.

The prospective deal between the U.S. and Mexico was seen as a way to dissuade thousands of Central American migrants from seeking asylum in the U.S., a process that can take years. The legal bar for claiming asylum is high and generally requires applicants to show a specific risk of persecution based on factors such as race, nationality, politics or religion.

Will this be “peaceful?” Will the border be shut down completely?

The original story from Saturday read, in part:

Fox reports that the Trump administration has brokered a tentative deal with the Mexican government to keep asylum seekers in Mexico while their paperwork is processed.

The “Remain in Mexico” agreement would only be a temporary solution.  The Trump administration hopes it will stop the “catch and release” policy that allows illegals to stay in the United States. Asylum claims can go on for years, according to Breitbart.

The group who met together consisted of Marcelo Ebrard, Mexico’s incoming foreign minister, and top U.S. officials such as Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen. Incoming Mexican Interior Minister Olga Sanchez Cordero told reporters it would only be a short term solution.
