Mexico: US to return 20 migrants daily in new asylum plan

The Mexican government said Friday the United States plans to return 20 migrants per day to Mexico as they await an answer to their U.S. asylum claims. Roberto Velasco, the spokesman for Mexico’s Foreign Relations Department said “the Mexican government doesn’t agree with this unilateral move,” but will accept the migrants under certain conditions. Velasco said the first 20 migrants would be returned at the San Ysidro crossing, across from Tijuana, “in the next few hours.” He said all are Central Americans and all apparently had temporary visas in Mexico. That suggests they may have been part of last year’s migrant caravans, given that many were given such visas.
