Mexico quiet over ‘Stay’ policy

Local News

RIO GRANDE VALLEY, Texas – The Mexican government has remained silent on U.S. policy making Central American migrants seeking U.S. asylum wait in Mexico.

Today a U.S. federal appeals court ruled that the Trump administration can make those migrants wait in Mexico for their immigration court hearings while the policy is challenged in court.

Mexico’s immigration agency says more than 4,200 Central American asylum seekers have already been returned through three border cities this week.

The U.S. government has said it wants to expand the program across the entire border.
